The best time to visit Tehran
Tehran is accessible all year round, but the weather can be too harsh during the summer and winter. So, if you want to make the most of your trip, it’s best to visit between the months of March and May when the weather is pleasant enough for you to visit not only the city but also its neighboring towns. March is also the beginning of spring and “Nowruz” or the Iranian New Year, so you can really immerse in the city’s culture.
