Persepolis day tour
After breakfast, we hit the road towards Marvdasht and start Persepolis day tour. Renowned as the gem of Achaemenid (Persian) ensembles in the fields of architecture, urban planning, construction technology as well as art, Persepolis is located in a fertile plain 50 Km from Shiraz.
13-ha of monumental stairways, throne rooms (Apadana) and reception rooms, is the number one tourist destination in the country. While inspired by the Mesopotamian models, the architecture was to be indicative of its supremacy.
Taking rest while eating lunch at Apadana Hotel. Then we leave to visit Pasargadae, Cyrus, the great tomb. A vast plain of Morghab has the honor to hold the body of one of the most distinguished men in whole mankind history. About 135 Km from Shiraz, a humble yet majestic structure arises. Cyrus the great, founder of Achaemenid empire, has buried in the silence of this prosperous land renowned as Pasargadae.
