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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Garni Temple as well as Khor Virap. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots and Saint Gayane Church. Get some cultural insight at The Monastery of Geghard and Hovhannavank Monastery. Venture out of the city with trips to Armenia Wine (in Sasunik), Saghmosavank Monastery (in Artashavan) and Garni (Charent's Arch & Amenaprkich Church). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Zoravor S. Astvatsatsin Church, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Hripsime Church, and see the interesting displays at Megerian Carpet Museum.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Yerevan fast, fun, and easy.
