Funchal weekend breaks or Madeira holiday
The Portuguese island of Madeira, slightly off the edge of Europe but it's capital city Funchal is a great choice for out of season long weekend breaks when you are looking for warmer holiday weather. At most times Funchal is a wonderfully relaxed city but during festivals they put on a carnival show way out of
proportion to the size of the city. Take Funchal breaks at New year and experience one of the most amazing fireworks displays in the world. Take a short tour around Funchal via open top bus and then take the cable car to Monte to view the full panorama of the city and harbour, berthed with cruise ships. In the evening enjoy a Portuguese steak washed down with Madeira wine and finish the night with a flutter in Funchall casino !
