Highlights of a Free Tour in Tehran

Tehran is considered the most liberal city in Iran and younger generations flock from all over the country for acceptance and education. Though settlement in the area dates back over 7,000 years, Tehran itself was demolished and rebuilt from scratch in the 1920s so has little to offer in ancient architecture, but it makes up for that with its fantastic museums, galleries, restaurants, cafés and walking trails. Highlights on a Tehran Free Walking Tour include the National Museum, Golestan Palace, the Grand Bazaar, the Azadi Monument, Milad Tower and Saad Abad Complex. Probably the biggest tourist trawler in the city is the Treasury of National Jewels. Accessed through the front doors of the central bank, it houses jaw-dropping examples of jewelry belonging to former royalty now serving as a reserve for the national currency. You shouldn’t miss Imamzadeh Saleh Shrine, which is one of the oldest and most famous, dating back to the early 13th century.

Things to Do in Tehran

Tehran’s turbulent past has shaped the city as seen today; but locals are incredibly welcoming to foreigners, food is mouth-watering, the cityscape absolutely worth exploring, and activities to do are countless. For a shopping experience like no other, take a deep breath and delve into the labyrinthine Tehran Bazar. There are over 10 km of lanes here and the stalls selling everything you can possibly imagine are broken up by banks, mosques and even a fire station. You will get lost here, but the locals are friendly and can point you in the right direction, as long as you buy something! Escape the smog of the city for a day-trip to Darakeh & Darband, walking trails at the foothills of the Alborz Mountains. Dotted with teahouses and stalls, it makes for a relaxing retreat, passing by waterfalls and streams on the way up the hills. There is also a well-priced ski-lift on Darband.
