The days when Tabriz was one of the most important commercial centers along the ancient Silk Road. It’s a wonderful place to chat with engaging merchants and browse for jewelry, carpets, and spices. Later we take you to the airport in Tabriz for your included flight to Tehran and transfer to hotel.
