Extraregion or Travel topic/itinerary?[edit]

This article's listing as an "extraregion" seems to me to be a miscategorization. There is no "Persian Empire" in today's world, so this should be a travel topic or itinerary that attempts to highlight noteworthy sites, museums, battlefields, etc related to the Persian Empire. It should not be a region. ChubbyWimbus (talk) 02:47, 4 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

A more general discussion involving historical regions is underway, including mention of this specific article. Let's see what happens with that discussion first. Please join the discussion at Wikivoyage_talk:Geographical_hierarchy#Conclusion.3F. Texugo (talk) 02:50, 4 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

The Persian_Empire#Cities section starts with:

See Iran#Cities for the main modern towns there. This section lists only places not on that list.

Despite that, people have recently added Shiraz & Tehran. Delete those? Or change the introductory text & add Isphahan , Tabriz, Mashad, perhaps others? Pashley (talk) 07:10, 27 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I think the "main modern towns" should be irrelevant to a historic article. If the "modern towns" are influential and contain important sites from the empire's glory days, I don't see how the article would be improved by not including them. The article should have as many relevant and interesting places related to the Persian Empire as possible. ChubbyWimbus (talk) 10:54, 27 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
