Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel — 6 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ponta Delgada: Islet of Vila Franca do Campo (in Vila Franca do Campo), Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija, Igreja de Santa Ana, &more) and Terra do Pico (in Mosteiros). Fill the 24th (Wed) with unforgettable perspectives with a canyoning and rapelling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lagoa das Furnas, experience rural life at Plantacoes de Cha Gorreana, and don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade.

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.
