Shiraz is a Persian city located in the south of Iran.

Shiraz is a great place to experience some of Iran's literature and poetry. As you explore the city, you will see and hear people reciting verses from Hafez and Rumi.

Shiraz is full of beautiful mosques, tombs, and bazaars, as well as parks. Many people, especially locals, have picnic at dusk at the parks near the arch, on the outskirts of town.
