It’s amazing how much of Kashan you can see in a single day, the bus ride from Tehran included, provided you make it to the bus station early. The town is small and taxi rides cheap and plentiful. I did have the advantage of being accompanied by a guide who swiftly took me from site to site. This was 2006, when a day trip was recommended because of lack decent hotels in Kashan. Today there are plenty hotels and so-called eco-lodges that cater to foreign visitors. Please comment with your feedback and questions.
