Azadi Hotel

Day 02 TEHRAN – SHIRAZ
Having visited some parts of the old Tehran in the first day, we explore more affluent areas of the city. First, we visit the Carpet Museum where we see some finest carpets and rugs ever woven in Iran. Then, we go to the north of the city to visit Sa’dabad Palace, a vast green retreat for the last monarch of Iran and his family members. In the evening, we fly to Shiraz.

Zandiye Hotel

Day 03 SHIRAZ
Right After having breakfast, we drive to HAMADAN,the ancient capital of Medians (7th century BCE).

In the afternoon, we visit the unearthed remains of ancient Ecbatana, Alavian Tomb Tower, Tomb of Avicenna, the author of “Canon of Medicine” the most famous book in the Medicine world, and 2500 year old inscription of Ganjnameh.

Day 04 SHIRAZ
If we wish to learn about Achaemenid Empire (550-330 BCE), the best place to go is Persepolis, a world heritage site, where we can hear rich stories about the rise, flourish and demise of the first significant world empire. The huge columns, well-preserved bas-reliefs, huge griffins and gigantic tombs carved into cliffs are among the attractions of the Persepolis. Close to Persepolis there is a necropolis, Naqsh-e Rostam, which houses tombs of four Achaemenid Emperors carved into the cliff. In addition to the tombs, there are some bas-reliefs illustrating Sassanid kings and their glories, Naqsh-e Rajab (224-651CE).

Day 05 SHIRAZ – YAZD
We leave Shiraz in the morning to get to the YAZD, the bride of the desert. On our way we stop in Pasargadae, a pilgrimage center for most Iranians! Here, Cyrus the Great, the founder of Achaemenid Empire, the one who brought so much glory and pride for Persians is buried. The only significant thing left from the city of Pasargadae, the first capital of Achaemenids, is the tomb of Cyrus the Great. We also visit the Abarkouh Mosque en route.

Safaiye Hotel

Day 06 YAZD
Today, we explore the Old City of Yazd and the attractions in and around it. The 14th century Jame Mosque with its high portal and lofty minarets is the starting point of our tour. Having seen the mosque, we enter the old city where in addition to enjoying its amazing ambiance and architecture we visit shrines of Seyyed Rokneddin and Davazdah (Twelve) Imam as well as Alexander Prison. Water Museum and Amir Chaqmaq complex, Dowlatabad Garden, world heritage site,, and Zoroastrian sites including Yazd Fire Temple and Towers of Silence are the other places we visit.

Day 07 YAZD – ISFAHAN
ISFAHAN is our next main destination. To get to Isfahan we pass through two desert towns: MEYBOD and NAIN. In Meybod we visit a citadel, a caravanserai, traditional ice storage and a beautiful pigeon house (a sort of dovecote). In Nain, we experience traditional wool-weaving process, a 10th century Nain Mosque and the Ethnological Museum of Nain. Then we keep on driving to Isfahan!

Kowsar Hotel

Day 08 ISFAHAN
Compared to Shiraz and especially Yazd, Isfahan has more experience with tourists! Its heritage is unrivaled in Iran and even Islamic world. The old and architecturally stunning bridges of Si-o Se Pol and Khaju allow us to have an image of the 17th century Safavid era. This image will become whole after visiting Naqsh-e Jahan Square and the monumental buildings of Abbasi Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque and Ali Qapu Palace Pavilion on its sides. These monuments are connected to each other through a two-story covered bazaar. Chehel Sotoun Palace with its huge, lofty columns and beautiful paintings located close to the Naqsh-e Jahan Square is another site to visit today.

Day 09 ISFAHAN
Today, we have a half day city tour of Isfahan to visit, the 12th century Jame Mosque of Isfahan, known as the museum of Islamic art and architecture and the beautiful Vank Cathedral, a 17th century church in the Armenian Quarters. We are free in the afternoon to go shopping in Isfahan which deserves to be called Iranian city of handicrafts.

Day 10 ISFAHAN – TEHRAN
Our trip ends in Tehran. But, before reaching Tehran we have two destinations to see: ABYANEH, an ancient village with different lifestyle, unique customs and houses. KASHAN, the second stop, is a green, ancient town on the edge of desert. Here, we see the old houses of Tabatabai and Borujerdi, Sialk Tepe, and the beautiful Fin Gardens, a world heritage site. Close to Tehran we have a short stop at Imam Khomeini Mausoleum where the founder of Islamic Republic of Iran is buried. Then, we drive on to Tehran to fly back home.
