This travel itinerary is proper for Iran first timers who would like to have a cultural-historical exploration alongside a visit to the main highlight of Iran in a short period of time. On this journey you will visit 7 of Iran’s important UNESCO world heritage sites alongside a few highlighted sites which are on the list of UNESCO tentative site (11 attractions). The travel plan designed for this trip is the famous Iran Classic Travel Route which starts from Tehran Capital to the south and ends in Shiraz city. The tour covers roughly 1400 to 1500 kilometers including urban sightseeing. The tour in general takes 9 days, starting from Tehran to the south, visiting Kashan, Esfahan, Najin, Meybod, Yazd, Persepolis and finally Shiraz . From there you will fly to Tehran to catch you flight back home from IKA international airport. You will be staying in standard hotels and your English speaking guide takes you to explore the most important sites of mentioned cities. For those who are interested in getting in touch with locals we have considered a walking tour through the main spots of each city to see the local night life and an acquaintance with Persian culture and their brand of hospitality.
- As the tour has no physical activities, you can travel all year round but the best travel time recommended by us is after April 5th till the end of May and from end of September till the end of November.
- We don’t recommend traveling from 20th of March to 5th of April as it’s the long holiday of Persian New Year in Iran.
- If you can extend your trip to more than 9 days and are interested in the same taste of Iranian culture and history, Please check tour code 192: Iran Classic Route in 12 days or 193: Ancient Persia and Modern Iran in two weeks (14 Days)
- You can also arrange you return flight from Shiraz on the evening of the 8th day to make your trip shorter and more compatible with your needs.
