Itinerary

Iran is not just one country: it brings together several within its borders. It has also had several lives, still visible: mosques coexist with temples from ancient times, provinces where time has stood still live in the same calendar as cities open to the West, and remnants of the monarchy stand alongside emblems of the Islamic Republic.

Vaccinations

Generally, Iran does not pose any specific health problems. No vaccinations are mandatory. As a precautionary measure, it is advisable to consult your doctor or health service before departure to obtain any additional information. Hygiene standards are high, and most travellers do not experience any discomfort other than fatigue due to the heat. However, bringing a basic pharmacy kit and any specific medication is recommended. Tap water is drinkable in most parts of the country, but it is better to drink bottled mineral water, which is available everywhere.

Money

The Iranian currency is the Rial. Prices are usually displayed in Rials, but people often refer to Toman, equivalent to 10 Rials. The use of credit cards is almost absent (except for some craft shops), and there are no ATMs. Therefore, bringing Euros from France and exchanging them for Rials on-site is necessary. In some stores, payment in Euros or US dollars is also accepted.

Upon arrival in Iran, you can exchange Euros for cash without any problem at the airport or on the second day in Tehran at a currency exchange office. It is also advisable to carry international credit cards because some merchants of valuable items (miniatures, turquoise, carpets) also accept credit cards (such as Visa, Mastercard, and American Express).

Language

The official language is Persian. In major cities, the educated population speaks English fairly well.

Religion

Iran is a Muslim country with a majority Shiite population (90%). There are significant communities of Sunni Muslims in the southwest and southeast of the country, as well as Armenians, Assyrians, and, to a lesser extent, Christians, Jews, and Zoroastrians, who are allowed and free to practice their faith.

Climate

Due to its vastness, Iran has a varied environment. Winter (December to February) can be very cold, especially in the northwest. In summer (June to August), temperatures reach 50°C on the Persian Gulf coast and southern provinces. Precipitation mainly occurs in the northern and western parts of the country, which have the coldest climate zone. Western Iran often experiences snow that lasts until early spring. Throughout the country, summer temperatures are always hot but more bearable due to the drier climate. In September, temperatures are still similar to summer, but evenings are cooler, so an outer layer of clothing may be pleasant.

Clothing

The choice of clothing should generally meet the criteria of practicality, comfort, and responsiveness to the climate and environment. Opting for sporty and comfortable clothing that allows greater freedom of movement and does not hinder blood circulation with tight laces or narrow fittings is advisable. Avoid clothing made of synthetic fibres that prevent sweating, especially in hot environments. A fundamental principle to remember when choosing a dress for this type of trip is layering: it is better to have different lightweight garments that can be To call your country, worn layered if needed. This technique allows you to adjust the degree of body coverage to changing climates and ensures effective protection against temperature extremes and wind.

  • For Women: Foreign women are generally treated with more tolerance. However, it is mandatory to wear a headscarf to cover the hair. A light cotton scarf is ideal, especially in hot seasons. A long and loose shirt or tunic with long sleeves and loose-fitting trousers that reach the ankles is appropriate. Skirts and dresses (at least calf-length) are also practical.

Regarding colours, there are no strict rules. Makeup is not a problem, but opting for a certain discretion is better. Sandals can be worn without socks.

  • For Men: Men have more freedom and wear anything except shorts or sleeveless T-shirts. Half-sleeved shirts, such as t-shirts or polos, can be worn comfortably.

Phone

To call Iran: Dial 00 + country code 98 (Iran) + regional code without the first 0 + your correspondent’s number. In Iran, for an international call: Dial 00 + country code (France 33, Belgium 32, Switzerland 41) + regional code followed by your correspondent’s number, removing the first 0. The most convenient solution for calling your country is through your hotel. For the use and coverage of mobile phones, refer to your service provider.

Electricity and Internet

The electrical current is 220V. The plugs are of the European type with two round pins.

  • In hotels, there is internet and Wi-Fi.
  • You can use an iPad.
  • The charger switches for cameras, computers, phones, etc., are the same as those in France.

Itinerary

The itinerary is flexible and depends on local conditions. During the trip, if necessary, the guide may modify the program.
