Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard), Khor Virap (in Lusarat) and Garni Temple (in Garni). Dedicate the 2nd (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, make a trip to Yerevan Cascade, explore the galleries of Armenian Genocide Museum, and appreciate the history behind Alexander Tamanyan Statue.

Sulaymaniyah, Iraq to Yerevan is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Sulaymaniyah to Yerevan due to the time zone difference. In June, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can drive to Lake Sevan.
