  12:00am Leixoes, Portugal
At the mouth of the Rio Douro lies the city of Porto, known mostly for its port wine trade. With origins dating back to the 5th century, there is plenty to see in this town that was named European Capital of Culture in 2001. Stroll the Ribeira neighborhood along the river, explore the Cathedral area, or tour the port lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia across the river. Savoring a taste of tawny port, tripe and seafood while here is highly recommended.

  12:00am Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
Much painted by Sir Winston Churchill, Madeira has been offering the British visitor a warm welcome for three centuries, its famous wine the perfect aid to total relaxation! Located off the coast of Africa, Funchal has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this 'floating garden' with the year-round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit.

  12:00am Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Spain
The largest of the Canary Islands. Its most famous attraction is an enormous volcanic crater 30 miles (48 km) around, out of which Mount Teide soars to a height of 12,200 ft. A cable car provides transportation to the top, for a breathtaking panorama of islands afloat in a blue sea. Santa Cruz is perfect for exploration on foot, with wide avenues, excellent examples of modernist architecture, sophisticated shops, and an oasis of birdsong, fountains, and greenery in the city park. An open-air sculpture garden exhibits the work of contemporary artists amidst palm trees and the lushness of tropical foliage.

  12:00am Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain
The Canary archipelago was sculpted by a period of intense volcanic activity; its islands possess a stark, near lunar beauty. Gran Canaria is the third-largest island in the group and is often described as the 'Round Island' for its near-circular shape. Las Palmas, its capital, is also the largest city in the Canaries numbering some 500,000 inhabitants. Despite the seemingly inhospitable landscape, farmers in Gran Canaria's Angostura Valley cultivate abundant crops of tomatoes, onions, melons, and figs. Moreover the island's climates, lack of rainfall, and fine beaches have long drawn Europeans seeking the winter sun.

  12:00am Arrecife, Lanzarote, Spain
Arrecife is a city in the Canary Islands situated on the east side of the island of Lanzarote. Arrecife has been the capital of Lanzarote since 1852. Arrecife does have a very picturesque hub, which is concentrated around El Charco (the puddle) and the main seafront promenades and parks and can also boast an interesting historical heritage.

  12:00am Lisbon, Portugal
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.

  12:00am Vigo, Spain
Vigo clings to the slope of Monte del Castro, overlooking a namesake bay so vast, it could shelter an entire fleet. The city's medieval heritage is seen in the narrow streets and granite houses of the Ribera del Berbes, the old fishermen's quarter. Vigo is also the gateway to Santiago de Compostela, the most venerated shrine in all Europe during the Middle Ages. Pilgrims from the four corners of Christendom flocked to the magnificent cathedral, built between the 12th and 13th centuries. The cathedral still draws thousands of daily visitors today.
