Day 1 Kashan | ancient desert Town
Kashan means ancient and that is certainly true for this laid-back city along the Silk Road at the edge of the Dashte Kavir desert. Marco Polo once visited here on his trade mission to the far east. The merchants of Kashan were well known for producing and selling fine textiles in wool and silk. Their wealth and refined taste is displayed in their richly ornamented courtyard houses which you will most certainly visit. Many of them are converted into boutique hotel/restaurants offering an Iranian lunch. Another example of Kashani life style is the colorful bazaar and the Agha bozoorg mosque.
With private chauffeur to Isfahan
After a pleasant Kashan visit your private driver takes you to Isfahan. A comfortable ride of about 2.5 hours brings you right into the lively centre of Isfahan. This cultural capital of Iran is named Nesve Jahan which translates to Half of the World. You will soon find out why.
Day 1-3 Esfahan | Culture
In Esfahan, probably the most majestic city of Iran, you will be and amazed by 17th century architectural beauty. It is a vibrant city with a young population who welcome Western visitors. Your hotel is located near the historical texture, at walking distance of “Naqshe Jahan” square which used to be a polo field during the Abbasiyan Dynasty. On each side of this magnificent plaza you can see a historical monument from the golden era of Shah Abbas. In the Grand Bazaar which is also located inside this plaza, you can enjoy local handicrafts do some souvenir shopping as you wish. In the evening Esfahani people like to stroll along Khaju or 33pol Bridge over the Zayanderood river.
