Corinthian Travel Steps into Armenia
By: Corinthian Travel
The relatively little-visited Republic is a pristine eastern land of snowy mountains and deep blue lakes; magnificent rock-hewn churches and dramatic cave villages; flowering meadows and golden apricots (some scholars have identified as the bible's earthly Paradise).
The south Caucasus country is small in area, but its people have long been a 'global nation' and have a fascinating history. In 301 AD the Armenians were the first nation to embrace Christianity and their great kings once held the balance of power between ancient Rome and Persia. Throughout history Armenia has survived massacres and brutality; but the spirit and traditions of its people remain as steadfast as the twin-peaks of its holy mountain, Ararat – now within the borders of Turkey.
Corinthian's new programme is designed to provide an in-depth insight into the little- known ancient nation ranging from its national obsession with chess, Yerevan's culinary scene, and the stunning churches, monasteries and mountains.
Corinthian has three initial itineraries, one of which, combines Armenia with neighbour and another ex-soviet country, Georgia.
