There's plenty of time to relax on the beach, explore hidden coves and soak up the holiday atmosphere of the Algarve.
Visit Jerez and discover the secrets to a perfect aperitif on a bodega tour or enjoy a tipple of sherry - the drink named after this town.
Travel across the Strait of Gibraltar and explore Chefchaouen, a sleepy mountain town of delightful blue-washed buildings.
Arrive in the city of Fes and step back in time into a huge medieval medina thick with exotic smells, tastes, sights and sounds. Fuel explorations of this imperial city with a glass of mint tea and some sweet Moroccan dates. After time spent sightseeing in Fes, be sure to unwind with an evening drink at the Palais Jamai while the haunting call to prayer floats over the city.
Find everything from genie lamps to leather slippers in Marrakech, an exotic city of souqs. Take a refreshing walk through the lush gardens at Majorelle Jardin, visit the lavishly decorated Saadian Tombs or end the adventure among the bustle of Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakech's bustling main bazaar.

Explore the grand Ait Benhaddou kasbah, Morocco's internationally acclaimed film set, as featured in Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.
Embark on a journey towards the mighty Sahara Desert, through the lush Draa Valley and on to Zagora - a small oasis town on the Sahara fringe that is perfect for an overnight stop.
Travel along rugged mountain ranges, through seas of sand and past the occasional desert oasis of date palms. Investigate an ancient library filled with manuscripts and discover the green-glazed pottery of Tamegroute. Enjoy a camel expedition across the Sahara at dusk and spend the night under the stars.
Climb aboard a 4x4 for an epic trip out to the Erg Chigaga sand dunes. Look out for the incredible sight of goats climbing argan trees on the way to the bustling market town of Taroudannt. Take to the souqs and haggle with local traders for silver jewellery or colourful Moroccan ceramics and mosaics.
Travel to the seaside gem of Essaouira and discover a variety of active or relaxing things to do. Essaouira's old medina is a fascinating place to explore with a local guide, or perhaps take the opportunity to relax by the beach or browse the bubbly markets.
Farewell the beach and head from Essaouira to Marrakech. Once again, get lost in the mayhem of the souqs or seek out Majorelle Gardens to relax in a tropical oasis.
