Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

— 6 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Sao Nicolau Church (in Sete Cidades) and Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija, Caldeiras Vulcânicas, &more). Spend the 5th (Sat) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Santo Cristo, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade.

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.
