  • Day 1: Shiraz

    World Heritage Remains

    Shiraz is the ultimate destination for lovers of poetry, wine, art, and romance. An early drive towards the city gives you the time to visit its UNESCO World Heritage SitePersepolis. Even today some of its remains are kept in the Louvre Museum, but you get to see the real thing in its full glory! After visiting Naqsh-e Rostam, we’ll go to the main city, take a break, and prepare for a fun afternoon stroll. During our walk, we’ll check out Arg of Karim Khan.

    Note: This trip starts in Shiraz. Your transportation to Shiraz is not included.

  • Day 3: Yazd

    Delicate Tile Art

    To reach Yazd, you have a 4-hour drive ahead of you. So we suggest you make a stop at Kharānaq village for a short break. Here, Pir-e Sabz Chak Chak is a must-see. You can have lunch at the nearest city, Ardakan, where you’ll also have the chance to see Taghdiri Historical House, before continuing towards Yazd. After long hours on the road, we can spend the rest of the day leisurely exploringYazd’s old town, whose cycling experiences are to die for. But if you’re looking for a way to just relax, Dowlat Abad Garden will make for tranquil and romantic night.

    While in Yazd, we'll get some Qottab, the beloved bite-size sweet of the city, from the best confectionary in town. Today, we'll focus on the Zoroastrian Fire Temple and Amir Chakhmaq Complex. And since we're in Yazd, we'll take you to the most beautiful rooftop in town, so you can have the stunning view of the whole city under your feet. At the end of the day, if you're lucky, we'll treat you to a juicy camel burger. (May not always be available.)
