Right in the heart of the city, the Grand Bazaar is an essential visit for any tourist in Tehran. With over 10 kilometers of labyrinthine alleyways filled with covered shops, haggling customers, and general commotion, you will find everything from jewelry to carpets and pots and pans for sale here.
One of Tehran’s oldest areas, this commercial center is teeming with history and character, and there are some exceptional restaurants dotted around. Prepare for a sensual bombardment; not for the agoraphobic! Be sure to check out the nearby Jomeh bazaar for antiques, every Friday on Jomhuri Street.
