Ararat Province

Ararat Province ©
Ararat, is a province of Armenia. Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Fri): don't miss a visit to Republic Square and then explore the galleries of Cafesjian Center for the Arts. On the next day, explore the ancient world of Khor Virap, see the interesting displays at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, then take in nature's colorful creations at Armenian Genocide Museum, and finally see the interesting displays at History Museum of Armenia.

Make your Ararat Province itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Beirut, Lebanon to Ararat Province is an approximately 3-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or do a combination of ferry, bus, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Beirut to Ararat Province. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Beirut in August since evenings lows in Ararat Province dip to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can drive to Dilijan.
