Tehran is the capital city of Iran. A bustling metropolis of 15 million people, it is situated at the foot of the towering Alborz mountain range.

Tehran is a cosmopolitan city, with great museums, parks, restaurants, warm friendly people. It deserves at least a few days of your Iranian itinerary.

 

Get in By plane

There are no direct flights from North America or Australia, but there are flights direct from numerous European, African and Asian cities as well as cities in the Middle East. The primary international airport of Tehran is Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA). This airport located 30 kilometers south of the city and with the abundant taxis available is definitely the best way to get into Tehran.

Taxis are cheap and plentiful. A taxi to any destination in Tehran costs from 500,000 Rials.

 

Get around

Getting around traffic-clogged, sprawling Tehran is a true test of patience. While taxis are your best bet, they are pricier here than the rest of the country. A large local bus network will also take you almost anywhere you need to go, as long you can make sense of the routes and Persian line numbers. The true star of Tehran's transportation system however, is the brand new metro.

 

 

The Azadi Tower has been the longstanding symbol of Tehran. It was constructed to commemorate the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian Empire, combines elements of Sassanid and Islamic architecture.

Milad Tower, is one the symbols of Tehran as a multi-purpose tower. It’s the sixth tallest tower in the world and 26th tallest freestanding structure in the world, and it is visible from almost everywhere in Tehran.

Jamshidieh Park which is in the Niavaran district at the base of the Kolakchal Mountain, is one of the most picturesque and beautiful parks in Tehran.
