From that time you will find many impressive buildings like the Sio Se bridge and the Ali Qapu palace at the largest city square in the world, originally designed as a polo field!

From Isfahan we travel by car with driver guide in direction of Shiraz. Particular attention should be paid to choose the beautiful mountain route to Yasuj, a town in the Zagros mountain known as a habitat of the Bakhtiari and Qashqai (nomad) population.
