We spent a couple of night in Tehran when we first arrived in Iran, and again after a 14-day tour of the rest of the country.
We found Tehran to be noisy, busy and vibrant. From where we were based, most of the main tourist attractions were within walking distance, or you could take a cab or the metro. Both were cheap and efficient.
