Spent a few days in Shiraz and found it to be a lovely city, full of gardens, good food, and lovely people, but by far was the trip out to Persepolis, the ancient palace ruins. When you visit Persepolis, you can understand why Darius saw himself as king of the world. Amazing relief sculpture covers everything left. The complex was all but completely destroyed by Alexander the Great, but enough is left to make it well worth the visit. I was frankly amazed by it.
