As one of Conde Naste's 'Top 10 Destinations to Watch in 2016', Iran's tourism stream has slowly but steadily been growing as the country has opened its arms to international visitors.
Inspired by the Persian Empire, this tour visits some of the most richly historical ancient cities of the silk road including Tehran, Kashan, Isfahan, Yazd, Zein-o-din, Persepolis, Shiraz, Tabriz and Kandovan. You'll visit the capital Tehran, surrounded by the staggering snow-capped peaks of the Alborz Mountains, giving you a glimpse into the future of modern Iran. Making your way south, the city of Isfahan is next on the itinerary, famed for its architecture of mosaiced domed mosques. You'll visit Persian gardens and desert landscapes in Kashan, spend the night in a caravanserai in Zein-o-din, see pre-Islamic Persian ruins in Persepolis, visit one of the most important cities in the medieval Islamic world, Shiraz, the Blue Mosque in Tabriz and a traditional Iranian village built inside a mountain.
