  12:00am Malaga, Spain
Its privileged location has attracted travellers, merchants, artists and explorers that have left their mark on what is now a cosmopolitan, relaxed and hospitable city. Malaga has an attractive old quarter by its cathedral, two forts, the Alcazaba and Gibralfaro, that offer fine views, gardens and museums, and good shopping on its bustling 'avenidas'. It is the gateway to the beaches of Torremolinos, the exclusive clubs and marina of Marbella, Puerto Banus and the hill village of Mijas.

  12:00am Cartegena, Spain
This refreshing town on Spain's Murcia coast is a living book of history with its displays of what remains of forts, naval walls, Moorish-influenced buildings, and ruins left behind by the Romans. Small restaurants line the picturesque shores serving marinated octopus and piping hot paellas - perhaps with a glass of wine - to anyone wishing to relax aside the Mediterranean.

  12:00am Ibiza, Spain
Mountainous Ibiza is known as Isla Blanca, the White Island, perhaps because of the dazzling white walls of the traditional houses and churches that make up the small villages dotting its landscape. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of Greek islands, making it unique among the Balearic Isles, and its rustic beauty attracts artists, as well photo and film shoots. Ibiza's nightlife is legendary, and not to be missed.

  12:00am Mahon, Menorca, Spain
Built atop majestic cliffs with a beautiful natural harbor below it, Mahon is an unusual blend of Anglo and Spanish characteristics. Visit its well-preserved Moorish remains and uncover a town that was under English rule for the better part of a century.

  12:00am Ajaccio, Corsica, France
The capital of Corsica, Ajaccio is the island's largest town - and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. One can stroll past the cathedral where the future emperor was baptised, the Casa Bonaparte is a museum devoted to the imperial glory. But Corsica is also the "scented isle" - a place of dramatic shoreline cliffs, small coves, and golden beaches.

  12:00am Olbia, Sardinia, Italy
In a desirable location on the stunning Costa Smeralda, Olbia has been inhabited since the 8th century BC, but a recent archaeological discovery of 24 shipwrecks - two of them from the age of Nero - has landed it in the spotlight. The name Olbia means "happy town", though its past has been somewhat difficult, with the city destroyed and rebuilt many times throughout its history. Of course that makes it all the more interesting, as every empire that came and went has left something of value behind for you to see.

Lisbon, the cultural centre and capital of Portugal, is located at the mouth of the Tagus River. The port's strategic location brought about Portugal's great wave of exploration during the 15th century. Trade routes from the east brought rich and varied spices, textiles and foreign influences. Today, the soaring, mile-and-a-half-long 25th of April Bridge greets you as you enter the harbour.
