Description

World-class footballer Cristiano Ronaldo calls this stunning city home, and now you get to kick it here too! This easy-peasy ticket puts Funchal's sites at your fingertips for a whole 24 hours. From colorful cobbled streets to top museums and lookout points, it's also a photographer's dream!

Catch the hop-on hop-off bus around Funchal and you'll already be getting the best views in town. See museums, cathedrals, gardens and more, and meet the locals in a huge bustling market. You'll have the history in your ears thanks to your audio guide, while you soak up panoramic views.

Funchal's history goes back over five centuries! The early Portuguese settlers colonized the coast where fennel (funcho) sprang up from the soil in abundance. The food is more elaborate today but you can still find local touches in the many restaurants.

Stay on board for the full tour, or hop off and choose your own adventure! Want to taste the famous local tipple? Don't miss the Madeira Wine Museum. Take a walk in a sheltered garden brimming with flowers, or the woods, which smell of eucalyptus all-year-round.

Take a boat trip too! You won't forget the views coming into Funchal harbor. It's one of the most beautiful harbors in the world, and some say it's as nice as Rio de Janeiro.
