Travellers to Persia have been raving about it since the time of Marco Polo. You definitely won't be disappointed by the beauty, architecture and history of Esfahan, Shiraz, Yasd and the ancient city of Persepolis.

While ancient monuments makes the trip worthwhile, it's the people and the way they adapted to cultures from so many civilisations that makes it memorable. It is neither East or West, ancient or modern but warm and friendly.
