A two-day classic car rally was held in Tehran on Thursday and Friday to mark the World Tourism Day, internationally observed on Sept. 27.
The event was jointly organized by Semnan Province's office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization and Niavaran Cultural Complex in north Tehran, IRNA reported. 
It included 80 antique and classic cars, mostly produced by American and European companies from the 1970s to 1990s.
“The vintage four-wheelers took to the road starting from Niavaran and moved towards the southeast. Passing Sorkheh County that borders Semnan Province, the group of vehicles ended their trip in Mahdishahr City,” Mehdi Jamal, the head of the provincial ICHHTO, told reporters.
Due to the international tourism occasion, the rally’s route was mapped in a way that it crisscrossed the historically and ecologically prominent spots of the area.
