Shiraz City Tour
Today you’ll enjoy lunch during your Shiraz city tour at a local restaurant we’ve selected for its delicious Persian cuisine and friendly ambiance. The Iranian people are gregarious by nature and some of your fellow diners, once they hear you speaking English, may ask: where are you from!
Many foreign visitors are surprised that the city itself has so few surviving historical monuments when there are such archaeological treasures in the neighboring countryside, but earthquakes over the centuries have taken a heavy toll. During your Shiraz tour, you'll see some of the most important sites with a local tourist guide.
At 9:00 AM from the hotel.
We will start Shiraz city tour from here. At first, you will visit by visiting Karim Khan Citadel. Built during the Zand Dynasty. Then you’ll have time to explore and shop in the bustling Vakil Bazaar, home to hundreds of stores, beautiful courtyards, and even an ancient caravanserai.
Next, up your Shiraz day tour is to visit Nasir-al-Mulk Mosque (Pink Mosque) few steps far from Vakil Bazaar. It built by the order from one of the lords of the Qajar Dynasty, Mirza Hasan ‘Ali Nasir-al-Mulk, it took 12 years to complete in 1888. Its interior reveals a magnificent masterpiece of design with stunning colors. This is a space where light and worship intertwine. The mosque comes to life with the sunrise and colors dance throughout the day like whirling dervishes. It reflects on the ground, walls, the arches, and the towering spires. It even reflects on the visitors as if a colorful ball is hit by the first sun ray and explodes to thousands of butterflies all around.
Also, we will visit Holy Shrine of Shah-e-Cheragh, during Shiraz day tour after having Persian food in a restaurant. Shah-e-Cheragh is the most important place of pilgrimage within the city of Shiraz. The tombs became celebrated pilgrimage centers in the 14th century End your Shiraz day tour on a tranquil note in the lovely garden tomb of Hafez, one of our most outstanding poets to feel the taste of Persian Literature. Hafez is one of the great poets who impressed everyone with his mastery.
