There are a handful of European cities that not only wear their history well but who's ancient past make for a journey through time, and Athens is one of them.
Home to one of the world's ancient civilisations, it makes for one of the most interesting cities in the world. Like an outdoor museum, the ancient city boasts incredible ruins and fascinating historical sites to gaze upon at every turn.
Keeping a watchful eye over the city is the Acropolis. The range of ancient monuments rests on a large hill that can be seen across central Athens. The spectacular Parthenon takes centre stage and is truly a beautiful piece of architecture. Dating back to 447BC, the temple was built for, and dedicated to, the goddess Athena. Although obviously crumbling in places, it’s easy to imagine the impact it would have had in its glory days.
There are many other ruins on the Acropolis, so try and tear your eyes away from the grand Parthenon to explore the likes of the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheum among others, and learn about their interesting individual stories.

Marketed as the sunny side of Austria's Alps, that description didn’t quite ring true when we arrived at the last stop on our #AustrianWinter tour.

Add to that, Carinthia did not disappoint with its wealth of activities both on and off the slopes, regardless of the weather.

The likes of Barcelona, Madrid and Seville have long grabbed the attention of travellers with a voracious appetite for city life. But Spain is a country with lots of great smaller, lesser-visited cities, such as Zaragoza. And with a chequered history, fantastic food, renaissance and modern art, and more there are many great things to do in Zaragoza that make this one of the country's smallest unmissable city break destinations.

There's a high-speed train network connecting many of Spain's major cities. But did you know they also offer up opportunities to travel through time?

Tarragona is a Spanish city I'd never visited before but wholeheartedly enjoyed.
