Aside from visiting historical landmarks, we highly recommend a tour of Armenia’s beloved capital – the city of Yerevan.Legend says that the first word Noah pronounced as he exited the ark was “Yerevats” – translated as “it can be seen”. This refers to the land he supposedly saw after the huge flood, which was later changed to “Yerevan”.In addition, you can find the real etymology of the word Yerevan during our first stop of the day – the museum of Erebuni, where the history of Yerevan starts. You will visit the museum and the ruins of the ancient fortress-city, which dates back to the 8th century B.C.From Erebuni, the tour will take you to Tsitsernakaberd, the memorial of Armenian Genocide. The memorial is visited by every single Armenian all over the entire universe to pay respect to their ancestors.The following stop will be at the house-museum of Sergey Parajanov, one of the greatest film directors of the 20th century, and a man of no boundaries. You will discover how this exceptional individual managed to keep his free spirit and creativity in a world where it was not encouraged. The museum also offers one of the best vista points of the city. The last spot included in this daily trip is the brandy factory “Ararat”, where you will get familiar with the history of the legendary Armenian Cognac, as well as have the chance to actually taste and purchase it directly from the factory.
Trip to Garni Temple, Geghard Monastery, “Lavash” baking and tasting-If you are planning on travelling to Armenia, don’t forget to include this unforgettable destination in your plans. Our fantastic tour will introduce you to the exotic Pagan history of Armenia, and show the later development and spread of Christianity in the country. Garni Temple (77 A.D.) – our first stop – is the only standing heathen temple in the whole post-Soviet area. The temple gracefully stands on a high plateau overlooking the Azat river gorge. The plateau itself is incredibly beautiful and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the surrounding area. It is also home to the roman bath house with the mysterious mosaic, made out of 30,000 pieces of natural stones, as well as the ruins of the royal palace, dating back to 3rd century A.D. The monastic complex of Geghard is another historical site included in this daily tour. Approximately translated into English as “Monastery of the Holy Lance”, it refers to the lance with which Longinus pierced Jesus still hanging on the cross, later brought to Armenia and kept in the Geghard monastery for 5 centuries.
