Shiraz was the eighteenth century capital of Persia. It is a city of parks and gardens, and it nestles between the mountains, in a valley full of orange groves and vineyards.

This is the home of the famous Shiraz grape. Unfortunately, since the Islamic Revolution, wine production has ceased and the vineyards have largely been abandoned.

City of Poets

Shiraz has always been famous for its scholars and it is an important university city today. It is also renowned for its arts and crafts. It was the home of the greatest Persian poets, Hafez and Sa'di.

Colourful Shiraz

Shiraz's eighteenth century Vakil Bazaar is a very colourful place, where you can see traditional craftsmen at work.
