Meidan Emam is an absolute must-see in Esfahan. One can easily spend hours there. Aside from the beauty of this historic site there are also shops and tea houses that are well worth checking out.

One of the largest public squares, a little smaller then Tianamen Saure in China. It was used for Polo matches. Filled with fountains, palace, mosques, viewing areas,... More

Find me a mix of ancient shopping mall, museums and religious structures and I'll give you a few bucks. This most definite must see and you'll need more than one visit to absorb is a delight.
