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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Garni Temple and The Monastery of Geghard. Visit Khor Virap and Saint Hripsime Church for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Golden Grape Armas Estate (in Nor Yedesia) and Armenia Wine Company (in Sasunik). Dedicate the 3rd (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, pause for some serene contemplation at The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots, shop like a local with Northern Avenue Pedestrian Street, and admire the natural beauty at Armenian Genocide Museum.
