WHAT TO DO IN TEHRAN

Most travelers tend to skip Tehran in favor of visiting more historical cities like Esfahan and Shiraz. Our advice to you is to take advantage of your stay in Tehran and visit the highlights of this amazing city, a metropolis that truly deserves the title of capital. Here is a list of just a few places you can visit that are near you in only two days:
  • Tehran Grand Bazaar
    • Located in the center of the city and a real labyrinth of thousands of shops. The Grand Bazaar offers endless picture opportunities and a chance to have chai (Persian tea) with locals and salesmen.
  • Golestan Palace
    • Located right next to the bazaar, this beautiful palace was home to the Qajar dynasty, which ruled the Persian Empire from 1785 to 1925.
  • Tabi’at (Nature) Bridge
    • Located not too far from the University is the Tabi’at Bridge, which translates to the “nature” bridge. It would be best to arrive just before the sunset to where you’ll be overlooking the Tehran skyline and its beautiful mountains in the background, also a great opportunity for pictures.
  • Darband
    • Located on the north of the city and the bottom of Mount Tochal, Darband is the beginning of a popular hiking trail that towers over Tehran. Many restaurants have placed their tables onto the river itself, and you can get some of the best Kababs in the city.
