    Bazaar of Isfahan bazaar of Isfahan, built in the 17TH century, and one of the largest and ancient Iran is one of the most fascinating places of the city, is located around the great plaza of the Iman Khomeini, a place full of a myriad of gateways in one full of Persian-style columns and vaults construction; a place not to miss when visiting this city, there among thousands of shops, full of smells, colors, flavors and textures, you can one stop full hours to enjoy all the beautiful and finely made items made by Iranian hands. You can find everything he corruptly take memories of Iran, and at very good prices, was one of the places that I liked my visit to this beautiful city in the bazaar of Isfahan.

    One of the easiest to navigate, allows an excellent visit not only, but also of sites of great value. Great guides report routes of various kinds rather simple to follow. Always to bear in mind, that the places to eat or drink are easily subject to change. It's a nice Bazaar also architecturally. Unfortunately here also begins to be a presence of objects and clothes that have nothing to do with the country. It would be desirable if the Iran gave precedence to their much higher value products! Don't miss the wonderful copper processing. Miss: it is always a great way to make great discoveries.

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.
