Not our first time on Madeira but what a pleasant surprise again. Beautiful weather in January, lively atmosphere in town, people eating and drinking outside on terraces, streets green and lush with flowers. We took a hop-on-hop-off bus that shows in 2 hours quite something of Funchal and surroundings and is in fact a bargain for the 12 euros they charge. As are drinks and food on the island. If in any way possible, we'll come back here (again) !
