Coming from Hamadan and with a short stop in Dorud we took a taxi through the desert to Isfahan. Impressive architecture and from the cities I’ve seen the nicest to just wander around (together with Yazd). Many older buildings are one or two story buildings with high ceilings, arranging all rooms around one patio with plants and/ or a fountain in the center. Our hostel was one of them: Almost too nice to leave and very supportive staff, e.g. explaining how to use Snap, the local ‚Uber‘ to us.
