Intrepid traveler Rick Steves has taken his audience around the world through his TV specials and radio show. Well-known for his trips to hidden corners of Europe, he went outside the continent for his latest show, Rick Steves' Iran.

Steves visited Tehran, Esfahan, Shiraz and Persepolis. He also went to Esfahan's Imam Mosque, which he found to be both "a vibrant place of worship" and tourist attraction.
