5 Oporto, Portugal
You'll find that Portugal's second city, set picturesquely on the banks of the River Douro, has some unexpected and long-established links with Britain, not least because of it's role as the home of Portugal's port wine trade. A fascinating Old Town, whose 12th century cathedral overlooks a maze of narrow streets, medieval houses and little baroque churches, is testimony to Oporto's rich history.

7 Funchal, Madeira
The picturesque whitewashed capital of this mountainous Portuguese island, 350 miles off the coast of Africa, 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. 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!

Our tour will take us to the oldest part of the island and its lush vegetation. From Santa Cruz de La Palma, we will go to the viewpoint Mirador de San Bartolo de La Glaga, situated right on the edge of two deep-cut gorges. From here we travel north to the evergreen forest Los Tilos, where there are many indigenous plats of the island, such as the Canarian holly tree, heather, strawberry tree and the Canarian bellflower. Continuing, we visit the attractive little town of Los Sauces. An aperitif is served in a typical Canarian restaurant, then we are given a little free time before we head down the coast; there is an optional walk through a banana plantation, whilst enjoying a panoramic view of the steep coast and natural seawater pools called ‘Charco Azul'. On the return journey, we will pass through San Andrés. There is some optional walking over uneven ground involved in this tour, approximately 1 hour, as well as a few steps to be negotiated.

9 Santa Cruz de Tenerife
The lively, cosmopolitan capital of the largest of the Canaries, Santa Cruz has much of architectural and historical interest to offer. Easily reached are the elegant beach resort of Puerto de la Cruz, the lively leisure complex of Playa de las Americas, the banana and pineapple plantations of the beautiful Orotava Valley, and the stunning volcanic scenery and views of El Teide National Park, dominated by the 12,000ft snow-tipped peak of Spain's highest mountain.
From Santa Cruz we drive inland to La Laguna, the islands second city as well as the cultural and religious capital. Driving through pine forests affords the occasional glimpse of snow capped Mount Teide before arriving at the 'Pyramids of Guimar'. Since 1981, famous anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl has been investigating the step pyramids in Guimar similar to those found in Mexico, Peru and ancient Mesopotamia. The park provides an interesting insight into the theories surrounding their origin.

10 Arrecife, Lanzarote
Arrecife is the gateway to the island of Lanzarote, whose desolate yet dramatic lunar-like landscapes and coal-black sand beaches were shaped by 18th century volcanic eruptions. Ride by camel to the still hissing rocks of the great ‘Fire Mountains' in Timanfaya National Park – then cool down with a glass or two of wine and delicious paella in a local seafront restaurant!

12 Lisbon, Portugal
It was from historic Lisbon, built on seven low hills beside the wide Tagus estuary, that some of Europe's greatest explorers set sail in pursuit of the riches that built Portugal's former global empire in the New World, Africa and the Indies. Memories of that glorious past linger amid the grand avenues and elegant squares of the attractive capital's 18th century lower town - a vivid contrast with the colourful honeycomb of cobbled streets in the old Moorish Alfama quarter and the bohemian mood of the hilly Bairro Alto.

13 Vigo, Spain
It is hard to believe that in 1702, amid the calm setting of Vigo's fjord-like harbour, an English and Dutch force once fought and defeated the French and Spanish fleets anchored here. A major port city of Galicia, renowned for its seafood, Vigo has an appealing old town with a labyrinth of steep and winding narrow streets and shaded squares. Nearby is Santiago de Compostela, Christendom's third most holy pilgrimage shrine, in whose vast Gothic cathedral lays the body of St James.
