A youthful and vibrant energy is coursing through this gem of a country in the heart of the Caucasus. Armenia’s diverse and rich history, ~2500 years, is a real focus and while the country cannot lay sole claim to being ground zero for religious tourism, it does offer some of the most atmospheric and beautifully located churches anywhere in the world. Add to this a rapidly evolving wine scene, the rustic delights of the Armenian table, and overwhelming hospitality especially in rural areas, and you have a perfectly balanced experience. A visit to Armenia is educational, invigorating and full of surprises….go now before it is re-discovered.
