  • Like all Middle Eastern Bazaar, this is also a doom. We get lost in the labyrinth, in the alleys, admiring many beauties. Most of the goods are unique, typical of Iran. The prices attractive and the advantage comes from sellers are not sticky and insistent. Inside the Bazaar also has a lot to eat in small restaurants and coffee shops. It's nice to dispense at least 2 hours here.

  • Starting from the Place Royale, a portal announces the entrance of the royal Bazaar: on its pediment you will notice 2 Sagittarians ceramic facing because Isfahan receives, according to tradition the positive influence of this sign. This mess is very rich of shops, workshops but also of madrasas, mosques, hammams where his economic, cultural importance and spirituelle.il is beautiful.

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
