We have dedicated this day to giving you the ultimate Persian lifestyle experience.
In this experience, we learn how to draw with enamel in a professional workshop, then we have a guided city tour of Isfahan’s major attractions, and finally, we spend the night with a kind and hospitable Persian family.
We begin our day at the enamel workshop, where you’ll learn the ancient tricks of painting delicate patterns on copper. This unique style of painting has been passed down between generations for 5000 years, giving it a very rich cultural touch.
Next, we’ll explore the nooks and crannies of Isfahan. Unlike other guided tours, today we not only visit some major attractions, but we also immerse you in the actual texture of the city and the everyday life of its people. We’ll enjoy the scent of herb stores, the colors of the ancient mosques, and the energy of Isfahan’s famous bazaar.
For lunch, you’re invited to a purely Iranian home, where you’ll learn to cook age-old main dishes and desserts, wear the traditional garment of different Iranian locals, and listen to live Persian music, and maybe even learn to play the instruments yourself! We cap the night off with the dinner and deserts that YOU helped prepare.
