Each season has a unique effect and role in the social life of people. For Iranians, the beginning of spring is celebrated as the New Year, which comes with the death of winter, affiliating human beings to the rebirth of nature. It's the most important celebration of Persian culture. This tradition goes back to the Zoroastrians, for whom Nowruz is far more than a feast, and is bestowed to the god "Ahura Mazda" and the day of marking the creation of the universe.According to mythology, Nowruz belongs to the first Iranian dynasty, Pishdadian Dynasty. It is the 4th king, the most favourite figure in ancient Persian times, Jamshid, considered as the greatest monarch the world had ever known. In the Persian tradition, king Jamshid had a large throne that only angels, and demons, were able to move. One day, he sat upon his jewel-studded throne and rose in the sky, astonishing all its subjects. On this day, which was the first day of spring, for the first time celebrated Nowruz, which means “New Day" .

What Iranians do during Nowruz ?

Many Iranians plan for these two weeks in advance. For most, it is their longest holiday of the year and they plan to make the most of it with their family and friends. What better time to visit other cities of Iran and sightsee their numerous historical sites?

Main famous tourist cities of the country (Like Isfahan, Shiraz, Yazd, Kashan, and …) become busy. Most hotels will get booked early. All public transportation will be full and all roads leading to these cities will be crowded with private cars. You may visit most sites with local tourists from other cities. In the end, this can make you give up on seeing some parts of it.

The only city that will do 180 and become quiet and peaceful is Tehran the Capital. Citizens of Tehran won’t take this time for granted. They usually plan a holiday for themselves. Despite this, most people from other cities prefer the cities mentioned above and won’t come to Tehran for the holidays. The streets are mostly with no traffic, sites and museums are likely to be empty, and the air is clear and mostly windy. If you wish to explore Tehran for some days, we highly recommend you travel at this time, but if you want to visit other cities or plan to visit Iran for the first time, you may see Iranians a lot on the Classic route. Iran is always a good idea. Don't hesitate and book your tour to Iran now.

Saadi is a poet, philosopher, and mystic who is known as the founder of alternative tourism. He traveled to different countries and cities about seven centuries ago. Then he collected all his experiences in verse and rhyme prose in two books named Boustan and Golestan. These two books give you lots of inspiration and information.

Day 02 : Persepolis and Necropolis and Yazd City

Sightseeing: Persepolis and Necropolis

In the morning, we first pay a visit to a UNESCO World heritage site ,Persepolis. Founded by Darius I in 518 B.C., Persepolis was the capital of the Achaemenid Empire. It was built on an immense half-artificial, half-natural terrace, where the king of kings created an impressive palace complex inspired by Mesopotamian models. The importance and quality of the monumental ruins make it a unique archaeological site. It seems that Darius planned this impressive complex of palaces not only as the seat of government but also, and primarily, as a showplace and a spectacular center for the receptions and festivals of the Achaemenid kings and their empire such as Nowruz. The second place we stop by is Necropolis. Opposite Mount Rahmat, ten minutes to the north, proudly stands the Necropolis, the magnificent burial place of Achaemenid kings. The site also provides seven bas-reliefs dating back to Elamite and Sassanid periods. Stay overnight in Yazd.

Whether the deep well in the middle of its courtyard was built by Alexander the Great and used as a dungeon seems doubtful, no matter what the guide says. The building is worth a look for the small display on the old city of Yazd, but mostly the fee covers access to a warren of craft workshops. We move on to the Tomb of the 12 Imams; the early-11th-century brick Tomb forming one side of Zaiee Sq. in the heart of Yazd's historic old city. The once-fine, but now badly deteriorated inscriptions inside bear the names of the Shiite Imams, though none are buried here. The tomb was closed at the time of writing.
