Rustaveli Avenue is the central avenue in Tbilisi named after the medieval Georgian poet, Shota Rustaveli. The avenue starts at Freedom Square and extends for about 1.5 km in length.
We walked from the Freedom square to the end of Rustaveli road passed many government and cultural buildings on the way including
The Parliament of Georgia building, the Georgian National Opera Theater, the Rustaveli State Academic Theater, the Georgian Academy of Sciences, as well as the Kashveti Church.

Rustaveli is good for long walks, and it has so many beautiful and historic buildings. You can take a walk from the beginning to the end and see lots of cool places and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.

We went in December and it was all lit up for Xmas, just so gorgeous, amazing old buildings, full of history and decked out with Xmas lighted, trees and decorations. Certainly worth a walk down at night time.

Lovely Avenue to go for a stroll no matter what time of day... here is always something to see and to explore.
Just all bar and restaurant prices are overpriced!
In my opinion - nice to walk along.... but just a lot of tourist traps.
Be careful which restaurant you chose!

Our hotel was located one block away, so the avenue is where we walked up and down each day. There were so many historical landmarks along the way, as well as a ton of great shops and restaurants to choose from!

Named after a famous medieval Georgian poet “Shota Rustaveli”, it is a charming culturally rich street, and you have to spend some time just walking around the avenue.
The street starts at Freedom/Liberty Square, running along for about 1.5 KM, and along its sides, you will find some of the most important and magnificent buildings of Tbilisi, such as the "Parliament of Georgia", the "Kashveti St. George Church", the "Rustaveli Theater", the "Georgian National Museum", the "Tbilisi Opera House", as well as a lot of hotels, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops…etc. such a lovely experience.

This is certainly Tbilisi's most beautiful and affluent Avenue! This central avenue was formerly known as "Golovin Street" and was renamed after the medieval Georgian acclaimed poet "Shota Rustaveli'. It starts at "Freedom Square" and runs for about 1,5km up to Kostava Street. Along its shaded sides, some of the most important and magnificent buildings of Tbilisi, as the "Parliament of Georgia", the "Kashveti St. George Church", the "Rustaveli Theater", the "Georgian National Museum", the "Tbilisi Opera House", as well as hotels, restaurants, cafés, shops and offices. Just unmissable at any visit to Tbilisi! Enjoy!

The upmarket street is named after a medieval Georgian poet. It starts at the Freedom square and is considered to be the main street of Tbilisi. It is home to many government and public buildings including the former Parliament of Georgia, Rustaveli Cinema, Opera and many other buildings. The avenue has also been the site of many anti-government protests both during and after the Soviet era.

This is the most beautiful avenue in Tbilisi and is definitely worth a visit.

Rustaveli Avenue is the main thoroughfare of Central Tbilisi and was originally known as Golovin Street. The prestigious avenue was named after Georgian poet Shota Rustavelli. Rustaveli Avenue has a wide range of sights and attractions including the Parliament of Georgia, Georgian National Opera Theatre, 9th of April Park amongst many others. We were staying to the north of Rustaveli Avenue so we had time to visit several times and also we were able to walk its entire length on one occasion. Rustaveli Avenue has an abundance of attractions within a relatively small area and is worth spending a few days to explore the district.
