When I selected Armenia to be my destination, I didn't know anything about it at all. Though it is a small country, even my three day visit was not enough to explore everything!
Armenia is in fact the only country remaining from 3,000 year old maps of Anatolia and became the world's first Christian country more than 1,700 years ago!
This former Soviet republic has a rich and ancient culture spanning thousands of years, so what are you waiting for?
Let's get you on your way to Yerevan!
I will assist you in reaching Yerevan and returning home, along with any stops in between that you may decide to make.
While you are in Armenia, you will be in the care of my very good friend Nvard!
My three day visit consisted of Geghard Monastery and Lake Sevan on day one. Tatev Monastery and Noravank Monastery, along with wine tasting on the second day. My final day was all en-route to Georgia and included the stunning Haghpat Monastery along with some very interesting sites along the mountain road leading into Georgia.
Warning: You may not want to leave Armenia once you fall in love with it!
There are no visa requirements for US citizens visiting for tourism.
No vaccinations are required to enter Armenia.
Starting with having your name in lights at Zvartnots Airport, Nvard makes sure you enjoy your visit as her VIP guest!
I am always nervous to meet new people, but I think by the end of day one we had become friends. Listening to her speak about the history and culture I could tell she really loves her country and soon after I came to love it as well!
I don't think I had ever been so sad to leave a country until we parted ways!
Rest assured, you will make a new friend in Armenia and come to love the country as if it is your second home!
