Send a tip on your most fascinating city for the chance to win a £200 holiday voucher | Travel


“Sometimes I prefer one city, sometimes another,” wrote the late great travel writer Jan Morris in the Guardian in 2009. But, she added: “There are places in the world where my responses have not been fickle, and the chief of these is Trieste,” which she described as “a place to drift through, a place on a fold in the map, neither quite one thing nor another”. This week, we’d like to hear about a city that has a particular pull for you – somewhere without the obvious big-tick tourist attractions, but that always casts “a tantalising spell”.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

Keep your tip to about 100 words

The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.

We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.

The competition closes on 13 September at 9am BST
