Discover a treasure trove of Portuguese history, culture and flavors on a four-hour fully guided stroll around Funchal that includes green gardens, Madeira wine tasting, the market area and Old Town exploration. Hit the road on foot alongside a friendly and knowledgeable local guide for a street-side trip around the capital city of Portugal's Madeira archipelago. In Santa Catarina Park you'll wander pathways lined with flowerbeds and trees from all over the world. Stand in front of centuries-old Funchal Cathedral to admire its predominant gothic style. Enter the cellar of Blandy's Wine Lodge to explore 200 years of Madeira wine, from growing the grapes to storing and bottling the wine, before sipping a glass of your own fortified wine. Soak in the sights, sounds and aromas of the Farmers' Market where local merchants sell, flowers, fruits, vegetables and fresh fish. Among the historic cobblestone streets of Old Town you'll delight in about 40 minutes of free time to admire 15th-century buildings and the town's famous painted doors, or you might go souvenir shopping or dine on authentic Madeiran cuisine. Meet back up with the group for a motor coach drive back to your ship.
