Sighnaghi is a small beautiful town of Kakheti region. About 10 years ago it was the forgotten dull town, which after the extensive restoration has become a delightful civilized tourist center with cobbled streets and cozy houses with bright red tile roofs. The town’s architecture is made in the style of southern Italian classicism. There have also been built a number of hotels and guest houses corresponding to any taste and preferences. Sighnaghi is also known as “the town of love”, and the reason is that there is a special wedding house, where you can get married at any time without prior delivery of documents.
One of the main attractions of the town is Sighnaghi Fortress located on a high hill. This is one of the largest and most famous forts in Georgia. It has about 28 watchtowers, and if you climb on one of them, you can admire the magnificent view that opens to the Alazani Valley.
Being located in the wine region of Georgia, Kakheti, Sighnaghi has also become the center of wine tourism, and annually attracts many tourists. Without exaggeration, it can be said that the visit to Sighnaghi is included in almost all tour packages around eastern Georgia.
