Searching for Iran’s most attractive visiting sights? You have come to the best website. In this article, I’m going to introduce the top 20 most important cities of Iran in the Iran tourism industry that attract many native and foreigner tourists yearly. Some of these cities have historical importance, some natural importance, and some religious. Let’s get to know these cities a little bit deeper and then you can decide which ones you want to visit.

1- The capital of Iran Tehran

Experience all the luxurious recreations at our capital, Tehran. In Tehran, you can taste an Ice-cream made of gold at a tower 435 meters high and rest at a five-star hotel with the highest quality services.  

2- The Safavid legacy, Isfahan

Isfahan is unique in terms of architecture. You can visit the Islamic Iranian architecture at every Safavid palace or mosque in this city. If you decided to go to Isfahan in your Iran visit, pay a visit to Vank cathedral, where you can witness the most little bible in the world.

3- The city of poetry, Shiraz

There is a reason Shiraz is named the city of poetry. This city was the Birthplace of great poets such as Hafez and Saa’di. The best visiting site of Shiraz in my idea is the Hafez tomb. With a great vibe, Hafez's tomb amazes all the visitors.

4- The historic city of Yazd (UNESCO World Heritage site)

At the historic city of Yazd, you can witness the highest wind catcher in the world and a heavenly beautiful Persian garden. This city is also famous for having the most houses built only with adobe in the whole world.

5- Kashan, the city of beauties

If you ask me, the most beautiful sight in Kashan after Fin Garden is the gorgeous house of one of the richest families in Iran, the Tabatabai house. After Tabatabei's house, I recommend visiting the Boroujerdi house too. 

6- Visit the mausoleum of the eighth Shia Imam in Mashhad

Many know Mashhad for its Religious importance and the millions of pilgrims traveling to this city to visit the mausoleum of the eighth Shia Imam, but this city is also one of the best luxury destinations in Iran.

9- Take a look at a unique architecture in Abyaneh

Abyaneh is also unique in terms of Architecture. This heavenly beautiful village is still unknown to many foreigners due to the lack of management. Abyane is made such a way that the rood of a house is the garden of another house. Make sure to pay a visit to this magical city on your Iran trip.

10- Travel 2500 years back in time in Pasargadae

I don’t think there would be anyone in this world who hasn’t heard the name of the King of the kings, Cyrus the Great. In Pasargadaeو you can walk where he walked and visit his main castle. Don’t forget to pay your respect to him when you visit this great man’s tomb.
