Details

The monasteries, churches and cathedrals of Georgia and Armenia are amongst the oldest in the world. Many are built in stunning locations, surrounded by gardens and forests, perched on top of dramatic gorges or silhouetted before snowcapped mountains. The range of scenery is immense, from Mount Ararat towering majestically over the skyline of Yerevan, to the lush valleys of ancient vineyards across the lowlands of Georgia. Here, wine has been produced for almost 10,000 years and there is the opportunity to visit one of its most famous wine cellars. 

Highlights

* Visit UNESCO churches and fortresses in Georgia * See Mount Ararat towering over Yerevan * Explore spectacular monasteries in Armenia including Khor Virap * Walk amongst the pre-Christian cave houses in Uplistsikhe * Experience cafe culture in Tbilisi * Have the option to add-on an Azerbaijan extension
