Dec 1, Sunday
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands » 9 am 6 pm
The largest and most populated island of the seven which make up the Canary Archipelago, Tenerife lies northwest of the African continent. Its shape is triangular and was formed as a result of the massive volcanic eruptions, which once dominated the area. The island's original economy was based on agriculture, including the harvesting of bananas, potatoes and tomatoes. However, new industrial products and activities, such as oil, tobacco and paper mills, have slowly emerged. Nonetheless, tourism remains the main industry of Tenerife.
Dec 2, Monday
Arrecife, Lanzarote » 8 am 5 pm

The capital city of Arrecife, which means “reef” in Spanish, was named after the many volcanic rock reefs and islets along the coast that form the city’s magnificent seafront promenade. While it originated in the 15th century as a small fishing harbor, the city is now an urban metropolis, as well as the island’s main commercial center. The primary pedestrian shopping street, Calle Léon y Castillo, hosts a wide range of shops and cafes, and the city’s hub is concentrated around El Charco de San Gines, a lagoon surrounded by fishermen’s houses.

Dec 3, Tuesday
Agadir, Morocco » 9 am 5 pm
A popular destination for sun-worshippers, Agadir is the center of the Barbary Coast's chic resort area and enjoys a lovely warm temperature year-round. A modern city, Agadir was completely rebuilt after a devastating earthquake struck in 1960. In sharp contrast, the nearby antique city of Taroudant makes a pleasant destination for explorers.
Dec 4, Wednesday
Casablanca, Morocco » 8 am 7 pm
Centuries-old Casablanca, Morocco's largest city and principal port, lies on the Atlantic coast of North Africa. Awaiting your discovery is a timeless blend of Arabic culture and French sophistication, as seen by the imposing administrative buildings that recall years of colonial influence. Although the spirits of Bergman and Bogart still linger in the narrow alleyways of the old Medina, this gleaming white city has a firm grasp on the 21st century. Today, it encompasses broad palm-lined boulevards, attractive public parks and soaring high-rises. Bargain-filled souks are reminders of mysterious Africa and shopping aficionados will delight in scouring narrow alleyways for great buys in leatherwork, pottery, carved woodwork and Moroccan rugs.
Dec 5, Thursday
Cádiz/Seville, Spain » 8 am 10 pm
On a low-lying peninsula extending into the crescent-shaped bay stands 3,000-year-old Cádiz, the Western world's oldest continuously inhabited city. Neat houses huddle within high walls, while the surrounding countryside is lush with olive groves. The Puertas de Tierra divides the city in two. Modern Cádiz lies on the isthmus, while the romantic, historical section is located on the other side. The old districts of El Pópulo and Santa Maria, adorned with narrow streets and ancient stone walls, are in sharp contrast to the parks, gardens, wide roads and plazas of the bustling commercial area.

Dec 7, Saturday
Valencia, Spain » 8 am 6 pm

One of the largest cities of Spain, Valencia is also one of the country's most dynamic. Its location on the Mediterranean offers a mild climate, bringing sun worshippers to Valencia's many beaches. Sports aficionados will find activities galore, including golf, diving, cycling and tennis. When the sun goes down, the tempo speeds up as locals and visitors gather in cafes and nightclubs.

Given that Valencia was founded by the Romans and has been a witness to, if not directly involved in, the history of the centuries, the city also is a showcase of art and architecture. Old Town boasts a cathedral that is mainly of early gothic style, with Romanesque and baroque additions. In the cathedral's museum are works of Goya and the paintings of the Valencia School, representing art of the 15th to the 17th centuries. Spanning the river are three old bridges, one of which has 15th-century towers that were part of Valencia's fortified walls. Then there is Spain's national hero, El Cid, whose famous battle against the Moors was waged here in Valencia.
