Winner of the 2015 World Travel Award for Leading Island Destination, Madeira is “an exuberant botanical garden” with a balmy, subtropical climate and breathtaking scenery. We’ll settle into Funchal (Madeira’s capital) with accommodations at the five-star Pestana Casino. Enjoy a walk through the colorful market, the outstanding Botanical Gardens and sample world-famous wine at the Madeira Wine Company. We’ll have free time to explore the narrow streets of old town or the café-lined marina; discover the painted doors of Rua de Santa Maria or take a cable car ride up the mountain. Highlights of the next two days include: Camara de Lobos—a working fishing village beloved by Winston Church—the stupendous sea cliff at Cabo Girao, Rabaçal Nature Reserve, the natural swimming pools at Porto Moniz, the pastoral village of Santana and a traditional Espetada (cooked-over-an-open fire) dinner. Leaving behind our “paradise island,” a short flight brings us to mainland Portugal and our home for the next three nights, Cascais, on the Portuguese Riviera. We’ll visit the pilgrimage site of Fatima, medieval Obidos, the glorious walled city of Sintra and take a full-day excursion to historic Lisbon.
