Visiting Madeira's capital
can prove to be a great experience, especially if you visit it with the help of our Funchal car hire
services as your main means of transportation through the city. The city has been around for quite a while and it has changed a fair amount over the years.
Current day Funcha
l is a far cry from its fennel growing, pirate fearing days of old; it's a very modern and cosmopolitan city, populated by a lot of top tier restaurants and extremely high quality hotels.
This degree of development has been possible due to Madeira
becoming a tourist magnet in the past decades, but the city itself is situated in something of a natural amphitheater, in an extremely lush, green environment, surrounded by banana plantations and wonderful gardens.
The city is easily reached by air, from both mainland Portugal as well as the rest of the European continent, and once you touch down here, you can employ our Funchal Airport car rental
services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport, which is extremely convenient.
Another way of getting here is via cruise ship, the capital has been a main port of call for many Atlantic Cruise ships, in fact the Liner harbour is more or less located in the middle of the city. The approach to the harbour is one of the most spectacular in the world, much like the one in Rio de Janeiro, and it has become a sort of tradition for many European liners to call here on their maiden voyage.
Visitors to Funchal
can enjoy a wide array of activities, ranging from diving, swimming, surfing and other water and sun related activities to taking excursions along the coast and through the eucalyptus smelling mountain woods.
There are of course many other things that you can see and do while in Funchal
, and possibly the best way of seeing and doing as many of them is with the help of our Funchal car hire
