Getting There & Away
Marshrutky to Gelati (1 GEL, 30 minutes) leave from Brosse behind the Drama Theatre in Kutaisi at 8am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm, passing the Motsameta turn-off en route. The last one back from Gelati is at 4.30pm. If you’re visiting both places, it’s a mostly downhill road-walk of about one hour from Gelati to Motsameta, should the return marshrutka schedules not suit: you can cut 800m off the distance by heading to the left along the railway after 3.5km.
A taxi round-trip from Kutaisi to Gelati typically costs 25 GEL, or 30 GEL with Motsameta too.
