Early morning is great for climbing up to the top of the Cascade and admiring the view of the yet sleeping city with Mount Ararat in the horizon. At daytime, it's worth visiting Matenadaran and Vernissage; the sundown hours are the best for enjoying the Singing fountains in the Republic Square and sitting in a Northern Avenue café.
