  • The entrance of the Bazaar in imam square is superb and the Interior in keeping with a mix of colors, scents and animation. The inhabitants of Isfahan throng in front of shops that offer the most varied objects; the food is also picturesque. He must walk, watch, listen... The rear of the Bazaar some shops, hard to find alone, serve as a tearoom for residents, where you can enjoy ice and excellent cakes sitting on comfortable cushions.

  • The square is already very big, the bus yozakku around the square, can only say bigger. Mostly Persian ceramics, and saffron and postcards. and see the exquisite decorations. Esfahan is a good place to buy carpets. Even a lot of small trafficking and Chinese. If you buy something, it's very recommended. It's worth it!!

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.
