< Armenia Travel and Tourism

The half day and one day itineraries are recommended trips that start from Yerevan. For two day trips or longer, overnight stay locations are in italics. (Sites in parenthesis are optional) Crossed out sites mean that you probably do not want to go unless you have a 4x4 vehicle, or are willing to take a long hike. To see ratings of how much I like particular sites, visit the site ratings page. Many of these places may be very difficult to find without a copy of Rediscovering Armenia Guidebook
