History on the Walls of Persia

Travel ID: CT/12

The history is written on the walls of Iran. The impressive bas reliefs of Apadana Palace in Persepolis narrate the story of the Persian guard soldiers and the delegations bringing gifts to the Achaemenid king. And the reliefs in the Shapur City “Bishapur” show Shapur’s triple triumph over Rome. Khuzestan province bordering the Persian Gulf is “the birthplace of a nation”. Some of the main cities of Khuzestan are Andimeshk, Dezful, Shushtar, Susa, and Masjed Soleiman that each has a very ancient and unique history. You will visit a couple of important ports of Iran in the Persian Gulf on the Strait of Hormuz as well.
Then there is the city that has been registered as the world city of handicraft, the half of the world, Isfahan. When in Isfahan you can easily get the sense that this city was once the capital of the Safavid Dynasty by seeing the exquisite and rich architecture of the city, the blue-tile works, and beautiful domes and minarets of mosques.
In this journey, you will see the world’s most spectacular and peerless jewelry in the Tehran jewelry museum, and the world’s most unique wind catchers of the beautiful Yazd.
