Top Things to Do in Esfahan, Iran

Once the seat of civilization.

This UNESCO Heritage-listed destination is a must visit because of its cultural and historical significance. Many Safavid era buildings surround it with different plants and flowers in between. The two mosques and the Ali Qapu Palace are its most distinguishable structures. The square has a local feel as you’ll see many locals coming and going, having a picnic, taking pictures, shopping at the nearby shops and dining at the restaurants and cafes. Return at night to see the buildings light up the night sky. The surrounding bazaar has many distinctly Persian products such as handcrafted rugs, clocks, bags, china and other similar items.
