Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan - Armenia (Chapter)
This is the Armenia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan guidebook.
Despite past woes, Armenia has built its memorials, dusted itself off and moved on. Easily visited highlights include ancient monasteries, candlelit churches and high-walled forts – but lasting impressions lie more with the gracious, humble and easy-going Armenians themselves.
- immerse yourself in the lively cultural life, buzzing cafe scene and wealth of museums in the capital, Yerevan
- go exploring in the idyllic Yeghegis Valley, peppered with quaint villages, old churches and even a mysterious Jewish cemetery
- break for a few days in Dilijan for some fine mountain scenery, hiking trails and its revitalised historic old town
- restaurants & accommodation
