Go to the grand bazaar, and walk around the maze of stalls, many of which have been there handed through families for hundreds of years. Right across the bazaar is a museum called Kakh e Golestan (spelling iffy-sorry). It was the Shah's palace.
Shemran and Pahlavi streets are in Northern Tehran and have shops, bakeries, shrines, etc and is affluent part of the city. Don;t miss trying to hike up the paths of Darband, the mountain that overlooks Northern Tehran, the neighborhood is called Tajrish (sp?) where there is a smaller bazaar as well. You can walk up the mountain and find tea houses, kabab houses, the locals walking up there as well where they find a lot of freedom to relax and talk freely, picnic, dance etc. over 6 years ago
