Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival in Yerevan - city tour
 
Arrival in Yerevan. Meet your driver at the airport. Transfer to the Hotel. Check in at noon. After short rest start exploring Yerevan, one of the world’s oldest cities. Yerevan is often referred to as a “Pink City” and impresses visitors with its grand Soviet architecture. Our first stop in will be at the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex on Tsitsernakaberd Hill. Next, we will visit the modern symbol of Yerevan – Cascade Monument. The Cascade is a giant stairway (572 steps) linking the downtown area of Yerevan with the Monument neighborhood. From the top of the monument you can capture the best panorama of Yerevan and the Mountain Ararat. Continue exploring the city by walking along the beautiful streets, past Opera House, Republic Square, and Abovyan Avenue. Transfer to the hotel. The rest of the evening free. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 2: Yerevan – Garni – Symphony of Stones – Geghard – Etchmiadzin – Yerevan
 
Depart Yerevan and drive to Garni, the only pagan temple in Armenia that survived Christianization of Armenia in the 4th century. Descend Garni Gorge to explore a monumental rock formation called Symphony of Stones. The next stop is Geghard Monastery (meaning "spear" in Armenian). The monastery complex was founded in the 4th century by Gregory the Illuminator at the site of a sacred spring inside a cave. Continue to Etchmiadzin. According to many scholars it was the first cathedral built in ancient Armenia.
