It is suggested you opt to visit 2 of the four sites mentioned here.
Visit the Golestan Palace
Built within the city's historic Safavid citadel, the Golestan Palace Complex was destroyed and rebuilt a number of times. The current structures were largely constructed under the Qajar Shahs, during the 19th century.
Set around carefully landscaped gardens, the buildings within the palace are beautifully decorated with colourful tile work and carved stone work. Fountains dot the gardens, lending to the tranquil atmosphere; at odds with busy Tehran.
One of the highlights of the complex is the Hall of Diamonds (Talar Almas), which contains intricate mirrored ceilings, decorative murals and striking paintings.
Visit the Crown Jewels
"Housed within Iran's National Bank, the National Jewels Museum of Iran represents centuries of accumulated treasures. Beginning with Safavids, Iran's subsequent ruling dynasties alternatively plundered and added to this outstanding collection of jewellery.
Whilst the highlight of the jewels - the famous Koh-i-Noor diamond - was lost to the British and remains safely ensconced in the Tower of London, many stunning treasures remain. Among these the pink Darya-ye Nur diamond, the emerald-encrusted Globe of Jewels and the Peacock Throne are particular highlights."
Visits include the Carpet & National Museums
Explore the city's Persian Carpet Museum, housing over 100 pieces from across Iran. These date back as far as the 17th century and showcase the different regional styles of each of Iran's provinces. Among the highlights is the unique 'Tree of Life with Kings and Notables' carpet.
Continue on to the National Museum, which showcases a collection of Persian artefacts. Housed in an attractive, French-designed building, this museum is packed with objects that reflect Iran's rich history. These include archaeological treasures from the ancient sites of Persepolis and Susa.
Visit to the Glass Museum
"Head to the beautifully housed Glass and Ceramics Museum, formerly the home of an aristocratic Persian family.
Inside, admire the impressive array of artifacts that fill the beautiful interior. Dating back to the second millennium BC, these are arranged in chronological order and encompass a number of different regions."
