Qazvin, a restored caravanserai-turned-arts precinct, is filled with fascinating museums and a handful of varied eating options.

Famed for carpets and seedless grapes, Qazvin is primarily a staging point for excursions to the famous Castles of the Assassins and trekking in the Alamut Valley.

Take time to stroll through the bazaar and alleys and visit the Jame Mosque of Qazvin, one of the largest and oldest mosques in Iran, built on a fire temple of the Sassanid era. The Chehel Sotun, a Safavid Pavilion, the only monument left of the royal places from Shah Tahmasb’s time, is located in the middle of a large garden in Azadi Square.
