Let me tell you how awesome Shiraz really is. Shiraz is a historical, clean, fun, welcoming and friendly city. The food is great and the prices are fine. Make sure to reserve your accommodation in downtown, because most of the monuments are located there so you can save money and time. In spring, Shiraz changes into a fragrant and colorful heaven with a mild pleasant weather. So May to April and first days of June are the best times for exploring this city.
Most of the visitors prefer heading to Persepolis, Pasargadae and Necropolis on the first day. Anyway, these three heritage sites are the main reason of coming to Iran for many travelers! Because of being located 100 kilometers away from Shiraz, a visit to these three sites might take long until the afternoon so we suggest you to start your excursion early in the morning.
Stroll in the ancient remains of this Achaemenid city dating back to 515 B.C., you will not like to leave this UNESCO heritage site before exploring every inch of the wonderful reliefs, high columns, mythical statues and the glorious palaces.
