DON’T GET MAD, GET NOMAD!
Check-in to your hotel in the morning followed by time to explore Tehran.
KASHAN / NATANZ / ISFAHAN
A full days drive takes us via historical towns of Kashan and Natanz before we reach Isfahan. • Fin Garden (UNESCO Site) • Khan-e Borujedi
Isfahan is a place for savouring the high refinements of Persian culture and getting lost in its old bazaar. • Imam Square (UNESCO Site) • Ali Qapu Palace & Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque • Chehel Sotun Palace (UNESCO Site) • Vank Cathedral Museum • Zayandeh River Bridges (Si-o-seh & Khaju Bridges)
BAKHTIARI NOMAD REGION / SHAHR-E KORD
At an elevation of 2061m Shahr-e kord is nestled between two mountain ranges and is really off the beaten track. An ideal way of meeting the local nomadic people of the region. • Bakhtiari Nomad village visit • Atabakan mosque • Imamzadeh Khatoon
The area of Yasuj has been settled since the early Bronze Age and is the place where Alexander III of Macedon stormed the Persian gates and fought their way into the Persian heartland.
QASHQAI NOMAD REGION / SHIRAZ
On our way to Shiraz we stop to visit a Qashqai settlement. These nomads are Iran’s largest group of nomadic pastoralists who travel with their flocks each year. • Qashqai Nomad village visit
PERSEPOLIS AND SHIRAZ
We will spend the day discovering the spectacular site of Persepolis and surrounding rock tombs. • Half day tour of Persepolis Complex (UNESCO Site) • Rock tombs of Naqsh-e Rajab & Naqsh-e Rostam
FIRUZ ABAD / SHIRAZ
Another excursion outside of Shiraz takes us to ancient city of Firuz Abad. Built in the 3rd century BC by the founder of the Sassanian Empire but today a Qasqai farming town, there are still a few remains of the old ruins to explore. • Karim Khan Citadel • Vakil Mosque & Bazzar • Ardashir’s Palace • Qashqai Nomad village visit
