As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
You've now added Amazing Tours to your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Quinta da Jardinete Vineyard and Igreja de Sao Miguel Arcanjo. Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo. Venture out of the city with trips to Praia Calhau D'Areia (in Ribeira Grande), Mosteiros (Mosteiros Beach & Piscinas Naturais) and Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara and pause for some photo ops at Estatua Goncalo Velho Cabral.

Fresno, USA to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Fresno to Ponta Delgada due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Fresno in January since evenings lows in Ponta Delgada dip to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Angra do Heroismo.
