What to see and do in Iran
If, for your next trip, you are looking for a destination with heritage and thousand-year-old traditions, with curious, open, welcoming and hospitable people, where you need to go beyond the clichés and where the freeness of spirit and understanding are necessary attractions, look no further: Iran is for you! Owing to a relatively negative image, following the historical events that have taken place, Iran is a country that is more and more unknown and infrequently visited. However, if the crowds knew what wonders were hiding, it would be the place to go! By virtue of its position between Mediterranean Europe and Asia, Iran is at the crossroads of several civilisations, which are found in all aspects of the country: architectural, culinary, cultural. You will be surprised by what you see in the cities like Teheran (the capital) and its archaeological museum, Shiraz with the mausoleum of Saadi and the garden of Eram or even the exceptional site of Naqsh-e Rostam, not far from Persepolis in the province of Fars. What more is there to say about Firouz-Adad than the superb ruins of the Temple of Fire of Ardachir or even Yazd, one of the oldest towns in the world where there still remains a small Zoroastrian community. Finally, one of the highlights of your stay will be the visit to the sublime religious town of Isfahan with its palaces, its mosques, its Armenian quarter: an unforgettable memory. So many cultural riches to discover on a tour of Iran!
