Yerevan — 4 nights

Pink City

Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Megerian Carpet Museum and Eduard Isabekyan Gallery Yerevan. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Echmiadzin Monastery and Katoghike Church. Get out of town with these interesting Yerevan side-trips: Vagharshapat (Saint Gayane Church & The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots) and Armenia Wine (in Sasunik). Spend the 10th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Armenia, don't miss a visit to Zoravor S. Astvatsatsin Church, see the interesting displays at Ervand Kochar Museum, and view the masterpieces at Dalan Art Gallery.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Yerevan fast, fun, and easy.

Dilijan — 2 nights

Armenian Switzerland

An alpine haven resting in a plush evergreen national park, Dilijan has made a name for itself as the "Armenian Switzerland." A much-loved spa town rich in culture and history, uncover the majestic 10th century monasteries, undisturbed scenic vistas, and hiking trails through undulating forest.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Fri): take an in-depth tour of Memorial Museum of Orbeli Brothers, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kecharis Monastery, then enjoy the sand and surf at Hayravank Monastery, and finally appreciate the history behind Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Matosavank Monastery, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Parz, then examine the collection at Museum of Folk Art (Sharambeyan Centre of Popular Creation in Dilijan), and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Goshavank Monastery.

For ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Dilijan online holiday planner.

Getting from Yerevan to Dilijan by shuttle takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. In July, plan for daily highs up to 94°F, and evening lows to 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

Armenia travel guide

4.6
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites
A trip to Armenia may very well feel like a journey back in time, yielding the treasures of an ancient land that became the first Christianized country in distant 301 CE. Landlocked and mountainous, Armenia features a varied scenery that quickly shifts from extremely dry landscapes to dense forests carpeting steep foothills of the Lesser Caucasus. Perhaps the highlight of a vacation in Armenia, the magnificent mountains are ideal for hiking and any other outdoor activity you can think of. National capital Yerevan remains one of the world's least explored ancient cities; spend some time here to discover the bulk of Armenia's museums and other cultural venues narrating the rich story of an often-troubled region straddling two continents.
