Weekend Deal – Armenia – 5 days / 4 nights
After breakfast at the hotel, we will have a morning walk in the pink city of Yerevan. This ancient city is 29 years older than Rome. We will start walking in the most pleasant Republic Square with Government buildings, History Museum, and Marriott Hotel surrounding it. In the evening we can enjoy the colorful singing and dancing fountains. Walking up one of the oldest streets in Yerevan – Abovyan Street – we will appear on the richest avenue in Yerevan – the Northern Avenue with many brand shops, luxurious cafes, and restaurants. Our next stop – the Opera and Ballet House and the Swan Lake – face Northern Avenue. We will enjoy our time in the fascinating weather of sunny Yerevan while walking around Cascade Monument. If we walk up the “huge staircase” of 500 meters in height and 50 meters in width, we can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the city with the spectacular Opera House, Mount Ararat as well as the view of the whole city. We will then walk up the huge stairs to the Park of Freedom. Here the whole city seems to be in our hands. Magnificent view. At Tsitsernakaberd Hill we will pay a tribute to the victims of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire. During these mass killings, more than 1.5 million people were massacred, and even more spread around the world, forming a huge Armenian Diaspora. Overnight at the hotel in Yerevan.
After breakfast at the hotel drive to the whole year-round resort town of Tsaghkadzor. Here we can enjoy riding Quadracycles, then use the ropeway to get to the mountain and enjoy the magnificent panorama all around. Continue to the azure Lake Sevan. Lake Sevan has a unique combination of great size, high mountain location, and comparatively “soft water”. Lake Sevan is one of the greatest freshwater high-mountain lakes in Eurasia. It is located at about 2000 meters above sea level. (Optional* lunch tasting barbeque from Sevan trout). We will then explore the summer residence of the Favorite Armenian King Ashot the Iron (Ashot Erekat) – Sevanavank Monastery (9th century). After enjoying our time in nature, we will have to return to Yerevan. Overnight at the hotel in Yerevan.
