Isfahan

4.2

Half of the World

A cultural hub in the center of the country, Esfahan boasts a proud heritage of art, architecture, and craftsmanship. The atmospheric markets in the center of town offer sights of artisans at work in open-door studios, hand-painting tiles and camel bones, and knotting traditional carpets. The bustle of activity spills out onto the UNESCO-listed square, home to mosques, a palace, and a bazaar, all of which evoke memories of the city's time as the capital of Persia. The wealth of Persian gardens and finely decorated holy buildings in the town center give the city the feel of an open-air museum, with a multitude of places to see and admire during a holiday in Esfahan. Isfahan is in Isfahan Province. Plan how to spend your time in Isfahan and other destinations in Iran using our Iran road trip planner.

Where to stay in Isfahan

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.
