Funchal — 10 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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse and Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption. Get outdoors at Valley of the Nuns and Pico Ruivo. Venture out of the city with trips to Church of Sao Pedro (in Ponta do Pargo), Levada Ribeira de Janela (in Porto Moniz) and Canical (Ponta de Sao Lourenco, Miradouro da Ponta do Rosto, &more). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Madeira Explorers, make a trip to Miradouro Pico Dos Barcelos, see the interesting displays at Frederico de Freitas Museum, and delve into the lush surroundings at Laurissilva Forest.

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.
