Iran Masterpieces Tour 4 days. This is a short tour that combines ancient Persia and modern Iran. You will visit two of the oldest cities in Iran as well as two of its bustling and cosmopolitan urban towns. Shiraz and Isfahan have a lot to offer, from the ruins of Persepolis to the Vank cathedral in Isfahan, not to mention

Zayandeh Rood river in Isfahan and beautiful gardens of Shiraz. Both cities also have traditional bazaars very close to their modern shopping malls.


  • Our routes have been carefully chosen to include the best night stops and highlights. However, as local and operational conditions may vary and unforeseen circumstances can arise, the following itinerary should be used as a guideline.

Day 1

Arrival in Shiraz

When you arrive in Shiraz our driver will be waiting for you at the airport to welcome and transfer you to the hotel. Depending on your arrival time, the hotel will host a delicious breakfast for you.
Day 2

Shiraz

Your Shiraz tour starts with Nasir Al Molk Mosque, the perfect place to capture the integration of lights and colors. Then you will visit one of our historical artistic houses, Naranjestan (Qavam House), from late 1880. The next stop is a 450-year-old religious school, Madreseye Khan, where students learned metaphysics courses along with religious lessons. After that, you will walk through the Bazar and Saraye Moshir, where you can see the traditional old stores and markets with their stunning decoration and architecture from the 11th century. It’s the center of Shiraz’s handcrafts such as khatam, spices, termeh, gilim and jewelry. You continue your tour with Vakil’s bath (Hammam e Vakil). It is interesting to know that this bath had a dentist office, a barbershop, and a massage place! On the eastern side of the hammam, Karim Khan Zand built a mosque which has only two balconies in spite of other mosques that have four ones. The court of the mosque is decorated with the typical Shiraz’s seven-color tiles from the 18th century. Your next destination will be The Arg e, Karim Khan. It was a citadel where Karim Khan Zand lived. The materials which the castle was built by were finely chosen from other cities and the construction of the citadel took just a few years. In the afternoon, you visit the Eram Garden. Eram is the word synonymous for “heaven” in Farsi. It’s a garden with a wide variety of plants and gorgeous architecture. The next stop is the Hafez tomb. Hafez was one of the great poets of Iran who has a Divan (book) of poems that describes his love story and biography. Then we go to Saadi’s tomb. Saadi was also a great poet of Iran who lived a decade before Hafez. He has been imitated by Iranian poets for almost 400 years! Your first day will end by visiting the Ali Ibn e Hamzeh shrine which is a small shrine, but it has a breathtaking interior design with mirror tiles covering the entire wall and domed ceiling.
Day 3

Shiraz-Isfahan

While you are on the road from Shiraz to Isfahan, you will stop at Persepolis. Persepolis was the seat of the Achaemenid King, though it was designed primarily to be a showplace and spectacular center for the receptions and festivals of the kings and their empire. After Persepolis, we go to Naqsh e Rostam. Naghsh e Rostam is a group of tombs built in the surface of the cliff. 2000 years ago people brought carving tools at the height of 10 to 15 meters and made the Naghsh e Rostam figures. Depending on the time, we may also be able to visit Pasargadae, the tomb of Cyrus The Great. After getting to Isfahan we will visit two historical attractions, the Khadju and the Si o Se Pol bridges which have a great view of Isfahan’s main river, the Zayanderud. You will enjoy the hotel room at the end of the day.
Day 4

Isfahan

On the last day, you will explore the best of Isfahan. The day starts with one of the best sites in all of Iran, a World Heritage Site, Naqsh-e Jahan square (pattern of the world). It is the beating heart of Isfahan and is so large that you can ride a horse drawn carriage around it. On the western side of the square, you can see Ali Qapu Palace (great gate). This magnificent palace has six floors and there is a music hall in the highest one with plaster-work decorations. On the south side of the square, you will see (Shah’s Mosque) Masjed Jame Abbasi which is decorated with marble and seven color tiles from 400 years ago. Opposite to Ali Qapu palace we have Sheikh Lutfallah Mosque which was a royal mosque during the reign of Shah Abbas the Great. It took 17 years to build. Also there is a bazaar in the square area which is the best place to buy Isfahan’s hand crafts like: silver work, Mina Kari bowls (engraving on metal), Khatam jewelry boxes and types of sweetmeats, such as ‘Gaz ‘and ‘Souhan’. After the Naghsh e Jahan square you will go to Chehel Sotoun (40 pillars or columns) Palace. Either you will enjoy the ceramics, miniatures and frescoes inside the building or you can walk around and relax at the traditional tea house on a corner of the garden and have some tea. The next destination is the Vank Cathedral located in the district of Jolfa. It’s not just a regular cathedral because it has mixed Islamic style and architecture which makes it so unique. The most significant part is the interior decorating with fine frescos, tile work and gilded carvings. The blue and gold painted central dome has pictures of a Biblical story which is about the creation of the world and man's expulsion from Eden. Moreover, you will learn many facts about Armenian genocide. And the final site to finish your journey in Iran is the Hasht-Behesht (8 paradises) palace, it’s the only royal villa or mansion from the Safavid era that exists today! Although it is not a huge palace, it has some fascinating detail like amazing painting and design. For instance, large wooden columns, which were not very common in Iranian architecture at that time. By the end of the day our driver will transport you to the airport for your departure flight. We wish you a nice flight and hope to see you again.
