Day 1: Tehran
Welcome to Tehran! From the Shah to the Jazz, today we’re leaving no stone unturned. Let’s begin this trip at Golestan Palace and shake hands with Iran’s most iconic kings; from the Qajar ones to the Pahlavi Shah. Our next two stops are the National Museum of Iran and the Treasury of National Jewels. Following that, we’ll take selfies with THE Azadi Tower herself. Then we’ll have a tea break in the smallest cafe in the world at Tehran Grand Bazaar. For dinner, we’ll go where the cool kids hang out, at a Rock Cafe or a Jazz Café.
Day 2: Tehran
Nightlife and Local Picnics
Let’s head north! Today we’ll once again admire the Pahlavi family’s lavish life; this time in their summer house and garden. We’ll visit Sa'dabad Complex and Niavaran Palace, where the royal family’s everyday items are kept. We’ll have a stroll in their big gardens and visit a couple of the art museums in the complex. This evening, we’ll go to Ab-o-Atash Park to see its musical fountains. We’ll cross the beautiful Tabiat Bridge to take selfies with the fantastic view of the shiney Tehran. Finally, we’re going to picnic with the locals in Taleghani Forest Park.
Day 3: Kashan
Dry Deserts, Historical Houses, Lush Gardens
Rise and shine early morning, because en route to Kashan we’ll take you to see the impossible: the Shrine of Emam Khomeini. Then we'll get the original Kashan Sohan (a saffron toffee) to snack on throughout the trip. Once in Kashan, we’re going to visit the Fin Garden, the shining star of all Persian gardens. We’ll also take you to see the most beautiful and charming historical houses in Iran, and while we’re there, we’ll visit the ancient Yakhchāl (coolers) of Jalali Castle. After a delicious lunch, we’ll head to the gorgeous Agha Bozorg Mosque and its grand theological school.
Day 4: Isfahan
Christianity, Music, and Nightlife
Once we reach Isfahan, we’ll go to Naqshe Jahan Square and up a terrace with the same view of the square as the one in the brochure pictures. Then, one by one we’ll visit its iconic landmarks including Shah Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, and Ali Qapu Palace. And while we explore the Grand Bazaar, you get to visit a handicraft workshop in person. Tonight, we’ll have a leisurely stroll and a delicious dinner at a cheerful restaurant near Si-o-se-pol or Khaju Bridge.
