Spring (from late March to late June):

Iranian New Year starts with Spring, with the great weather condition in most parts of the country. It is the best time to see Iran’s culture and traditional ceremonies

For sure, you will have a fantastic and unforgettable experience during this period. During the New Year festival ‘Eid-Nowruz’ almost all cities and villages hold their traditional ceremonies and festivals.
