Our journey begins from Tehran. In Tehran, you get a chance to see quite some magnificent palaces and their beautiful gardens which date back to Pahlavi kingdom. 
After exploring Tehran, you will head to Shiraz .  Shiraz, the city of Poetry and Literature and is the capital city of Fars province. Shiraz is home to the impressive Persepolis complex; a super glorious and historical construction from Achaemenid era. Seeing the grandeur of Persepolis, one wonders how those huge stone blocks are moved at that time and such magnificent constructions are erected.

Esfahan that was the capital city in Safavid dynasty might be the best part of this journey because of lots of diverse historical places such as Naqshe Jahan sq. and the mosques, palaces and bazaar around it and also beautiful Khajoo bridge and the stunning Vank cathedral.
