Wherever you look, Persia is a mix of past, present and future. Experience the bustling bazaars and see the changing colours of the folded ochre mountains, the purple pop of saffron fields and minaret-silhouetted skylines. Everywhere you go, you’ll encounter warm, welcoming faces; feasting in a restaurant, walking the dynamic streets or admiring the ornate ceilings in a mosque. Smells of spices and baking bread lie thick in the air, while girls sing, dance and weave. Iran is safe, friendly and warm; sharing tea in a Persian home is hospitality defined. It’s an all-sensory experience set to a soundscape of wailing prayer calls, rattling teacups and bubbling water-pipes. Go where life is alive.
