Málaga, Spain
6:00 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.

Cadiz, Spain
8:00 AM 7:00 PM

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. The star of the show is the magnificent cathedral and its dome crowned with yellow porcelain, presiding above the ocean.

03 Nov 2018
Casablanca, Morocco
12:00 PM 10:00 PM

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.

Funchal, Portugal

This attractive capital of Madeira is located on the southern coast of the island. The walkways of the old town are lined with azulejos, or multi-colored mosaics. If you follow these patterns, they'll lead you to the appetising Mercado dos Lavradores market stands, the Frederico de Freitas Museum, and the golden panelling of the Catedral de la Sé. Along the waterfront, the palm tree-shaded promenade leads you to the Teleférico de Monte, Madeira's cable cars. Its panoramic cabins transport you over the city to top of Monte, where you can see the picturesque botanical garden.

The capital city of Tenerife is located on the northeast coast of the island. Close to the port is the monumental Plaza de España, bedecked with a fountain and plant sculptures. Around the plaza, you can admire the white marble Triunfo de la Candelaria obelisk, the historic casino of Santa Cruz, and the majestic Guimerá Theatre. Not far from here, the picturesque Iglesia de la Concepción church features the characteristic traits of Canary architecture.
