Iran is vast and varied, where you’ll always be welcomed warmly to a local’s home, and to their glorious dinner table. Misunderstood on a global scale, but a hot spot for the intrepid traveller, Iran is ripe for exploration.
What to know before visiting Iran
What to wear, how to behave, how to stay safe and how to make the most of your trip. All straight forward, but important.
A city with no shiraz wine and an abundance of shirazi salad. Also beautiful mosques and history and whatnot.
Iran’s smokey capital is certainly full of character, if not colour. Palaces and gardens, street markets and kebabs, all you need.
Qom & Kashan
Smaller cities on the road between Isfahan and Tehran, deeply religious with the impressive mosques to match.
There’s only so many times that someone can tell you that ‘Isfahan is half the world’, but I’ll do it again anyway.
