Armenia excursions and day tours

Yerevan City Tour
We begin our city tour of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. Older than Rome, Yerevan is one of the oldest cities in the world. After a visit to the city’s history museum we move on to the remarkable Matenadaran Library. It is one of the world’s oldest repositories of Greek, Persian and Arabic manuscripts with over 17000 rare items in its collection. Later, we’ll have the opportunity to taste Armenia’s favourite drink, cognac, during a tour of a brandy factory.

Visit Noravank Monastery
We will visit Noravank - a twelfth century monastery perched on a lofty ledge in a sheer cliff face. The monastery is best known for its two-storey Surb Astvatsatsin (Holy Mother of God) church. From it, a dramatic view of a meandering gorge makes it worth the trip.
