Funchal — 4 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.
You've added PR16 Levada Faja do Rodrigues, Parque Florestal das Queimadas, Casas Tipicas de Santana, and other attractions to your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Madeira Sidecar Tours and Santa Clara Convent. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Pico Ruivo and Madeira Film Experience. Venture out of the city with trips to Canical (Prainha do Canical & Miradouro da Ponta do Rosto) and Levada Caldeirao Verde (in Santana). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Garajau, take in the spiritual surroundings of Igreja do Colegio Sao Joao Evangelista, take in the dramatic natural features at Valley of the Nuns, and make a trip to Faja dos Padres.

Lisbon to Funchal is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. While traveling from Lisbon, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Funchal, ranging from highs of 30°C to lows of 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) 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.
