Esfahan is Iran’s third largest city but number one tourist destination in the country due to the city’s abundance of boulevards brimming with maple trees, Persian gardens, bridges with majestic arches and grand Persian-Islamic architecture. Many artisans love to be in Esfahan as the city inspires them with its rich traditional Persian culture and picturesque scenery evident in the UNESCO central square, historical bazaars and the river and bridges.


This stunning city has been the highlight of my visit to Iran. Gorgeous and walkable. Everything you've heard about the architecturally sights is spot-on and the Iranian people are lovely.
