Overview

Wander through the ancient ruins of Persepolis and discover the glory of the Persian empire

Buy a carpet at Esfahan’s bazaar

Watch the sun set over Zoroastrian ‘towers of silence’

Marvel at the view from Tehran’s Milad Tower

Read advice on tour operators, documentation and independent travel

Iran may not be at the top of your wish-list of destinations, but it’s worth thinking again. The country offers plenty to interest the discerning traveller: jewel-like gardens of the Bagh-e Eram in Shiraz, the troglodyte village of Kandovan and, perhaps surprisingly, ski slopes in the Alborz Mountains. Take time to explore the bazaars, visit museums and mosques, or take a break in a lively café and enjoy the friendliness and warmth of the Iranian people.

With expanded hotel and restaurant listings, and improved mapping, this fourth edition reveals the real Iran.
