The main music festival site at Sines was within the walls of the castle, the former home of the 15th-century explorer Vasco da Gama. But before things kicked off there, we enjoyed three days of more intimate gigs at an outdoor stage in the main square of the small fishing village of Porto Covo.

Sicily Insider: Kitchen, Dietary Secrets and More

Sicily is intriguing as it conjures up notions of the Mafioso culture so famously exaggerated in American movies. As I flew into Catania from Milano, I had images of crazy drivers with musical accents wearing wife-beaters (sleeveless underwear) in the heat of the summer.

The vitalidad of Barcelona (or BarTHelona, as they say) is largely down to the Spanish people themselves. They are my kind of people; relaxed, work-hard play-hard types, and advocates of wine and tapas, at any hour of the day.

We decided to take our trip over a long weekend and arrived there early afternoon on a Friday, departing on a Monday late afternoon. We thought it was a nice amount of time for a short break in the sun but we didn't realise we'd come away loving the hotel so much that we didn't want to leave!

Copenhagen is a secondary city that doesn't get the attention it deserves. Like any other large European city, it has the trappings of contemporary culture: it is home to the exquisite Royal Danish Ballet, it hosted this year's Eurovision Song Contest and it is also the centre of iconic mid-century furniture design.

How to Experience the True Venice

Stow your map. See that long, narrow, foreboding passageway off the main thoroughfare? Walk down there. Venice is a remarkably safe city, and you'll only get so far before you hit the sea, so be brave and wander without direction.

'Tis the season to creep about the attic hunting down a box no-one bothered to write 'Xmas' on 12 months ago. Traditionally, this is followed by the much-loved 'it looks squint to me' debate; a long, sour silence over whose responsibility it was to check the lights BEFORE they went on the tree; and, my particular favourite, competitive bauble re-positioning.
