Morning. Start your day in Baku's Old City, known as Icheri Sheher in Azerbaijani language. Take a stroll through the narrow streets paved with cobblestones and admire the ancient buildings with their intricate carvings, colorful tiles, and ornate balconies. Visit the iconic Maiden Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and climb up to the top for stunning views of the city and the Caspian Sea.
Afternoon. After visiting Maiden Tower, head to the Palace of the Shirvanshahs, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. This 15th-century palace complex is a masterpiece of Azerbaijani architecture with its intricate masonry, domed roofs, and beautiful courtyards. You can also visit the Museum of Miniature Books, which houses a collection of over 6,000 tiny books from around the world.
Evening. For dinner, head to Firuze Restaurant, a local favorite that serves traditional Azerbaijani cuisine with a modern twist. Try the plov, a delicious rice dish with lamb and dried fruit, or the dolma, stuffed grape leaves with meat and rice.
