Tourism in Iran is diverse, providing a range of activities from hiking and skiing in the Alborz and Zagros mountains, to beach holidays by the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, but the main reason that tourists visit Iran is because of Iran’s Cultural and Historical and places such as Persepolis, Naghsh-e Rosta and more.
Hardly in need of any introduction, Persepolis is possibly Iran’s most famous of many ancient sites. From ancient Persia to modern Iran, from the Achaemenid Empire to the Sassanian era, from the Safavid period to the Qajar dynasty, and finally to the Pahlavi family and the Islamic Revolution, Iranian history is as stormy as it gets.
With so many historical places to visit in Iran, by traveling all around the country you can soak in every period and delve into the nation’s tangled past. After you enjoy your Persepolis tour, don’t forget to add to the list also other elegant and impressive sites in Iran such as Golestan Palace in Tehran, Ali Qapu Palace in Isfahan and the Fire Temple in Yazd.
Each province, city, and even village has their own distinct handicrafts. In Yazd, you will certainly be enticed by the beautiful handwoven silk and wool fabric called termeh, or by the freshly made baklava sweets. In Isfahan, tiles and blue chalices and plates could decorate your home or used to offer sweets to your guests with a Persian touch.
Tabriz, among other cities, is famous for its particular style of carpets of all sizes, colors, and patterns, as well as its nuts. Go to Hamedan for its colorful pottery or spend a day or two in Nishapur and admire its expertly hand-crafted turquoise stone jewelry.Share this tour
