Long famous for its Port wine, iconic bridges and UNESCO World Heritage historic center of Ribeira, this historic city is redefining itself with a number of new developments including the Casa da Musica designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas in Boavista. There are scheduled and cut price flights to Porto from many European cities. The city is now a favorite for romantic weekend breaks from all over Europe. March is a good time to visit as the weather begins to warm and the summer crowds are yet to arrive.
Madeira - Madeira is a jewel of an island, ideal for a holiday in any season. Located off the coast of Africa, it is an island of great natural beauty, famed for its rich flora, fine wines, thatched cottages, waterfalls and rugged mountain hikes. The picturesque capital, Funchal, offers an historic old town, beautiful churches, a casino and a range of superb, five star, luxury hotels. "Madeira" means "wood" in Portuguese and the laurisilva forest that remains on the northern hills of Madeira once covered the whole island. This incredible forest cover on the island is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. What's more the pleasant climate can be enjoyed year round.
