  12:00am La Coruna, Spain
With La Coruna's impressive and extensive history, visitors are often surprised at how modern the city is. It was from here that, in 1588, Spain sent its "invincible" Armada sailing. A year later, Sir Francis Drake sent those ships scrambling, burning most of the city just for good measure. In the process, La Coruna lost all of its Roman antiquities, including the Torre de Hercules, the present day monument was totally covered over by brick. The city does, however, still offer incredible vistas, situated as it is on an outstretch of land blanketed on each side by the sea.

  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 Barcelona, Spain
Home to the 1992 Olympics, this cosmopolitan yet Gothic city is a study in contrasts. Take a few extra days to browse the modern shops along the bustling Las Ramblas or explore Barcelona's oldest residential district, the Barri Gotic. And the Picasso Museum is an absolute must-see.

19 Oct 2020
  12:00am Marseille, France
The largest port on the Mediterranean, Marseille is France's second largest city and a virtual melting pot of peoples and cultures. It is also a place of striking contrasts, from the fishing boats and pleasure craft of the picturesque Vieux Port to the modern Canebiere. Dominating the harbour is the infamous Chateau d'If, the rocky prison from which Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo escaped. Marseille is also your gateway to Provence. Explore the countryside around Arles and Avignon, immortalized in the canvases of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso.

  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 Cadiz, Spain
Spain's gateway to the Atlantic, Cadiz welcomes you to 3,000 years of history and to the nearby city of Seville, famed for its bullfights, flamenco and flower-filled patios. Columbus crossed the ocean blue from Andalusia, forever tying the Americas to Seville.

  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.
