Funchal

— 6 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.
Visiting Cabo Girao and Laurissilva Forest will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Blandy's Wine Lodge and Caravel Art Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Ponta de Sao Lourenco (in Machico), Igreja Do Senhor Bom Jesus (in Ponta Delgada) and Igreja Paroquial de Santa Isabel (in Sao Vicente). Next up on the itinerary: see exotic creatures in open habitats at Safari Madeira Island, get outside with Madeira Mountain Expeditions, take in the awesome beauty at Pico do Arieiro, and examine the collection at Universo de Memorias Joao Carlos Abreu.

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.
