Information Not Currently Available
Approximately 4 Hours
Departing the ship, panoramic sightseeing by coach takes you through eucalyptus and mimosa trees in the heart of Funchal's diverse countryside. Along the way, the views open out considerably on both sides until the road comes to an end at the summit of Pico do Arieiro at 5,937 feet in elevation. On a clear day, the viewpoint here offers magnificent vistas across a sweeping land- and seascape.
Head back down to the village of Santo da Serra, known for its beautiful houses and gorgeous yards. You will stop for a light refreshment and time to take in the bucolic surroundings.
Hop back aboard the coach for the drive back to Funchal. There's time to visit a wine lodge and taste Madeira wine -- the product for which the island has been famous the world over for more than 400 years.
