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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Funchal: Sao Vicente Caves (in Sao Vicente) and Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz). The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Pico do Arieiro, get a taste of the local shopping with Caravel Art Center, see Off-Road Tours, and admire the natural beauty at Botanická zahrada Madeira.

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.
