National Garden and 30 Tir Street
Walk to National Garden and visit cobble stone passages and then to 30 Tir street. Though being brimmed with cultural features, the street had lost its heyday’s hustle and bustle. In spite of being located in the heart of Tehran’s old district and as a result lined with museums and culturally remarkable landscapes, it wasn’t until recently that 30 Tir street became one of locals’ favorite hangout spots. It boomed once again and become Iran’s first food street. you can order your food and take rest on the chair and tables before each stork.
National Museum of Iran
After lunch we visit National museum of Iran. The most precious one, not only in Tehran but in Iran, is National museum of Iran. Aging more than 70 years, it is not only the largest museum of History and Archaeology of the country, but ranks as one of the few most prestigious museums of the world in regard to grand volume, diversity and quality of its huge monuments.
