Many people in the world know Iran through the enduring fame of
Shiraz, its ancient capital. Shiraz is among the top three most visited cities
in Iran. The deluge of tourists especially in early spring when the scent of
orange blossoms permeates Shiraz and its surroundings, calls for large-scale
accommodation and the city is well prepared for this challenge. The diversity of
lodging centers in Shiraz is absolutely stunning and fancy five stars hotels,
great apartment hotels and a host of hostels and guesthouses guaranty a
memorable and joyful trip to Iran’s capital of art and poesy. Thus, Shiraz has
something to offer to every preference. If you are accustomed to reside in
luxury lodgings, Shiraz hotels will serve you the
best. If expensive accommodation isn’t your thing, the traditional guesthouses
will welcome you with their modest but delightful services in Shiraz. Finally,
if you crave for a compromise (privacy of hotels but for a lower price), Shiraz hostels are just what you are looking for. Once again you have many
choices but here we present one of the finest historic houses of the city,
Seven Hostel in
Shiraz. Seven Hostel is ideal for the travelers to Shiraz who need cheap but quality
hotels and the great thing about this hostel is that you may book a room online before
commencing your journey. Our Shiraz hostel is great in so many levels;
a well-equipped historic mansion with everything imaginable in a nice residence
(fully furnished kitchen, living room and bedrooms) and much more for half the
price of a single room in a fancy hotel. As with all quality hotels and
guesthouses during the peak of tourist season in Shiraz, Seven hostel
is fully booked and if you intend to reside there, we suggest you make
reservations at least 10 days before your trip.
There are many different Shiraz tours in and around the city. The most popular
of these tours are Shiraz sightseeing tours and Persepolis tours. The great
number of tourist destinations in Shiraz have made our Shiraz sightseeing tours
immensely popular among tourists. Add the grandeur of Persepolis and Necropolis
to the list and Shiraz becomes not only a must-see city in Iran but in the whole
world. Our Persepolis tour packages just like our Shiraz sightseeing tours are
all daily tours and the adventure to this once capital of the world of course
starts from the city of Shiraz. We spend a full day among the ruins of the ancient world.
Men with gilded long beards, mythological figures of bulls, eagles and ferocious
lions with ireful eyes looking back at the enemies of ancient Persians have one
thing in common irrespective of their shapes: a human factor which is almost too
human in its representation of eternal agony of the mundane world and the lost
glory of the time past. But Persepolis is just a part of our Shiraz day tour. The next
spot we will visit is Naghsh-e Rostam (also known as Necropolis), the resting
place of four Archimedes kings carved into the heart of a formidable rock. While
immersing in the magnificence of these edifices, one momentarily loses the sense
of time and space and ponders the one and only riddle of the world; what is the
purpose of existence and gaining power if those at the hiatus of power are now
nothing but images on stone.
