Venture out of the city with trips to Garni (Charent's Arch & Amenaprkich Church), Saghmosavank Monastery (in Artashavan) and Armenia Wine (in Sasunik). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Ervand Kochar Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Hripsime Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Gayane Church, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
