Tomb of Saadi, Shiraz

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Pay your respects to the legendary Persian poet Saadi at Tomb of Saadi. Lush gardens surround the picturesque blue and white tomb, along with a few cafeterias out front selling traditional Iranian deserts, notably "shirazi faloodeh" and traditionally served ice cream known to be among the best in town. Inside, the tomb's walls have seven verses of Saadi’s poems etched into them, along with a small fish pond where locals stop to make a wish.
