Description

We will meet at your accommodation in the morning after you have had your breakfast and leave the city towards Persepolis (1-hour driving).

We will visit Persepolis and I'll explain you everything about it, from the beginning when Darius the Great ordered to build Persepolis to about 150 years later when Alexander burned it.

During the tour, you will learn about all aspects of people and king's lives during the Achaemenid dynasty. I'll tell you how they built these amazing palaces and statues, about their ceremonies and festivals, their religion, and many more.

Then we go to a traditional restaurant where you can have lunch and rest to get ready to continue our journey.

After that, we will drive to Necropolis (10 minutes from Persepolis)
and visit the Naqsh-e Rostam (Necropolis) where tombs of the most powerful kings of the world are.

In the end, we will drive back to the city and visit the Quran Gate, one of the most famous attractions and symbols of Shiraz city, before dropping you off at your desired location.
