The Island Capital, Funchal is set in a natural amphitheatre with a southern outlook to the magnificent ocean. Visitors to the Old Town will find beautiful gardens, stunning architecture, bustling cobble stone lanes and a convivial, vibrant atmosphere. The newer 'Lido' district is where many of the modern hotels are to be found, along with a wide array of cafes, bars and international restaurants. It is worth noting Madeira is a mountainous island and both Funchal and Canico, while flat in places, do have a number of elevated areas.
