Funchal, Madeira — 27 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Funchal: Engenhos do Norte (in Porto da Cruz), Miradouro do Pico Vermelho (in Ponta do Pargo) and Machico (Clube de Golf Santo da Serra & Miradouro Francisco Alvares Nobrega). Spend the 19th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Cabo Girao, take in the awesome beauty at Pico do Arieiro, see Off-Road Tours, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanická zahrada Madeira.

A feast for the senses, the subtropical paradise of Madeira Islands draws nearly a million visitors annually. This Atlantic archipelago, known to many as the "Islands of Eternal Spring," lies some 850 km (530 mi) southwest of the Portuguese mainland. Volcanic in origin, the islands feature dense pine and laurel forests and richly cultivated mountain slopes. The two populated islands boast an extensive network of irrigation channels, bringing much-needed fresh water to the coastal farms and resorts. Hiking trails following these water channels make even the remotest areas accessible, beckoning to adventurous trekkers and impassioned nature lovers. Base your holiday in the city of Funchal, the archipelago's capital and biggest city.
