Picnic in Imam Ali Square
The newly renovated Imam Ali Square is a short walk from Masjid-e Jame. Many people stumble upon this open space as they make their way to or from the Friday Mosque. It is a popular place for locals to meet friends and enjoy dinner.
The collection of old markets used to be the heartbeat of town. While no longer the hub of the community, it is still surrounded by historic monuments, stunning architecture and small shops. Imam Ali Square is breathtaking and is a site treasured by locals.
Make your way around the square and appreciate the tranquillity of the open space. There are few places around Isfahan that give you so much room to roam. Stop by one of the shops for a meal or bring a packed lunch. Find a bench and share a meal with friends or family. Take this time to escape from the crowded streets and dive into your historic surroundings.
