Madeira, 'the Floating Gardens'
Madeira is the Garden of Eden of Portugal, an island located 600km west of Morocco in the mid-atlantic Ocean. The scenery of the island and its volcanic mountains, combined with the vast gardens and technicolour vegetation, have given Madeira its nickname, 'The Garden of Eden'.
The island's capital, Funchal, is notorious for its old-world colonial chamr; white-eashed buildings and black-sweep churches decorate cobblestone streets the backstreet are packed with family-run taverns, which also happen to be the best place to sample some of Madeira's signature dishes.

Some areas of Funchal has a sophisicated line of high street shops and brands, world-renowned hotels and a choice of extravagant cocktail bars amongst its restraurants.
