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: Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz), Miradouro do Pico Vermelho (in Ponta do Pargo) and Capelinha N. S. Fatima (in Sao Vicente). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Pico do Arieiro, take in the dramatic natural features at Cabo Girao, fly like a bird with Madeira Paragliding, and look for all kinds of wild species at Laurissilva Forest.

You can plan Funchal trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

October in Funchal sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) 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.
