Product Description

 

Cities: Tehran – Kashan – Abyaneh – Esfahan – Pasargad – Shiraz – Abarkuh – Yazd – Tehran

This classic travel package includes a visit to 5 cities in Iran. Your Iran travel adventure starts in the capital city of Tehran. In this vibrant metropolis you will visit many beautiful palaces and highly artistic museums. At your hotel in Tehran, our driver will pick you up for a ride to the ancient desert city of Kashan. On the way to Qom, you will pass a vast salt lake on the edge of the desert with amazing views.

Kashan is most famous for its traditional merchant houses, the Hammam Khan and Fin Garden. On the third day of your trip, on the way to Esfahan you visit the picturesque, red mountain village of Abyaneh.  In Esfahan, the cultural capital of Iran, you will enter the glory of old times that goes back to the 17th century during King Shah Abbas when Esfahan was the capital of Iran. In Esfahan the amazing 17th century architecture of impressive buildings like Siosepol Bridge will astonish you. You will also visit Ali Qapu Palace which is located at the second largest city square of the world Naghshe Jahan.

From Esfahan we travel by car to Shiraz. On the way to Shiraz, we will visit Pasargad the ancient capital of the Persian Empire. The tomb of Cyrus the Great is located here. Shiraz is the city of poets, greenery and love. This city is surrounded by many historical monuments and regions such as Persepolis. From Shiraz we ride through desert to Yazd. Along the way it is also possible to visit the desert town Abarkuh where you can see the millennial sacred cypress, perhaps the oldest tree in the world.

In Yazd you can discover and enjoy taking long walks through a labyrinth of very narrow old alleys. Also you can get familiar with Zoroastrianism, the oldest and original Iranian religion. Followers of Zarathustra still keep the holy fire burning in historical fire temples (Atashkadeh).

After two inspiring weeks, you travel with a night train in a sleeping coupe and you go back to Tehran. A wonderful moment to review your travel experiences and socialize with some friendly Iranian fellow passengers in the train.
