Breakfast at hotel, proceed to explore the city of Baku.
Begin your city tour with a prompt hotel pick up. Travel straight to the heart of ancient Baku; Icheri Sheher is dubbed as Baku’s Acropolis and is the first of its kind in the country to be declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander through this walled city which is well preserved as a historical-architectural reserve, and step back in time as you marvel at its many old, venerable landmarks such as Maiden’s Tower, Shirvanshah Palace Complex and Castle Synyk Gala (most of which date back between 7th century and 16th century).
Icheri Sheher is also home to the world’s only Miniature Books Museum, featuring a massive repertoire of books collected by the museum’s owner, Zarifa Salahova. You’ll get to see here 6500 plus books from over 65 countries. Next, get ready for a shift in the scene as you follow your guide to the Highland Park or Viewing Square which is considered one of Baku’s highest and most picturesque spots. Besides its super relaxed ambience, you can expect to take in the best of the city views from here.
Continue your trip to the iconic Flame Tower - a set of three flame-shaped towers (reflecting Baku’s ancient fire worshiping tradition), and then set off to Baku National Boulevard which is more than 100 years old and one of the city’s most favorite recreation spots. Afterwards, you’ll head to Baku’s attractions like Fountains Square and Carpet Museum with one of the world’s largest collections of carpet plus thousands of such unique exhibits as ceramics, metal works, Bronze Age jewelry etc.
Before we drop you back to your hotel, get a closer look at the Heydar Aliyev Center which is regarded as the symbol of modern Baku for its intricately stunning curved-style architecture.
After tour, transfer to hotel, overnight stay at hotel.
