Funchal — 9 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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Climbing Tours and Madeira Explorers. Get out of town with these interesting Funchal side-trips: Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse (in Ponta do Pargo), Levada Caldeirao Verde (in Santana) and Alberto's Store (in Machico). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, take an in-depth tour of Madeira Story Centre, and see the interesting displays at Madeira Film Experience.

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.
