As I have already mentioned, there are a lot of old entrances with some history. For example, there is a house in Machabeli Street with a very beautiful entrance and a lot of legends to go with it. Also nearby there is a house in Tabidze Street with very beautiful entrance (there are paintings on the interior walls) Also in the vicinity there is a renovated London Hotel (down to the 9th April park), which is very famous among the guests of the capital.

If you are interested in multicultural and multireligious buildings, old Tbilisi is the best place to walk around. For example, you can find Catholic, Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim churches in a very close neighbourhood.

As for food, old Tbilisi can offer you a great variety of the Georgian and European cuisine, there are also some vegetarian and vegan cafes around (for example Kiwi) which can offer you very delicious vegan hummus and cream soups, in case you want to taste the famous adjaruli khachapuri, you can visit Machakhela (a small cafe in Leselidze street) and order one. Trust me, you will never taste anything as delicious as this khachapuri.
