It is known as the city of poets, literature, and flowers, so you know that visiting Shiraz will be an experience like no other. From its beautiful buildings to its lush gardens, you won’t be disappointed when visiting Shiraz during your trip to Iran.

For more than 2,000 years, Shiraz has been at the heart of Persian culture and it is where famous Persian poets Sa’di and Hafez are buried.

So, if you’re planning to visit Iran, make sure to book a stop in Shiraz.

Introducing Shiraz

 

The best experiences and tours in Shiraz

 

Make planning your trip to Shiraz a lot easier by booking one of these amazing tours:

 

  • Shiraz walking food tour: One of the best ways to experience the city’s culture is through its food, and the Shiraz walking food tour will give you just that. This tour is designed to take you to the best spots in the city to try local street food, Iranian pastry, and authentic Persian cuisine while also learning about the stories behind these dishes. 
  • Persian music experience: Since Shiraz is the capital of Persian culture, you can’t miss experiencing all the good things that it offers, especially through literature and music. In this tour, you’ll immerse yourself into the wonderful world of music and literature with locals reading beautiful poems, teaching you how to play Persian instruments, and allowing you to dance with them. 

 

The best things to see and do in Shiraz

 

Shiraz has no shortage of beautiful spots for you to see and experience. Here are our top recommendations:

 

  • Roam around Bagh-e Naranjestan:  It might be the smallest garden in Shiraz, but the Bagh-e Naranjestan is also its loveliest. Known for being part of a complex made for the richest Qajar-era families, this garden and its buildings are well preserved for tourists to experience.
  • Visit the Pars museum: This museum may not be the biggest or grandest that you’ll see, but you can’t miss visiting it whenever you’re in Shiraz. The Pars Museum was the first museum outside Tehran and it is home to at least 30 handwritten Qurans and a huge collection of paintings from different Persian artists. The pavilion and courtyard that surrounds it are also considered their own attractions.

 

The best time to visit Shiraz

 

Iran has four seasons and the summer and winter seasons here can be very harsh. So, if you want to explore Shiraz without worrying about the weather being too hot or cold, it’s best to book your trip during spring when daytime temperatures are not as hot and nights are a lot warmer. Spring is also when the flowers and plants in many of Shiraz’ gardens are in full bloom, so you can really appreciate their beauty.
