Iran is quite simply an extraordinary country, where visitors are welcomed with open arms by friendly people who have redefined the word ‘hospitality’. The architecture is amazing with breathtaking mosques, stepped hillside villages, cleverly-designed wind towers (Badgirs) and impressive structures such as the Zoroastrian Towers of Silence. The country’s history is astonishingly rich, and Ancient Persepolis is one of many staggering reminders of this past.

Tehran is the most populous city in Iran and Western Asia, and the 32nd capital city of Iran through its 5000 year old history.
In Tehran we will visit:
The magnificent Golestan Palace which is a world heritage site located in the south of Tehran right next to the bazar. Agha Mohammad Khan of the Qajar dynasty chose Tehran as his capital. The Golestan palace became the official residence of the Qajar dynasty. Almost this entire complex was built during the 131 year’s rule of the Qajar kings. These palaces were used for many different occasions such as coronations and other important celebrations.
Then we will visit Tehran Grand Bazar. Tehran Grand Bazar, which is the old economy heart of the city, is full of shops, mosques and banks. You can find anything you can think of besides fresh product. Despite relying heavily on this historical legacy, much of the bazaar itself was constructed much later. The walls and passages in the bazaar, rarely exceed 400 years, with many being constructed or rebuilt within the last 200 years. The bazaar grew as a “city within a city” for much of the 19th century, and was able to expand largely and without much outside interference.
The National Museum of Iran opened in 1937. The building was designed by a French architect, André Godard and even today is one of the most attractive modern buildings in Tehran.
Today we will fly to Isfahan.
In Isfahan we will start with the Chehel Sotun Palace, translated to Farsi means the 40-pillar palace. The palace itself only has 20 pillars, but because of the reflection of the pillars on the water it turns in to 40. Built by the order of shah Abbas II it is one of the 9 Persian gardens which is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Then we will visit:
Naqsh-e Jahan Square (Image of the World Square) is the most magnificent sight of Isfahan. A huge arena 510m long and 163m wide. Its the second largest historical square in the world and Housing some of the most majestic structures of the Islamic world, it’s designated by UNESCO as a universal heritage site.
Located in the eastern side of the square and built during the safavid empire the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque is one of the architectural masterpieces of Iranian architecture. The purpose of this mosque was for it to be private for the royal family for this reason the mosque does not have any minarets and is small.
The Ali Qapu Palace is located on the western side of the Square, opposite to Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque. It is forty-eight meters high and has six floors. The Ali Qapu generally is the entrance or supreme gate to the complex of palaces and public buildings of the Safavi Government.
The Shah Mosque is in the south side of the Square and is the largest and the most magnificent monument of the Safavid reign. It was built by the order of Shah Abbas. Unlike most buildings of importance in the Islamic period, this square did not lie in alignment with Mecca, so beside the entrance the rest of the mosque is built on an angle facing the house of God (Mecca).
Today we will take you to the IKIA airport hotel and we will visit Kashan on our way.
Kashan is the epitome of everything that is typically Persian, from it’s gardens, to it’s carpets, ceramics, and delicate textiles.
The Fin garden ranks among the finest traditional gardens in Iran. Tracing its history at least to the 5th millennium B.C. the fin garden was kept alive with never ending water from the soleimaniyeh spring perhaps as old as history itself. The garden contains numerous cypress trees and combines architectural features of the Safavid, Zandiyeh and Qajar periods.
The Borujerdi house is perhaps the most spectacular sight in Kashan. Built by a famous merchant of Kashan known as Brujeddi. Constructed in the 19th century the house was built because of love. When Mr. Borujerdi wanted to marry the daughter of Tabatabaie (one of the rich and famous merchants of Kashan) he said he wanted a house worthy of his daughter. The house is decorated with stucco, glass work, and mirror work, and it took 17 years to be built.
