Funchal is a very nice and peaceful city. "Zona Velha" (Old town) is a crossbreed of small and cozy alleys where locals and tourists come and stroll during the day and enjoy beautiful and quiet evenings. You can also enjoy nightlife in a beautiful atmosphere with bars and restaurants in the old town. You will discover the artistic project "painted doors" that run throughout the streets of Santa Maria but above all the Puncha, a local drink made of rum, lemon and honey that you will find nowhere else that in Madeira.
From morning to late afternoon, you will enjoy the sight of a strange bird, the "cableway", in the sky which will take you from downtown to "Monte".
