A different route with different theme. After years of travelling around Iran, I suggest you to stay away from classic route and find out something beyond the visit of tourist destinations!
Shiraz and Persepolis as great capital of Achaemenid, Susa, one of the oldest cities of the world, capital of several kingdoms, Pasargadae, the capital of Cyrus the Great, Esfahan, Safavids capital and Hamedan, capital of Medes and Persians. . .

Let's step in the cities which in ancient times caught the attention of the Kings to make them as capitals of their kingdoms and what left from them today. . .
