Funchal is the main city of Madeira Island and is the most populous Portuguese city outside mainland Portugal. It has a unique location on the island: a natural "amphitheatre" surrounds the city, with gentle slopes beginning at the harbour and rising almost 1200 metres. This provides a natural shelter and was what attracted the first settlers. Funchal is a cosmopolitan and very panoramic city with several splendid park areas.
Based out of Funchal, Madeira, off Portugal’s Algarve coast you can enjoy exploring the island on various shared tours and marvel at the ever changing landscapes, the stunning coastline, lush valleys, historical city center, impressive botanical gardens and lively island folklore, while staying in a comfortable hotel a stone's throw from the beach.
