Areni is a village in the Vayots Dzor Province of Armenia. Start off your visit on the 23rd (Fri): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Tsakhats Kar Monastery, identify plant and animal life at Vardenyats Pass (Selim Pass), then explore the fascinating underground world of T'rchuneri (Bird) Cave, and finally do a tasting at Areni Wine Factory. Here are some ideas for day two: do a tasting at Hin Areni Winery, learn about winemaking at Old Bridge Winery, then explore the stunning scenery at Noravank Gorge, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Noravank Monastery, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Astvatsatsin Church.

To plan Areni vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Areni is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Yerevan.

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.
Get outdoors at Hayravank Monastery and Mount Aragats. Your inner history buff will appreciate The Monastery of Geghard and The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots. Get out of town with these interesting Yerevan side-trips: Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Golden Grape Armas Estate (in Nor Yedesia) and Voskevaz (Aghtamir Fortress & Voskevaz Winery). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Cafesjian Center for the Arts, explore the world behind art at Museum of Folk Arts, get great views at Charent's Arch, and look for gifts at Proshyan Brandy Factory.
