Funchal

— 4 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.
You've added Mercado dos Lavradores, Ponta de Sao Lourenco, Praia de Machico, and other attractions to your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Cabo Girao, explore the striking landscape at Valley of the Nuns, and head outdoors with Eira do Serrado.

For reviews, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Funchal trip itinerary maker tool.

Porto to Funchal is an approximately 5-hour flight. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Funchal when traveling from Porto in September, with lows around 24°C. On the 18th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading 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.
