Setting sail from Antwerp

Antwerp, Belgium's principal port, is a city bound up with the arts, once home to Flemish masters such as Rubens and Van Dyck. More recently Antwerp has carved out a reputation as the fashion capital of Belgium, and it's also a magnet for shopaholics, with designer boutiques and jewellers galore. The historic centre retains much of its medieval charm in spite of Antwerp's heavy bombardment during the Second World War, and the soaring Cathedral of Our Lady, completed in 1521, is quite magnificent.

Our tip

Small enough to be manageable, and with lots of crooked alleys and back streets, Antwerp is a city to walk in, so make the most of it and explore by foot.

Arriving in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Situated on Tenerife's north eastern shore, the island's capital is a busy port that serves mostly as a gateway to the popular south west coast and the spectacular volcanic landscapes of the island's interior. There are a few attractions in the town itself, including the tree-lined Ramblas and the strikingly modern Auditorium, designed by Santiago Calatrava, but we wouldn't advise spending too much time in Santa Cruz, particularly in summer when it can get rather crowded. Head instead for the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Cristobal de la Laguna, Tenerife's former capital and the prettiest town on the island.

Don't miss

Take the cable car to the summit of Mount Teide, for panoramic views of the Canarian archipelago – make sure you book in advance to avoid the queues.

We like De Witte Lelie, just eleven rooms in three 17th-century houses around a paved courtyard.
