Treasures of Ancient Persia

To many Westerners the word “Persia” conjures evocative images of turquoise domes, exotic bazaars, the scent of roses and fabulous carpets. These images live on in today’s Iran. Indeed, this nation is a world both ancient and contemporary, linking the heartland of Asia and the cradle of Western civilization – a bridge between East and West.

Waves of invaders throughout the country's long history – the Greeks accompanying Alexander, Arab armies, the Turkish tribes that forced their way westward from Central Asia, and finally the Mongols – all left their mark upon the people of Persia, creating a vibrant tapestry that is indelibly Persian. During our trip we will see Shah Abbas’ astonishing royal city of Isfahan; the silent ruins of Persepolis, destroyed by Alexander’s fury over two millennia ago; the garden city of Shiraz; and the splendid desert city of Yazd.

Persia has been almost completely hidden from the West since 1979 when the country underwent huge changes with an uprising that marked the end of an era and a revolution whose effects are still felt today. The country and its people have emerged from these events eager to show the majesty of their country to the enterprising traveller. Past travellers have remarked with pleasure on the warm welcomes received throughout the country.
