Ponta Delgada — 7 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 discover tucked-away gems like Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes and Off-Road Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Islet of Vila Franca do Campo (in Vila Franca do Campo), Furnas (Pico do Ferro Viewpoint & Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas) and Nordeste (Viewpoint of Ponta da Madrugada & Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego). There's still lots to do: get outside with Jardim Botanico Antonio Borges, get great views at Ponta da Ferraria Ferraria, tour the pleasant surroundings at Salto do Prego, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Santo Cristo.
