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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Parajanov Museum and Yerevan Brandy Factory. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Noratus Cemetery and The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Garni (Garni Temple & Garni Gorge), St. Grigor (Doputs Monastery) (in Noratus) and The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Cafesjian Center for the Arts and explore the ancient world of Khor Virap.

Tallinn, Estonia to Yerevan is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Tallinn to Yerevan due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Tallinn in October: high temperatures in Yerevan hover around 22°C and lows are around 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Areni.
