Esfahan is considered as the center of historical masterpieces which are reflective of Islamic architecture from Safavid era. Discovering this city on foot across the famous bridges, around the UNESCO’s site of Naqsh-e Jahan Square with its beautiful mosques and through Esfahan traditional bazaar, are an outstanding examples of this architectural style.
