Iran

A mosaic of history from the empire of Cyrus the Great, to the great palaces of the Shah, from the myth of the holy Zarathustra to holy mosques of Islam. An area which boasts over 250 thousand archaeological sites open. A journey that does not end in the millennial history of the great empires of the East. It is surprising the nature for its strong contrasts: from the Kavir desert landscapes and Kahr Turan to the lush coral islands in the Persian Gulf.

The altitude can cause differences, but the dryness is the element that most characterizes this country, especially in the summer.

It is also notable the daily temperature range. On northern mountains the cold season is characterized by abundant rain and snow, while the eastern and southern regions are arid and infertile; the climate is continental in the plateau and on the coast is characterized by mild winters and hot summers. The best seasons for travel are spring and autumn. In Kish island the climate remains hot for 11 months a year, tempered by sea breezes (Months recommended: second half of July and early August).
