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.
Get outdoors at Safari Madeira Island and Madeira Mountain Expeditions. Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte and Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Funchal with an excursion to Azul Diving Center in Canical--about 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Colegio dos Jesuitas do Funchal, take in the exciting artwork at Caravel Art Center, kick back and relax at Praia de Garajau, and get outside with Eira do Serrado.

Plan a trip to Funchal easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

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 January, plan for a bit warmer days and much warmer nights in Funchal: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 17°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can 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.
