You’re a little tired, probably, and the sun is daunting now!  So, It’s better to relax in one of Shiraz’s cosy and beautiful cafés and maybe have a delicious light lunch.

16:00~19:00 – Eram Garden & Hafez Tomb

Eram is a true symbol of Persian gardens, with its numerous trees and flowers and water flowing everywhere. So, enjoy its peaceful atmosphere and treat yourself with some beautiful photos.

Now, it’s time to go to the Tomb of Hafez which is the best place to get a touch of Persian culture and poetry. You can also listen and watch many Iranians reading Hafez’s poems wholeheartedly.

19:00 ~21:00 – Dinner & Checking in your Hotel

It’s dinner time! We recommend you have your first dinner in Raaz Garden restaurant which is recognized among the top-10 restaurants in Shiraz by Trip advisor. After your delicious dinner, go to your hotel and have a good night’s sleep to wake up early tomorrow!

Day 2: Ancient Persia

08:00~19:00, Persepolis and Pasargadae

Wake up early and get ready to go to Marvdasht (located 62 km away from Shiraz) where magnificent Persepolis and Pasargadae are located. UNESCO has declared Persepolis (aka Takht-e-Jamshid) as a World Heritage Site in 1979. So, it’s a must-visit in this country and a true symbol of the ancient Persian empire.

19:00~20:30, Dinner

HaftKhan is the best restaurant in Shiraz, period. This is how a traveller describes it on Trip Advisor:

“Wonderful restaurant with wonderful food, the buffet section is highly recommended which there you can have Iranian and also some international dishes. There is 7 section in this restaurant, Buffet, Fast Food, Coffee Shop. Iranian Traditional, Barbeque, Classic, etc.”
