    “Shopping center across the street and several good restaurants within walking distance. Restaurant Kadamadeira is recommended. There is also a large supermarket in the mall and various places to drink.”

    “We stayed a bit outside of the center in Funchal. Funchal offers great shopping, a charming old town with a variety of gastronomic offers, as well as many cultural highlights. Even in upscale restaurants the prices are cheaper compared to Germany. If you eat something away from the center, it's really cheap. The public transport system is well developed and you can get there by bus within the city (but there are also some well-situated car parks). The harbor mile and the old town invite you to the evening strolling. Be sure to visit the market hall in Funchal! Conclusion: great city with nice people and touristic not overrun.”
