If there is anywhere I would like to revisit Funchal does it for me. Great place, I love it, all of it.

The gardens

These gardens are a must to see, we went in January and even at that time of year they were quite spectacular

Birds of paradise

Fantastic flowers all year round, and you can buy them to bring home.

    Great description, tips & photos. Looks like a great place to visit at Christmas, and that Reid's Hotel is really enticing!
