Exploring Isfahan, Isfahan, Iran (B)

After spending an incredible first day in Isfahan visiting the impressive Naqsh-e Jahan Square, for my second day, I would venture beyond the heart of the city to visit the second UNESCO World Heritage Site in Isfahan, the striking Jameh Mosque.

I continued exploring Ali Imam Square before ending my stay in Isfahan discovering the Armenian Quarter of New Julfa and its incredible Vank Cathedral, a big contrast to the predominantly Islamic architecture of Iran!

I reached Isfahan from Kashan with a private transfer organised by TAP Persia, which included a stop at the Fin Garden of Kashan and Abyaneh, a beautiful village located 87km south from Kashan. Check out my post from Kashan to Isfahan: Fin Garden & the red village of Abyaneh!

They offer all type of services that include guided tours and hotel, bus and flight reservations. They accept payments outside of Iran through PayPal, so they’re a great option to book your transportation. I used them for all my bus tickets as well as my flight from Shiraz back to Tehran and they’re very reliable. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
