Nice, one of France’s most popular destinations and capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera, sits on the pebbly shores of the Baie des Anges. Founded by the Greeks and later a retreat for 19th-century European elite, the city has also long attracted artists. Also joining Kuwait Airways line up of exotic destinations this summer is Larnaca, a port city on the south coast of Cyprus. It’s known for Finikoudes Beach, a sandy strip in the city centre backed by a palm-lined seaside promenade. Buzzing bars line the waterfront at Mackenzie Beach. Just offshore, the MS Zenobia wreck is a popular dive site. Most notableis the 9th-century Church of Saint Lazarus which contains the tomb of the revered saint said to have been raised from the dead by Christ.

Also introduced this summer is the must travel destination of Vienna, Austria’s capital, which lies in the country’s east on the Danube River. Its artistic and intellectual legacy was shaped by residents including Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud. The city is also known for its Imperial palaces, including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence. The elegant Ring Road around the InnereStadt district features government and public buildings including the 18th-century Burgtheater, where the Vienna State Opera presents numerous productions yearly and hosts the annual Vienna Opera Ball, one of a series of glittering city events. 

Further Westward is Málaga, a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its high-rise hotels and resorts jutting up from yellow-sand beaches. Looming over that modern skyline are the city’s 2 massive hilltop citadels, the Alcazaba and ruined Gibralfaro, remnants of Moorish rule. The city’s soaring Renaissance cathedral is nicknamed La Manquita (“one-armed lady”) because one of its towers was curiously left unbuilt.

Built as a church in the 13th century, the city’s Hagia Sophia has served as a hospital and a museum, but today is a mosque with restored ceiling frescoes.
