Yerevan tourism guide for 2007. and have produced a very nice guide to Yerevan for 2007. I would recommend to download the 150 page PDF file for a more streamlined reading. Otherwise, the July 6, 2007 edition of ArmeniaNow has the articles in separate web pages.

They recommend walking around rather than renting a car for sightseeing in Yerevan. That's exactly what I do when I'm there since most of the stuff you want to see is in the center. When the day gets hot, you are never far from a cafe or an ice cream vendor. And if you are too tired to walk just hop in a metro train - it will help you cool down and get some peace; it's much more pleasant than trying to travel in a hot mini bus. If you want to test your endurance, try climbing Kascad to the Victory Park. After the climb, the water from the pulpulaks in the park will be the best tasting water you have ever had. When the water supply became privately managed and the street vendors selling juice and other refreshments popped up everywhere, I was afraid that the pulpulaks would go away but fortunately that did not happen.

If you are lucky enough to be going to Armenia this summer/fall, check out the guide. This is part 1 so I am sure they will have more guides covering the rest of Armenia.
