Your experience

  • Enjoy your lunch in a special cave restaurant
  • Take part in a free wine tasting on request

Description

You will be picked up comfortably at your accommodation and taken to Khor Virap, a well-known place in Armenia. The monastery there became sadly famous because of earlier events.

Gregory the Illuminator, who once wanted to spread Christianity in Armenia, is said to have been imprisoned in the monastery for 13 years by the then king as punishment. According to legend, Gregor did not bend. In addition to this eventful past, the monastery also offers you a wonderful view of the idyllic setting between the vineyards.

Next, you will get to know a region of Armenia that is known for its long winegrowing tradition. According to recent discoveries, this is also attested by one of the oldest wine jugs ever found. Enjoy lunch in a stunning natural cave restaurant in the Norawank Gorge.

Then visit the local monastery. Marvel at this masterpiece of architectural art located in the narrow gorge and framed by the impressive rocks. Learn more about its history and the different architectural styles that have been incorporated before you return to Yerevan. On your way back you will have the opportunity to visit the Areni Winery. Take part in a free wine tasting, which will round off your excursion perfectly
