Iran is a country which combines sophistication with ancient treasures. Remerging as a destination for curious UK travellers in recent years, Iran is home to some of the best Islamic architecture in the world. Here bright blue domed mosques await the eyes of visitors, madrassahs and glittering shrines adorn every town and city, and ancient monuments and city ruins lie dotted throughout the country.

Visitors to Iran enjoy an unfailingly friendly welcome from the Iranians, and are treated to generous portions of the sumptuous cuisine, filled with spice blends and recipes perfectly refined over many generations.

Tehran may not be the cultural heart of the country but, filled with ornate palaces, stunning mosques, museums and bustling bazaars alongside trendy cafés and upmarket shopping malls, it’s a fantastic place in which to start any Iran holiday. Later, hop into a horse-drawn carriage and ride through Esfahan's graceful Imam Square with the sensational blue-tiled Masjed-e Imam, perhaps meander through the peaceful gardens of Shiraz and visit the tombs of great poets, or head into the desert to take in the ruins of nearby Persepolis, once a great city in the powerful Achaemenid Empire.
