Here, in one volume: Marjane Satrapi's best-selling, internationally acclaimed graphic memoir.Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecomingboth sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland.This has to be one of our best or the best holiday we have had: the beautiful architecture, the wealth of history, the culture and the friendly people.“ Sue Sullman “We had a great holiday, saw so many sights - a fascination for the soul and mind. We especially enjoyed Persepolis and the tombs of Xerxes, Darius and Cyrus, they were absolutely stunning.” Jerry and Anne O’Hagan “My first impression of Persepolis was of awe at the vastness and power that must have been present to be able to command the building of the sites. It was quite an experience and the people were delightful.” Richard Broomhead “For me, the people of Iran were the standout and most enjoyable aspect, they were just extraordinary, so relatable and self-aware.
Shiraz is the capital of southern Iran and has a completely different feel from Tehran and the north.
Famed over the centuries for its nightingales, poetry and wine, Shiraz has traditionally been regarded Iran’s cultural capital.
Two of Persia’s greatest Sufi poets are entombed here, while the famously laid-back locals are proud of their refined parks and gardens, dating from the Zand era of the late 18th century.
Pasargadae was the Achaemenid capital before the foundation of Persepolis, and is famous today as the site of the marble tomb of Cyrus the Great (558–530BC), which sits on a high, stepped plinth on a river plain near the hilltop fortress of Toll e-Takht.
Overlooked by most visitors, the monument has retained the lonely serenity enjoyed by Ernst Herzfeld, Aurel Stein and the other archeologists who first explored the region in the early 20th century.
