Relaxation in the Persian Gulf

Iran

The summer heat, the crowd of tourists, the dust of the roads... All these are essential elements of the trip that you will compensate pleasantly by offering you a few days getaway on the most beautiful Iranian beaches. Unfortunately, this programme will not please couples, as access to the beaches is always separate for men and women. This is an opportunity to make solo discoveries!

Iranian Azerbaijan

Iran

In northwestern Iran, between the Caspian Sea and Turkey, there is a region around Tabriz that is mainly populated by Azeris, Turkish speakers who remained attached to Iran after the separation from Azerbaijan. The region is therefore very different from the rest of the country, but nevertheless has real tourist jewels. A good week is enough to go around, but you will find something to stay longer if you wish.

The best of Iran in 10 days

Iran
800€

Iran deserves and requires time to go around and fully appreciate its wealth. But why deprive yourself of it if you only have a short period of time? By being selective enough, about ten days can be enough to go around the "golden triangle": Esfahan-Chiraz-Yazd. To complete this itinerary on time, you will necessarily need to take a flight between Tehran and Shiraz.

Féerique weekend in Isfahan

Iran

Of all the cities of Iran, Isfahan is certainly one of the most cherished travellers. Quite rightly, because Isfahan does not steal its place in the catalogue of mankind's heritage. Colourful mosaic domes, covered bazaar, crafts, the warmth of the inhabitants, everything contributes to making it the most dazzling of the steps on your Iranian circuit. Here's how to optimize your visit and plan at best a prolonged weekend in the old safavide capital.
