Hey there We were there for a month, about five years ago. It really is an absolutely wonderful place to travel - amazing sites, incredibly friendly people. Truly one of my favourite places that I've travelled to. During that month, we went from Tehran to Esfahan, Shiraz, Persepolis, Yazd, Zanjan, Qazvin and Kashan. Was really easy and very cheap to get around by bus or train. Please feel free to email me any questions that you might have, would be more than happy to help out if I can. Cheers Simon
