Long a holiday destination for low to mid-range budgets across Europe, the Algarve does have some hidden gems. An easy drive south from Lisbon or west from Seville, and easily accessed from Faro airport, this is the place where you can get your beach on. In Lagos, explore paths that lead to hidden cove beaches, where your hike is rewarded with stunning views of the cliffs and rock formations. Skip Faro and spend time sightseeing in the little town of Tavira, Phil Betty Women Flats shoes Purple Square Toe Slip-On Ballet Suede Comfort Dress Boat shoesOwen Moll Women Pumps, Sexy Transparent Thin High Heels Pointed Toe Party Club shoesfor a more authentic taste of Algarve city life.

The Eternal City is just that. It has endured thousands of years, and still today is abuzz with always-tan Romans zipping around on scooters and beautiful people enjoying la Dolce Vita.

And avoid eating at restaurants near the touristy sights, they will always be overpriced and underwhelming.

At the far end of the African continent, Capetown is not the place easiest to reach. Often coupled with a stop in Johannesburg and Kruger Park (safari) this city is actually a destination in and of itself, so plan accordingly. It’s buzzing with trendy restaurants, sophisticated hotels both grande dame and boutique, and the surrounding nature is astonishing. The nearby wine country warrants exploration whether you're a wino or not, with gorgeous scenery and first-class resorts and lodges. If you’re into adventures, aside from hiking the cliffs near the southernmost edge of the world, you can cage dive with great white sharks near Seal Island or Gansbaai.

This Mexican city is a beautiful escape. Its well-preserved colonial town has earned the status of Unesco World Heritage Site. Baroque and Neo-Classical buildings in fifty shades of marigold and terracotta stand strong against the pops of color found in blue skies, fuchsia bouganvilla vines, green cacti, and geometric azulejo tiles. It’s a pretty organized tourist destination with clean streets, good lighting at night, fine shopping, a variety of accommodations,Owen Moll Women Flats, Fashion Cover Heel Square Med Heel Plaid Work shoes BlackPointed Toes Kitten Heels Stiletto Heel Ladies Women Girls Ladies Court shoes Satin Sandals Classic shoes,Red,EU39 and excellent restaurants.
