Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

— 5 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.
Arruda Pineapple Plantation has been added to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Lagoa Verde / Lagoa das Sete Cidades (in Sete Cidades), Furnas (Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, Poca Da Dona Beija, &more) and Islet of Vila Franca do Campo (in Vila Franca do Campo). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Viewpoint of the Ridge, and look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.

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.
