The Naqsh-e Jahan Square is stunningly beautiful in the daytime, but don't forget to visit it at night. On summer nights it comes to life completely when every inch of it is covered with families having a picknick. Really nice atmosphere!

I love it specially these days because of 2 reasons; 1. the river is dry so you can go to the historical bridge and spend time near its central pool. 2. cars and buses are not aloud to came to the square and it has very calm atmosphere with many lovely monuments:)
