Persepolis Duration: Half a day (Morning or evening up to your request)
Remotely located in the mountains and hard to reach in ancient times, Persepolis, the ceremonial capital and masterpiece of the Persian Empire, is now only a pleasant drive away from the vibrant and historic city of Shiraz. Construction of this new capital began in 518 BC at the order of Darius the Great, and his successors added to its riches and splendor over the years.
The magnificent Necropolis is only a short distance from the glories of Persepolis, so consider visiting the tombs of the kings after we’ve explored the City of the Persians. This stunning ancient site contains four tombs carved into the rock face, at a great height. Four tombs, each originally containing the sarcophagus of an Achaemenid king, lie behind the cross-shaped entrance, high above the ground.
Here at Naqsh-e Rustam you can also admire the splendid Ka’ba-ye Zartosht (Cube of Zoroaster), a 5th century BCE Achaemenid square tower.
