Portugal's capital city located on the banks of the Tagus, only a few kilometres from the Atlantic coast, is a city of exceptionally rich cultural diversity. The mouth of the river harbour is dominated by two UNESCO World Heritage monuments, Jerónimos Monastery and Belém tower. Sample the local delicacies such as the pastel de nata—delicious creamy bakery flans. On the Alfama hillside, as you explore the Moorish streets, you may well hear sounds of fado drifting from the bars. Along Chiado's elegant streets, big fashion labels will entice in you for a bit of luxury shopping.

Andalucía's Cadiz is located on the Costa de la Luz, in the south-west of Spain. From the beaches of Cortadura, to the flamenco bars of Santa María, through the colourful streets of La Viña, you will be amazed by this city, which is both steeped in history and extremely festive. In the medieval El Pópulo district, you will stroll along covered passages in the narrow gaps between houses. You will also be able to mosey around the lush Mina Square.

Málaga, Spain
2:00 PM 11:00 PM

A historical and festive town, Málaga is located in Andalusia on the Costa del Sol. Between the marina and the beaches, you can stroll at your leisure along the seaside promenade of La Farola. Look out for La Malagueta bullring, set slightly further back. From the hill overlooking the old town, you'll see Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba, two fortified ensembles rising out from the cypresses and maritime pines. To visit Pablo Picasso's birthplace, first make for the courtly Plaza de la Merced. A few streets back from here, you can explore the museum dedicated to the artist in the Buenavista Palace.
On the shores of the Mediterranean, Motril enjoys a special place on the Costa Tropical. Sheltered from the cold northerly winds thanks to the mountains that surround this Andalusian city, you can make the most of the ideal micro-climate by enjoying a dip in the sea when we explore a wide variety of beaches located around the city.

Tangier, Morocco
6:30 AM 2:00 PM

Nestling in the Bay of Tangier, this bewitching Moroccan city lies at the northwestern tip of the country, along the famous Strait of Gibraltar. Following in the footsteps of the writers and artists inspired and seduced by the city's climate and setting, you'll love its rich landscapes and multicultural charm. You'll instantly understand as soon as you set foot in the heart of the Medina. An architectural masterpiece, the Kasbah is your gateway to the Sultan's Palace and its gardens. If you prefer beaches to museums, you can relax just a few minutes from the city on the beautiful sweep of sand bathed by the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated along the Atlantic coast, Casablanca is the very image of contemporary Morocco: westernised and cosmopolitan. Exploring the architectural heritage of the "White City" tells you all you need to know about its cultural and historical diversity. Breathtaking highlights include the majestic Hassan II Mosque, considered to be one of the greatest religious buildings in the world. You can explore the narrow alleys of the old Medina, which stand in sharp contrast to the surrounding modern architecture. To get the most from the seafront, the Ain Diab Corniche provides a pleasant place for strolling with easy access to the beach.
