A fascinating country home to one of the world's oldest civilizations. With a 5,000 year history, world heritage sites on tap and modern cities where elaborate mosques, brilliant bazaars and a welcoming culture make Iran a charming destination. Be dazzled by the ancient cities near Ahwaz, amazed by the architectural delights of Isfahan, the ancient ruins of Persepolis and the mesmerising gardens and bazaars of Shiraz. These evocative names are long-enshrined in the history and legend of Central Asia.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
March to May and September to November have ideal temperatures for cultural trips in Iran. June to October are the summer months meaning the temperature rises, although it is warm, there is the advantage of fewer crowds at major sites. Avoid travelling during major cultural periods - the two weeks surrounding Nowruz, ten days prior to Ashura and the month of Ramadan.
