A Taste of Azores
Sete Cidades, the seven cities region, is dominated by an impressive five-mile-wide caldera. Within the crater lie two volcanic lakes -- one green and the other blue. See the lakes from the highest point and also at close quarters. The village of Sete Cidades is at the edge of the blue lake, surrounded by forest-covered walls. Enjoy the scenic beauty and some free time in one of the oldest villages of the Azores.
On the way back to Ponta Delgada, you will also see Santiago Lake, with its own unique style.
From a hotel in Ponta Delgada enjoy an enviable view of the city's port and marina while savoring a small tasting of Azorean wines and cheeses .
