Popular historic sites such as The Monastery of Geghard and Saghmosavank Monastery are in your itinerary. Explore Yerevan's surroundings by going to Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Medieval Bridge (in Oshakan) and Sardarapat Memorial (in Araks). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hovhannavank Monastery, make a trip to Cafesjian Center for the Arts, take in the exciting artwork at Dalan Art Gallery, and examine the collection at Ervand Kochar Museum.
