We offer a truly special view of our country. Enjoy interacting with local people and visiting no fewer than eleven UNESCO World Heritage Sites!
Included in our 16-day itinerary are Bisotun, where an enormous multilingual inscription was carved into a cliff face by Darius the Great in the 5th century B.C., the Biblical city of Susa, the ziggurat at Chogha Zanbil, built about 1250 BC, Shushtar’s 2,500-year-old Hydraulic System, Isfahan’s Jameh Mosque, and Meidan Imam, or public square; Tehran’s sparkling Golestan Palace, with ornamented walls made of colored mirrors; Pasargadae, the capital of the Achaemenid Empire under Cyrus the Great; The Persian Qanat, a unique water control system; several of The Persian Gardens; and, of course, Persepolis, an amazing testament to ancient international relations. The echoes of the ancient world are ever present in modern-day Iran. Not only is it the home of millennia-old monuments but also striking works of art which include intricate carpets, fine ceramics, ornate miniatures, and spectacular metal work!
