Tour brief description
Explore Armenia’s UNESCO World Heritage–listed treasures on this day tour from Yerevan. Visit the iconic Temple of Garni — widely considered the country’s most important symbol of pre-Christian Armenia — with a guide and admire the classical Hellenistic architecture you find. Enjoy breathtaking views over Mt Ararat on route to the UNESCO–listed monastery complex of Geghard. On arrival, discover medieval chapels cut out of the rugged rock face, gain insight into the site’s 4th-century history and marvel at the mighty cliffs of the Azat River gorge.
You will be picked up from your hotel where the tour will start at 10am and last approximately 4-5 hours. The first stop is Garni, a Pagan Temple and fortress referred to as the well known symbol of pre-Christian Armenia that was converted into a royal summer house. After exploring the grand structure you will then stop at Ararat ARC where we’ll have a fantastic view to mount Ararat, a snow capped dormant volcano situated in Turkey. From here you will visit the UNESCO listed Geghard Monastery Complex. Some of the churches are situated in caves, whilst others are dug out of the surrounding rock face.
