Shiraz holidays

Shiraz is the capital of the Fars province of Iran and lies about 935km south of Tehran. The city’s altitude is 1,600 metres with a very pleasant climate and mild winters. Shiraz is a must on the travellers list as it boasts numerous sites of interest such as the tombs of Saadi and Hafez who were each considered the greatest poets of their time. The populous quarters in the centre of Shiraz are busy trading areas. The picturesque quality of the Iranian bazaar is enhanced here by the presence of nomads or semi-nomads belonging to southern Iranian tribes.
