In 2016 we visited the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores (Portugal). We enjoyed our time meandering around the small distinctly European city of Ponta Delgada, visiting several wonderful eateries, and spending a day touring the island. Our favorite place to eat (we went twice) was called A Tosca, a splendid Portuguese tapas restaurant. For our island tour, we booked a full day private tour with Rui Medeiros - Azores Private Tours and would HIGHLY recommend it. One of his drivers took us around the entire island, highlighting the gorgeous Sete Cidades, as well as the Furnas hot springs. The icing on the cake was the cost of the trip. We flew round trip direct from Boston for around $500, our hotel was $65/night (and was fantastic) and food/drink were beyond reasonable. We can't wait to go back!
