Yerevan is a unique city. At first glance, the capital of Armenia seems modern, continuously re-building megapolis but if you take a stroll along its boulevards and streets, it will be clear that this place has been resided for thousands years and every house is a stone manuscript of the history of Yerevan. One-day Yerevan city tour will let you learn more about this beautiful city and no doubts that it will leave unforgettable memories.
One of the oldest cities of the world, Yerevan is famous as a pink city and calls visitors with its humble and at the same time splendid landscapes. Start the city tour with a visit to the 572-step Cascade Monument, which serves as the main symbol of the city’s 2780th anniversary. The mega scale staircase is 500 meters high and 50 meters wide. A panoramic view from the monument opens up breathtaking city view with Opera House, Mount Ararat, Swan Lake, Republic Square, and Abovyan Avenue, which you will also walk by during the tour. If it is a weekend, visit Vernissage, the biggest souvenir market in Yerevan.
Continue to the Armenian Genocide memorial complex on the hill of Tsitsernakaberd. An excellent round-up of the tour will be a visit to the Megeryan carpet factory where you can observe a process of creating famous Armenian rugs. You will see carpets from different regions of Armenia and find out about hidden meanings of elements used in their design.
