The typical circuit around Iran leads from Tehran along a nice highway No.7 (Persian Gulf road) to the southwest direction. The bus will do two hundred and fifty kilometers between Tehran and historical Kashan in three hours. The highway leads through desert countryside tweaked in several places by views of the mountains and volcanic formations. Along the way is also situated interesting salar Hoz-e-Soltan. You will see it from the bus, but only on the horizon. Roughly halfway to Kashan les the great town of Qom clerics famous by shrine of Fatima. It is a possible stop for those having more time.
