Baku — 12 nights

Dedicate the 10th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Baku Old City, examine the collection at Heydar Aliyev Center, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of History of Azerbaijan, and take in the dramatic natural features at Yanardag.
