Funchal — 7 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: Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz) and Canical (Miradouro da Ponta do Rosto & Ponta de Sao Lourenco). Spend the 25th (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Pico do Arieiro, take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Palace Madeira, take in the dramatic natural features at Cabo Girao, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

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.
