Funchal

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.
Funchal is known for parks, wildlife, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Palace Madeira, skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, soothe aching muscles at The Universe of Inner Alchemy, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico do Arieiro.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Funchal tour itinerary planning site.

London, UK to Funchal is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. When traveling from London in December, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Funchal: temperatures range from 23°C by day to 18°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.

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.
