There are also excellent exhibits from the 600 years of Arab control until the 13th century.We also visit the wonderful Golestan Palace to explore the a complex of 17 royal structures boasting stained glass windows, mirrored ceilings and marble thrones.Situated in high steppe-land, the legendary capital of Darius the Great was founded in 512 BC.
Typically you’ll be active and busy for part of the day but then also have time to rest and recharge your batteries.
Maximum group size ranges from between 6 to 20 people, depending on the type of trip, the transport and accommodation used and activities included.
From here we take a short walk to the Nasir al-Molk Mosque, a highlight of the trip.
The mosque has stained glass windows which, in the morning illuminate the room with a kaleidoscope of colours and just sitting in the corner in this ambient atmosphere has got to be good for one's soul. There are plenty of sites to discover, you may choose to visit Saadi's Tomb in the north-east of Shiraz or maybe enjoy the historic Eram Gardens.
Shiraz is known as the friendliest city in Iran, which in a country full of smiling happy people is some accolade!
