It was truly love at first sight on our first visit to Yazd. Be it wandering around the old town, experiencing the famous Persian hospitality to late night koshti (Iranian wrestling). The highlight of our trip.

Beatiful old town, just as I imagined for such a city in the desert. Great sunset views in quite a few rooftop cafes. In the end of May it's too hot to walk there in the middle of the day, therefore you can explore it...More

I really love this city and especially the old town. It's really kept unchanged during the years likely the time is stopped there!
