Description

Visit the reconstructed Temple of Garni to view the classical Hellenistic temple near Garni, the only Greco Roman colonnaded building in Armenia and the former Soviet Union. Geghard is a Medieval Monastery that is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site carved out of the adjacent mountain side, surrounded by cliffs.

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 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. You will then be transferred back to Yerevan.
