Madeira, an atlantic island with mediternian influence. Its Capital Funchal is 1000 km away from Lisbon,the capital. Blue and green are famous in madeira. Home town of Christiano Ronaldo. Rocky island with some white sandy beaches. Outstanding Gardens, parks, and Forests, the Laurisilva. Amazing Amazing Amazing infrastructure. One of the most fascinating features of Madeira is the vast network of open-air water canals that cover the island bringing water from the mountains to the plantations below. Known as Levadas, these irrigation channels pass through breathtaking scenery, waterfalls and hidden parts of the island.
Climate : Very mild average temperatures, 22ºC in the summer and 16ºC in the winter, and a moderate level of humidity. Which means you can visit Madeira arround the year. Best time is september. Myself i did November and it couldn’t be better.
Suggested Itinerary and attractions not to be missed:
It’s a 1 week family, couples or friends destination. Nature, History, Beaches, Diving, trekking and alot more activities. The week will pass as its a weekend trust me 🙂 .
It’s not close, so my recomendation is to cut some days which not less than 5 of your main vacation if your planning to go to London or Paris so you shorten the distance and you take it easy.
For best 1 connection flight make it through Amsterdam or Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
For best 2 connection flight make it through Milan-Malpensa, London-Gatwick, London-Stansted, Manchester or Lisbon
