When to Visit

Yazd is a city located at the centre of Persia desert area, so to feel comfortable and enjoy most of the attractions spring, autumn and winter are highly recommended as a touristic period of Yazd. It mostly marks as gentle weather since the beginning of March to the end of April and suitable for tourists since the end of September to the end of December.

How to Visit

Yazd itself as a Unesco World Heritage takes long walks to discover, not only the tangible cultural attractions such as local districts, traditional houses, Zoroastrians fire temples and mosques, but also need deep surf over intangible cultural facts such as culinary art, Handicrafts (Termeh), zourkhaneh (Pahlevani Rituals) and desertic lifestyle. It seems that visiting Yazd requires more than three days of walking tours.
