Today our sightseeing programme combines two incredible historical sights. The Temple of Garni is unusual for Armenia in that it is an Ionic pagan temple with Greco-Roman colonnades. It was built in the 1st century AD; though it collapsed during a 17th century earthquake, it was painstakingly restored in the early 1970s. Nearby, you’ll find the UNESCO-listed Geghard Monastery. Gregory the Illuminator founded it in the 4th century, where there was a sacred spring in a cave. The present structure dates from 1315 and you can pay a visit to the spring to this day. Return to Yerevan after your tour and the rest of the day is free to enjoy at leisure. Overnight in Yerevan. (B, D)

The views from this spectacular monastery are first rate but head inside and descend the steps to see its well too. Next up is Noravank. Hidden away up a canyon, this monastery occupies a setting even more dramatic. Climb to the second floor of the church for incredible views back along the valley. Finally, we’ll take you to Areni. There, we’ll enjoy a wine-tasting at one of Armenia’s premier wineries where there’ll be a chance to pick up a bottle or two to take home with you. Overnight in Yerevan. (B, D)
