It's all relative, the enemy will always attack when you're at your weakest or when they know they are stronger (or think they are).

I voted for the Akhemenids because they were larger in size, I also have a general dis-like of the Sssnids.

Uhm, AFAIK the Tujue managed to conquer most of Khorasan and Northern Afghanistan from the Sssnids, Turkic city-states existed in the region thereafter. But the Battle of Herat was a great defeat for them.

Dario, which "your" army? Since when the Italians fight the Sssnids?

I agree with Shayan.  I also heard that at that time the Sassanids farming and planting abilities were better then any other country in the world. 

Also the Sassanids had many more great rulers then the Achamanids.  The Achamanids were limited to Cyus the Great, Dariush the Great, Xexegerus and maybe one more but thats it. 

Almost all of the Sassanids leaders were great exept a few.

sassanid definetly.

during the sassanid dynasty, iran was the richest empire in the world. it was also the most tolerant and culturally advanced.

teh best and biggest university of the time was built by the sassanids.

I think the current Mullah rulers are by far the best

Sure anyone can try to improve their country and move forward but how many rulers purposely try to make their country go backwards?

Well my knowledge of both empires is fairly limited, but from what I have read I would say the Achaemenid empire was better regarding tolerance of religion, and others cultures etc.  While the Sassanids were much stronger militarily; anyone who could fight and beat the Romans and later the Byzantines certainly commanded respect.

The rulers of the Persian Empire obviously.
The Sassanid Empire as just a palid imitation of the previous one.
I think that even Parthians have made a better job them the Sassanids emperors.
 
No other empire achieved at least in that land such extension of land and power!
