Oporto (from Leixoes), Portugal
A short journey from Leixões takes you into the heart of Oporto, with its fortress-like Cathedral and the Baroque Church of Clérigos. Head to the historic Ribeira District, where the narrow, cobbled lanes wind their way down to the Douro River. Don’t forget to visit one of the many wine cellars for a taste of the tipple named after the city, Port. On the ground floor of the Museu Romantico is the Port Wine Institute, where port is served with great ceremony.

Oporto sits deep in the gorge of the River Douro and on the riverside – dominated by the two-level Luis I bridge – it’s possible to look up at the narrow old town streets climbing out of the valley. Pastel-fronted houses with red-tiled roofs line the streets, mixed with neo-classical buildings and wonderful baroque churches. Dominating the centre of the city is the fortress-like Cathedral, which is worth visiting for the views alone.

Malaga, Spain
Situated on Andalusia's beautiful Mediterranean coast, Malaga offers everything you would expect from a city on the Costa del Sol: seemingly endless stretches of golden sand beaches, fantastic restaurants serving traditional tapas and friendly bars attract locals and holidaymakers alike.

There's much more to the region's captivating capital than busy beach resorts though. Dig a little deeper and a wealth of cultural, historical, artistic and architectural treasures reveal themselves, such as Catedral de Málaga, the statuesque and striking Alcazaba Fortress and Castillo de Gibralfaro. Not-to-be-missed is the Picasso Museum, which exhibits a fantastic collection of masterpieces from arguably Malaga's most famous 'son', Pablo Picasso.

What's more, Malaga is also your gateway to Granada and the glorious Alhambra, where proud 14th century palaces and exotic gardens are Spain's finest expression of Moorish art; as well as the Ronda Valley, where on tour you can explore a charming old town and the picturesque El Tajo gorge.

Barcelona, Spain
Spain's must-see cosmopolitan second city, Barcelona, is awash with heritage and its mood is infused with a vibrant Catalan spirit.There's something around every corner of the city: jewels of Catalan and contemporary architecture, relaxing parks and beaches, mouth-watering markets and treasures from its Roman and Medieval past.

Barcelona's 2000-year-old city walls, temple columns and subterranean stone corridors provide a glimpse back to the time of the Romans, while the shady plazas and lanes of the Gothic quarter, and Barcelona’s Old Town district, the Ciutat Vella, reveal the origins of its medieval culture.

The city is famous for an incredible array of UNESCO-listed buildings from world-renowned architect Antoni Gaudi. His sculptural masterpieces of Modernisme are dotted across the city. La Sagrada Familia - Barcelona’s Gaudi-designed Roman Catholic Church – is the most famous landmark. With its astonishing details and stunning facades, this unique work of art is one of Europe’s most visited sites.

Toulon, France.
With a beautiful natural harbour and surrounding hills topped by forts, Toulon has long been one of France’s main maritime centres. In the old town, close to the harbour, the Romanesque Cathédrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure dates from the 11th and 12th centuries. In front of the town hall and the naval museum, the columns are carved figures of men, known as atlantes or caryatids – it is a style borrowed from Ancient Greece. The naval museum itself is interesting, with models of ships, displays about galley slaves and pirates and equipment ranging from wheels to figureheads. The Toulon Museum has collections of art from the past 500 years.

On Cours Lafayette in the Old Town there is a fabulous open-air market selling fresh fruit, vegetables and charcuterie. It’s open every morning apart from Monday and it’s worth visiting just to savour the smell of fresh herbs and lavender that hangs in the air.

Nice, France
Known as the “Queen of the Riviera”, Nice is a beautiful, sun-kissed city that attracts visitors from around the globe. The capital of the Côte d'Azur curves beautifully round the Bay of Angels, and is as desirable and glamorous as one wants it to be.

Home to the famous Promenade des Anglais, Nice has been a magnet for sun seekers and high-rollers since the 19th century. And most still come to the city to sample the authentic French Riviera lifestyle.

The glorious palm-fringed beach hugs the azure sea on one side, while the other side is lined with Belle Époque buildings. The city centre is awash with Italian inspired architecture, vast squares and historic monuments to admire and a vast array of shops and market stalls perfect for retail therapy. Be sure to visit the Italian Baroque Church of Saint Giuame, the Cathédrale Sainte Réparate, the Musée Matisse and the Chagall Museum, all must-visit attractions.

At the eastern end of Quai des États-Unis lies the 300ft high Castle Hill, which offers beautiful waterfalls, pools and parks, as well as breath-taking views of Vieux Nice and the bay.

Cartagena, Spain
One of Spain’s most important port cities for over 2000 years, Cartagena is bursting with history and culture. Originally built over five hills by the Romans, Cartagena is strategically placed on the Mediterranean and boasts some wonderful architecture and historic monuments. They include Casa de la Fortuna, a villa with murals and mosaics, and the medieval Castillo de la Conception, which served as a fortress for the Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Castilians, and overlooks the stunning natural harbour of the Murcia coast.

Many of the buildings from Roman Cartagena have disappeared, but some important sites remain, including the amphitheatre which dates from around 100BC.

Cartagena is also home to a number of Modernist buildings that were designed and built by the pupils of Antoni Gaudi, the world famous architect renowned for designing the stunning La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The city’s tapas bars and vibrant bars on the marina offer some fabulous local wining and dining.

Gibraltar
British overseas territory, Gibraltar, on Spain's south coast is dominated by a 426m-high limestone ridge: The Rock. The Rock of Gibraltar is a sentinel that guards the Straits, and the overtly-British town nestled between the European and African continents. Its atmosphere is all the more familiar due to its helmeted policemen, red pillar boxes, fish and chip shops, traditional pubs and Marks & Spencer shops.


Layers of fortifications on The Rock include the remains of a 14th-century Moorish Castle and the 18th century Great Siege Tunnels. The Europa Point Lighthouse and St. Michael’s limestone cave light show are both well worth seeking out.

Resolutely British for nearly 300 years, Gibraltar’s unique history is of interest but it's the camera-loving Barbary Apes that tend to steal the show.
