DAY 1 – Arriving Yerevan
Welcome to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. Upon your arrival at Zvartnots International Airport, you will be greeted by our
representative who will escort you to your designated hotel. Complete the check-in formalities and relax for a bit.
DAY 2 – Yerevan City Tour
A variety of options waits to be explored during your Yerevan city tour. The tour begins with a visit to the Erebuni Fortress also known as Arin Berd. It is a fortified city from the ancient kingdom of Urartu, located in what is present-day Yerevan, Armenia. It was one of the most important political, economic and cultural centers of the vast kingdom.
Next you will be visiting Mother Armenia, a statue which was constructed to replace a monumental statue of Joseph Stalin. Thereafter, you will head to the Cascade Complex. This is a giant stairway in the capital city which links downtown Kentron area of Yerevan with the Monument neighborhood. The cascade stands as a Cafesjian Centre for Arts after Mr. Cafesjian who worked with City of Yerevan and the government of Armenia initiated its recent revitalization. The cascade is an attracting tourist hub never to be missed! The stairs afford walkers unobstructed views of central Yerevan and Mount Ararat.
The views of Mount Ararat are so breathtaking and it is at this juncture you remember the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark which is believed to have rested on this Mountain after the flood ended.
From the Cascade, you will be heading to the Opera House. A visit to the Republic Square awaits you next. The Square is famous for the dancing water fountains located at the north-eastern end along the National Gallery. The buildings around the Square are made of rose and white Armenian tufa stones and provide a great insight into the architectural heritage of Armenia.
If you are looking for some shopping during your holiday to Armenia, Vernissage (open only on week-ends) is the place to be. Hundreds of vendors selling a variety of crafts and souvenirs will leave you spoilt for choice. Woodcarving items, antiques, and wool carpets can also be bought from here. All in all, an enjoyable and exhilarating experience awaits you in Armenia – a highly exuberant and endearing country.
