Below are my notes for visiting Armenia. These travel tips for visiting Armenia are obtained from a variety of sources including some of the following: my first hand observations, personal conversations, magazines, newspapers, websites, books and so forth.
Best Time to Visit Armenia
Short Answer: September.
Longer Answer: Avoid wintertime. Summertime can be quite hot. Spring is rainy, even into summer. However, if you shoot for late-May or June through mid-October you should be reasonably good. July and August are hot but you can escape to higher elevations. A place like Gyumri is nice in the summer and has long days. Armenia has lots of micro-climates. Spring has wildflowers in bloom, etc. if you don’t mind some rain. September has grape harvests and changing leaf colours and the best weather.
Miscellaneous Travel Tips for Armenia
You can get around by bus or by minivans (marshrutka) which are rather affordable but not always very comfortable.
