The capital of the island of Madeira for more than 500 years, Funchal represents a laid-back city made popular by its historical sites and climate.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Zona Velha and Barbeito Madeira. Take a break from Funchal with a short trip to Dolphin & Whale Watching in Calheta, about 34 minutes away. Make the 27th (Mon) a memorable day with a climbing tour. Spend the 29th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Blandy's Wine Lodge, take in the dramatic natural features at Cabo Girao, take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Palace Madeira, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.
