Funchal

— 7 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 out of town with these interesting Funchal side-trips: Ponta de Sao Lourenco (in Machico), Sao Vicente Caves (in Sao Vicente) and Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz). There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Palace Madeira, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico Ruivo, see Off-Road Tours, and stroll around Parque de Santa Catarina.

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

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.
