Leave your accommodation in Shiraz for an exploration of the sophistication and grand artistry of Achaemenid Empire. Your first stop will be at the paradise of history lovers, the UNESCO-listed Persepolis (61 km). The majestic remains of the ceremonial capital of the great empire, to where guests from around the empire traveled to celebrate the new year, will make you fall deeper in love with ancient history.
To travel deeper into history, make your way toward Naqsh-e Rajab (around 7 km). After discovering the ancient reliefs, let Naqsh-e Rostam (around 3 km), the ancient necropolis (elaborate cemetery) cut into the high cliff, fascinate you with its elegant beauty.
To discover what has remained of the first capital of the ancient empire, have a 75-kilometer road trip toward Pasargadae (UNESCO heritage). In Pasargadae, checking out the hall, the citadel, the palace and the modest yet proud mausoleum of the tolerant ruler of such a great multicultural empire, the revered Cyrus the Great, will leave you astonished all the way back to Shiraz (140 km).
