What’s the Best Time for Iran Culture Tours?
Iran covers a wide area of land that sees all four seasons, meaning tourists can visit Iran all year long. In each season, there are many regions that one may visit and enjoy weather that is suitable for a variety of activities. The main touristic cities of Iran include Tehran, Kashan, Isfahan, Yazd, Shiraz, and Kerman. These places have decent weather during spring and fall, making it the best time to visit Iran. However, during these high seasons, naturally, it’s more crowded than the rest of the year.
The cities by the south coastline of Iran and also the islands of Qeshm, Hormoz, Kish are extremely hot during summer. Therefore, the best time to visit this region is during fall and winter from September to March. The northern and northwest cities of Iran, such as Rasht, Anzali, Tabriz, and Ardebil, are very cold during fall and winter. Even though it could still be a memorable experience to visit them during that time, the best time to visit these regions is during spring and summer.

Six Iran city tours are fit into IranAmaze Iran travel agency destinations for Iran classic tours. These are chosen as the main tourist destinations in Iran. These cities contain UNESCO’s world heritage sites and also showcase a wide range of ethnic, culinary, and landscape diversity.
