Decades of geopolitical quarrels have dealt a major blow to Iran’s reputation, but it cannot be denied that the country’s cultural legacy is one of the most fascinating on earth. The nation is a true delight for historiansPersepolis, an ancient city that served as the Achaemenid Empire’s capital roughly 2500 years ago, is just a short trip northeast from Shiraz, while the ancient city of Hamedan is still populated today. There’s a truly massive array of activities available throughout the country – visitors can go skiing in Dizin, sunbathe on white sand beaches in Hormozgan Province, and explore lush forests in Gilan Province, while captivating mosques and Zoroastrian temples can be found in abundance all throughout the nation. While visa requirements are a difficult hurdle to overcome, one can only hope that geopolitical tensions cool off in the future, allowing this enchanting nation to realize its full potential as a welcoming tourist destination.

In 1972 I was lucky enough to have a private tour of about ten cities in Iran / Persia.  Truly a beautiful country.
