It’s one of the most misunderstood destinations. Here are the most surprising things you’ll discover in Iran.

Laidback, graceful Esfahan is centred on Imam Square, one of the world's great ensembles of Islamic architecture.
A visit provides a fabulous showcase of Islamic architecture and a graceful urban sojourn that challenges your every assumption about Iran.
There is nothing to suggest Iran is unsafe but you will face further paperwork if you travel to the US.
A better option might be to fly Tashkent-Dubai with Uzbekistan Airways and Dubai-Tehran with Mahan Air.
We like to travel independently. Is a guided tour the only option when travelling in Iran?
