Last year I went to Madeira to visit my friend Soraia and, not knowing that I was going to enter TAP this year, I did almost everything there is to do on the island. Little did I know that this would be the layover that I have the most, regretting to have seen so much at once, because now I do not know what to do whenever I go there. Of the things that I liked the most in Funchal was to visit the Botanical Garden and the Monte Palace Tropical Garden, both unfortunately with paid entrance, so I can not go back there whenever I feel like it.
The first garden has many endemic species of Madeira, which we did not find in the continent, and my favorite part were the succulents. Admission costs € 5.
