Tehran's metropolis

Tehran can’t compete with Esfahan or Shiraz on culture of beauty, but to properly take the pulse of the nation you have to head to the capital. Tehran is fast, frenetic, and full of hustle, and there’s no point in swimming against the tide. The city’s clogged streets are best negotiated on motorcycle taxis – jump onboard, try not to scream, and be the fastest thing on Iran’s roads. Unforgettable, and certainly the quickest way to get from your hotel to some of the country’s best museums and restaurants.
