Erebuni Fortress

Bike Touring Highlight

Recommended by Tom Allen


  • Tom Allen

    The impressive hilltop citadel of Erebuni overlooks Yerevan on the outskirts of the city and just happens to be on a quiet cycling route into Ararat province. The fort is thought to date back to 782 BC and gives the modern city of Yerevan its name. There's a museum housing archaeological relics, but you can also just climb to the hilltop and enjoy the view. (There's a small road entrance to the right of the main steps up to the building which will take you and you bike to the front of the museum.)
