As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija, Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, &more), Vista do Rei Miradouro (in Sete Cidades) and Praia Calhau D'Areia (in Ribeira Grande). Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, look for all kinds of wild species at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, and see Off-Road Tours.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada trip maker.

Milan, Italy to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Milan to Ponta Delgada. When traveling from Milan in July, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Ponta Delgada: temperatures range from 28°C by day to 21°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel to Angra do Heroismo.
