Funchal — 5 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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Madeira Film Experience and Museu da Baleia da Madeira. Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte and Colegio dos Jesuitas do Funchal will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse in Ponta do Pargo (about 1h 5 min away). There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on Madeira Mountain Expeditions, trek along 25 Fontes Falls, view the masterpieces at Caravel Art Center, and pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Clara Convent.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 1st (Fri) to allow enough time to fly 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.
