Journey Along the Silk Road – Iran

Traverse the ancient trading thoroughfare of the Silk Road and discover the historical and cultural legacy of ancient Persia in Tehran, Tabriz, Isfahan, Yazd and Shiraz.

Navigate the Silk Road, the lifeblood of trade between the European empires of the west and the Far East. Be mesmerised by the riches of modern day Iran, from the enchanted mosques of Shiraz to the monuments of the Safavid capital of Isfahan. Whilst the great Persian centres and trading hubs may no longer mark out this thoroughfare, the legacy lives on in the distinct culture, art and aesthetic of today’s Iran.
