Funchal

— 30 nights
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sao Vicente (Sao Vicente Caves, Igreja Paroquial de Santa Isabel, &more), Canical (Pico do Facho viewpoint & Miradouro da Ponta do Rosto) and MIradouro do Véu da Noiva (in Seixal). Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Monte Palace Madeira, learn about winemaking at Blandy's Wine Lodge, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and look for all kinds of wild species at Ponta de Sao Lourenco.

Pearl of the Atlantic
Madeira, the largest island of the eponymous archipelago, serves as one of Portugal's top year-round holiday destinations. Although it draws a growing number of visitors, the island retains much of its relaxed atmosphere and provides an alternative vacation idea for travelers seeking a tropical paradise still relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. The capital city of Funchal, settled in the 15th century, attracts the biggest crowds and serves as a convenient stopover for trans-Atlantic cruise ships sailing from the Caribbean. When you get tired of exploring Fuchal's lively streets and beaches, hop on a boat tour of the archipelago for some whale watching or big game fishing.
