You will have the opportunity to discover some magnificent cities during your tour through ancient Persia. Isfahan is home to a number of stunning mosques, with beautiful mosaic decorations. The Sheikh Lotf Allah Mosque, found on the colossal Naqsh-e Jahan Square, is an absolute masterpiece. Another city you will visit is Shiraz, capital of Fars. Shiraz has a lovely atmosphere and is a great place to take a walk in one of the leafy parks and follow with a cup of sweet black tea in one of the friendly tea houses. From Shiraz you can take an optional excursion to see the remains of the palatial city of Persepolis where the wonderfully carved statues breathe life into the ancient Persian Empire!
The landscapes of Iran are also spectacular and wide ranging. During your Iran tour you can take a camel ride through the Bafq desert, visit the Varzaneh salt lake and climb to the top of a sand dune to watch the sun go down.
