Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel — 3 nights

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Lagoa das Furnas and Nossa Senhora da Paz. Visiting Praia de Santa Barbara and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, tour the pleasant surroundings at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade, and explore the activities along Furnas.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada trip planner.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
