I have gathered my favorites  in this article , where no difficult hiking is required. Those Madeira secret places are not completely “secret” (nothing is), but you will find a lot fewer tourists than at other attractions for a better experience. Cable cars, viewpoints, towns, beaches… Let’s discover Madeira, off the beaten path. Map at the end of the article.

Before my tips + photos, here are my favorites for Madeira:

secret places Madeira hidden gems Pin

#1 – Calhau da Lapa – hidden gem in Madeira

Calhau da Lapa, secret place in Madeira

  • About Calhau da Lapa –  As Madeira becomes increasingly popular, hidden secrets like this beach become too. But since it is only accessible on foot with 700 stairs or by boat, it reduces the amount of people visiting it. This is quite a unique place in Madeira.  The walk down will take you to a waterfall and then to the beach at the bottom of the volcanic cliffs. The particularities are the fishermen’ cave-houses inside those colorful cliffs.

Calhau da Lapa cave houses

  • Location – South Coast 20min drive West of Funchal
  • How to get there – Free access Walking path with 700 stairs (quite steep at the end)
  • Practical tips – Don’t forget that you will have to walk back up those stairs. Bring your swimsuit, this is considered one of the beaches with the clearest water. See more photos

#2 – Achadas da Cruz cable car

Achadas da Cruz

  • About the Achadas da Cruz cable car –  Many people visit Porto Moniz for the natural pools, especially on a day trip. But most don’t venture in the area of Porto Moniz. Yet, there is so much more to see. One of the attractions (now being promoted more in the town of Porto Moniz) is the Achadas da Cruz cable car. It claims to be the steepest in Europe. And it is an impressive experience to ride it down to the bottom of the cliffs! 451m of height over 600m – It is written that the beginning has a slope of 98%. See more photos

Achadas da Cruz cable car

  • Location – West coast of Madeira 20min drive from Porto Moniz
  • How to get there – Smaller roads, but nothing difficult Medium-size carpark You must have a rental car .
  • Practical tips – Hours – 8am to 11:30am / 12:30pm to 7pm – everyday Price – 3€ return ticket Travel time is 5min Cafe and toilets at the top

#3 – Porto da Cruz

Porto da Cruz museum factory

  • About Porto da Cruz –  The villages of the South Coast attract a lot of tourist. They often have better weather. However, I have a soft spot for the village of Porto da Cruz, on the North coast, where you will find more locals. The views from the seafront promenade are stunning with the mountain Penha de Aguia on one side, and the cliffs towards Ponta de Sao Lourenço on the other. It is home to seawater pool and an old sugar cane factory.

Porto da Cruz

  • Location – North Coast  15min drive from Machico, 30min drive from Funchal
  • How to get there – East drive, close to the fast road exit
  • Practical tips – Bring your swimsuit to enjoy either the beach or the seawater pools (small fee) I enjoyed staying in this peaceful village, very practical for all the East hikes and attractions –  See the accommodations in Porto da Cruz

#4 – Rocha do Navio

Rocha do Navio

  • About Rocha do Navio –  Considering how many people visit the Santana traditional houses, I was surprise by that far less people visit Rocha do Navio. I hope it stays protected a little from overtourism. This is my favorite cable car on the island ( see my list ), but even if you don’t take the cable car, the view from the top is stunning. However, if you do decide to go down, know that there are more waterfalls to admire along the way. Learn more on my Rocha do Navio article

Rocha do Navio 2

  • Location – North Coast, in Santana 40min drive from Funchal
  • How to get there – Smaller road but nothing difficult Very small carpark. If full, park along the houses.
  • Practical tips – Hours – 9am to 1pm / 2pm to 5pm (to 6pm on weekends) Price – 5€ return ticket – cash Toilets at the top 5min ride

#5 – Banana Route in Madalena do Mar – Madeira Secret place

Banana Route, Madeira off the beaten path

  • About The Rota Banana –  One of the main fruits cultivated on Madeira is the banana. You will see plantations everywhere. In the village of Madalena do Mar, there is even a small walking route where you can enter those plantations and discover the local farming industry with the irrigation system. This is quite a fun experience.

Banana Route in Madalena do Mar 2

  • Location – Village on the South Coast, close to Ponta do Sol 30min drive from Funchal
  • How to get there – Easy to access and to park
  • Practical tips – 1.9km lopp (1.2mi) but you can enter and get out at many points, so you can see as much as you want.

#6 – Cave in Poças do Gomes

Cave in Poças do Gomes

  • About Pocas do Gomes –  Despite being located in a touristy area, at the end of the Lido promenade, near many hotels and restaurants, I was surprise not to see more people in the tunnel and admiring the cave. Yet, this is a unique experience. Normally, you can only see sea caves from a small boat. But here there is a tunnel connecting the promenade to Praia Formosa. And in the middle of it, there are 3 windows that allow you to admire the sea-cave!
  • Location – South Coast, West of Funchal
  • How to get there – Parking in the area, taxi…
  • Practical tips – 100m long tunnel Free access Closed at night

#7 – Road ER 228 incl. Miradouro da Terra Grande

Miradouro da Terra Grande

  • About Miradouro da Terra Grande –  As people take the fast roads to the main attractions, there are many beautiful roads and viewpoints that are off the beaten path in Madeira. You can enjoy the scenery alone! One of my favorite viewpoints (see my list) is Miradouro da Terra Grande. Located on the magnificent road ER228 (worth driving fully), it offers 180° views towards the mountains and the sea.  Sadly, my pictures don’t do it justice.
  • Location – Middle of the island, close to Ribeira Brava
  • How to get there – Driving ER228 (not taking the tunnels) – mountain road, but nothing difficult

#8 – Praia Ilheus Ribeira da Janela – Madeira off the beaten path

Praia Ilheus Ribeira da Janela

  • About Praia Ilheus Ribeira da Janela –  I can’t believe this place does not see more people! Everybody just rushes to Porto Moniz which is only 5min way, but few stop here. Yet, it is an easy short stop to admire the sea stacks.  There is even a staircase into the cliffs to the higher viewpoint. More photos on  my Ribeira da Janela article .

Praia Ilheus Ribeira da Janela - Madeira off the beaten path

  • Location – North Coast, 5min East of Porto Moniz
  • How to get there – No difficulties Large carpark
  • Practical tips – Large pebbles on the beach – not easy to walk around – easier to get up the stairs to get the view. Toilets at the carpark

#9 – Garganta Funda

Garganta Funda

  • About Garganta Funda –  It is one of the highest waterfalls in Madeira – around 140m (460ft) tall. The Ribeiro River drops from the cliffs of Ponta do Pargo and makes its way to the ocean. This is really a “hidden secret” of Madeira. You have to know it is there. But there are some road signs.
  • Location – East coast of Madeira 1h drive from Funchal, 30min drive from Porto Moniz
  • How to get there – The last 500m are on a small road. There is no real carpark, you can park 3 cars at the departure point of the trail10min return walk 
  • Practical tips – No facilities In Summer, the waterfall can dry up completely

#10 – Seixal sand beach & Natural pools

Seixal back sand beach

  • About Seixal –  It is less off-the beaten path than other destinations. But I am surprised that not more people visit this place. There are people, but not as many as you would expect considering how beautiful it is. At sunrise, for example, I was all alone. Once again, everybody rushes to Porto Moniz. Seixal is home to natural pools (including a magnificent lava arch) and a black sand beach at the foot of the lush cliffs.

Seixal natural pools

  • Location – North coast, East of Porto Moniz 15min from Porto Moniz
  • How to get there – Easy access to town and beach However, to reach the pools it is a very steep path downhill (with stairs for part of it)
  • Practical tips – Free access to the pools Toilets and café near the pools
  • See more photos

#11 – Miradouro do Paradeo – Valley of the nuns views without tourists

Miradouro do Paradeo

  • About Miradouro do Paredao –  When visiting the Valley of the Nuns (Curral das Freiras), most people head to the famous viewpoint Eira do Serrado. I love it too. But if you are looking for a lesser visited viewpoint, head to Paradeo. The views are even more impressive, in my opinion. You are more on the side, but you are also higher. You can really appreciate how steep the walls of the valley are. 
  • Location – North of Funchal, 30min drive inland
  • How to get there – The last portion of the road is on a mountain road. I saw people write it was difficult to drive. I disagree. There are sharp bends and it is steep, but otherwise the road is in excellent condition and there is hardly any traffic. So you can take your time and it is easy.
  • Practical tips – Free access

I don’t drink coffee

But I also like other drinks and sweets! Do you like the free content you find on my blog? All my tips and practical information, without intrusive advertising…

#12 – Miradouro do Cortado

Miradouro do Cortado

  • About Miradouro do Cortado –  Miradouro da Portela is the most famous viewpoint overlooking the mountain Penha de Aguia. And it is beautiful. But I prefer the view from the other side, from Miradouro do Cortado. I enjoy it because of the view of Faial and its promontory, and the view all the way to Ponta de Sao Lourenço, the tail of Madeira.
  • Location – North Coast Between Faial and Santana
  • How to get there – Easy to stop with a couple of parking spaces in the road bend. Access by rental car only.  

Madeira hidden gems – Map and selection

What is off the beaten path.

I know that some people will disagree. The notion of the “secret” or “off the beaten path” is a question of perception. I selected places where I was alone or almost alone. But, as Madeira tourism grows, those will become increasingly popular too.

SECRET MADEIRA: All You Need to Know BEFORE You Go (with Photos)

Pico do Arieiro Hike on Madeira: How to visit PR1

Pico do Arieiro Hike on Madeira: How to visit PR1

Unquestionably, one of the most stunning hikes on Madeira is the PR1 trail from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo, the highest point on the island. Walk along narrow paths on sheer ridges, down mountain staircases, and through rocky tunnels, soaking up some of the most spectacular views. Once you summit above the clouds, it really feels as if you’re on top of the world! Discover everything you need to know about doing the Pico do Arieiro hike in Madeira, Portugal .

Pico do Arieiro Hike (PR1)

With endless views over steep Jurassic valleys, lush greenery, and the Atlantic Ocean, it’s safe to say the Pico do Arieiro hike on Madeira is one of the best things to do on the island.

pico do arieiro to pico ruivo hike madeira

Whether you start out early or catch the breathtaking panoramic vistas during sunset, nothing tops watching the clouds sweep in between the towering mountains. This is by far one of the most beautiful things we’ve ever done! 

Pico do Arieiro Hike on Madeira: How to visit PR1

Madeira, in general, is famous for its stunning natural landscapes, from the lush forests to rugged mountains and scenic coastlines. All the major hikes in between have a PR number, with the PR1 ‘Pico to Pico’ hike being by far the most famous. 

hiking trail pico do arieiro to pico ruivo madeira

Officially, this is an in-and-out trail, meaning you walk to Pico Ruivo and back, but you also have the option to book transportation for a one-way tour . Details: 

  • Total km: 13 km roundtrip or 7 km one-way
  • Time: 4 – 7 hours
  • Elevation: 900 meters
  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Entrance: Free to visit, no tickets.

The Hiking Trail of Pico do Arieiro, Madeira

This 13-kilometer route (or 6,5 one-way) takes you along some of the most impressive vistas on the island, winding its way from Pico do Arieiro through lush valleys and past jagged mountain peaks up to Pico Ruivo and back. 

pico do arieiro madeira best hike

The real showstopper, however, is when the area fills with a thick sea of clouds, creating an almost fantasy-like atmosphere. While you climb above 1,500m (4900 feet), witness the sun breaking through the fog, coloring the pathway – this is a must-see on your Madeira itinerary!

Tip: There are no toilets along the way, so make sure to use the ones at Pico do Arieiro before starting your hike.

hike madeira pico do arieiro to pico ruivo

Note: There is an observation deck at Pico do Arieiro that many people visit for the view (at Miradouro Juncal). You’ll also notice many tours here during sunrise. However, most are here just to soak up the ocean views; not everyone actually hikes the trail.

google maps phone

Mirador do Ninho da Manta 

Once you start the hike, the first official viewpoint is Miradouro do Ninho da Manta (also known as ‘Buzzard’s Nest’). You’ll find this little balcony section after walking along well-maintained stone steps that lead down into the valley. 

sunrise hike pico do arieiro madeira

This point looks out over the green scenery, with the ocean in the background. It’s only 1.2 kilometers down the trail and is a great place to snap some photos. 

Tip: Many people who gather at Miradouro Juncal don’t make it this way, so if you come for sunrise, we personally recommend watching the sunrise from there to skip some crowds.

viewpoint pico do arieiro hike madeira

Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo

Pico do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo are two of the highest peaks in Madeira, with the Ruivo Peak being the highest. The PR1 trail continues from the miradouro over ledges, through tunnels (five in total), and eventually wraps up around the mountain. Most of the trail toward Ruivo is actually downhill, but you’ll have jaw-dropping sights all along the route.

mountain hike madeira

Pass Pedra Rija, an open area and a great spot to stop for a minute, and notice all the flowers lining the trail. You might also spot little red-legged partridges native to Madeira (please don’t feed them).

red-legged partridges bird madeira

The tunnels you pass are all relatively short (the longest one is about 150 meters), but it’s recommended to bring a headlamp for these sections. All along the route, you’ll find signs pointing toward the endpoint: Pico Ruivo. 

Note: Though challenging, the sections with a steep drop or along mountain ledges always have railings on the side!

tunnel pico do arieiro to pico ruivo hike madeira

How Long is the Pico do Arieiro Hike?

The Pico do Arieiro hike in Madeira typically takes about 3-4 hours if you’re continuously walking. However, it can quickly extend to 5-7 hours if you prefer a more leisurely pace and more stops to sit, relax, and soak up the views over the island and ocean. 

sunrise view madeira

As it’s an in-and-out trail, the route doesn’t loop; it goes from peak to peak with significant elevation changes (a total of 900m elevation gain). Depending on your fitness level, this can take some time. 

Tip: If you don’t feel like hiking the entire route to Pico Ruivo but still want to witness those incredible views, walk from Pico do Arieiro to the viewpoint ‘Miradouro do Ninho da Manta’ (40 minutes). Here, you have a viewing platform looking over the incredible valleys.

best hike madeira pico do arieiro

Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo One-way or Round Trip?

Depending on your stamina and how you’ve arranged your transportation, you can choose between a one-way or round-trip hike on the PR1 trail from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo. The round-trip option is more challenging as you’ll have to walk the same route back to the starting point, mostly uphill. 

route pico do arieiro hike

Alternatively, for those seeking a less strenuous option, numerous transfer services are available to drop you off at the trailhead and pick you up from Achadas Teixeira (close to Pico Ruivo). This way, you can do the ‘Pico to Pico’ hike one way. 

Book your transfer service in advance online

The Best Time to Hike Pico do Arieiro

This hike is one of the best things to do in Madeira , and it’s very popular to start walking before sunrise. It rarely gets cold in Madeira, with an average temperature of 20 – 25 degrees Celsius year-round. However, remember that temperatures are much lower in the mountains due to their higher elevation. During our visit in April, it was 20 degrees in Funchal and 5 degrees at Pico do Arieiro.

Tip: Wear layers on your hike, as the weather can be unpredictable here. It can be very cold, warm, windy, cloudy, or clear. Therefore, it’s worth checking the Pico do Arieiro webcam or Windy.com to see what the weather is like.

what to wear pico do arieiro hike madeira

Hiking During Sunrise or Sunset?

The PR1 hike is both stunning at sunrise and sunset, and each has its charm. Watch as the sunrise slowly pops above the horizon, shining through the morning fog that drifts around the mountains. If you want to visit during this time, make sure to arrive at your viewpoint of choice 30 minutes before the sun comes up. 

The downside of the sunset hikes is that if you plan on doing an organized tour, this is not an option at the time of writing. Only sunrise tours are offered at this moment.

madeira pr1 hike pico do arieiro to pico ruivo

We did the PR1 hike both at sunrise and sunset. Although both are equally gorgeous, hiking later in the day is slightly more peaceful than early in the morning, with hikers more spread across the trail. We recommend starting about 6 hours before sundown to catch the best soft golden glow if you visit during this time.

How to Get to the Pico do Arieiro Trailhead

Although it’s deemed one of the island’s best hikes, there’s no public transportation to the Pico do Arieiro trailhead. However, you can get there by car, taxi, organized tour , or transfer .

By Car or Taxi

From the capital city, Funchal, it’s about 30-40 minutes of driving to reach the trailhead parking lot. The road up is a beautiful journey, twisting and turning between the mountains. A taxi costs about 40 EUR from the city to Pico do Arieiro. 

We recommend to rent a car in Madeira through Sunny Cars with free cancellation and insurance included. Book your rental car here .

Pico do Arieiro has a lower and an upper parking lot. Choose the lower lot if you plan on doing the entire hike, as that’s for day parking. The upper parking lot has a maximum parking time of just one hour. 

how to get to pico do arieiro madeira

From the lower parking, walk up to the trailhead (2 minutes) via a little path instead of the road for safety. You’ll notice a wooden sign on the opposite side of the road that reads ‘Pico do Arieiro 800m’.

path from parking pico do arieiro hike

All parking is free, so come early. When you arrive later in the morning (after 10 AM), chances are higher you’ll have to park further down the road and walk longer.

By Organized Tour or Transfer

If you don’t have your own transportation, there are a few other options besides hopping in a taxi. If you’d like to do a guided day hike, you can book a tour with a guide . 

Alternatively, book a one-way transfer if you plan on hiking only one way. This way, you’ll be dropped off at the trailhead from Funchal and picked up again once you reach the other peak (Pico Ruivo).

Tour description

Madeira small group tour.

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Atlantic’, Madeira is an island of luscious vegetation, transparent lagoons and spectacular natural scenery; thus it is an excellent destination for outdoor activities! Together with your local guide, enjoy a light hiking excursion along the beautiful levadas (irrigation channels), explore the island’s diverse flora and see some of the most breathtaking views in Portugal.

Taylor Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour Setlist Features A Huge Change-Up

The singer resumed her record-breaking tour in Paris, France.

Taylor Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour Setlist: New Songs & Cuts

It’s me, hi, I’m the setlist, it’s me — and welcome to the Eras Tour , again . Taylor Swift resumed her record-breaking Eras Tour in Paris, France, on May 9, and it came with quite the twist. For the first time in the tour’s run, the singer significantly upheaved her setlist , rearranging the order of the show’s ten acts representing her landmark studio albums to squeeze in a new era.

As fans have suspected for months, Swift added a whole new section to the show including songs from her latest album The Tortured Poets Department , all of which are being performed live for the first time. Understandably, Swift had to cut a good number of songs, including “The Archer” and “Long Live,” to add seven Tortured Poets tracks into her show’s usual run time of three-and-a-half hours.

She’s also changed the running order of the eras significantly. While she started with the Lover era and transitioned into Fearless as usual, she then went into the Red era sooner than expected. ( Evermore usually had followed the Fearless act.) She even combined the Folklore and Evermore eras into one act. (They’ve always been called “sister albums” after all).

Swift has made the occasional change on the road, like switching out her Folklore track “invisible string” for “the 1,” adding “Long Live” to the Speak Now act, and performing “Nothing New” and “no body, no crime” at shows where duet partners Phoebe Bridgers and HAIM opened for her. But this is the first time she’s amended the setlist to this extent. Read on for Swift’s revised Eras Tour setlist.

Taylor Swift is about to go back on tour: Here's what to expect on the Eras Tour in Paris

secret madeira tours

After a two-month break, Taylor Swift is revitalizing her titanic Eras Tour in Paris, and fans believe there are changes coming to the show.

If you are wondering where she's playing, if there will be changes and how to score tickets, here's everything we know.

And if you're new to the Eras Tour party, you can get caught up on the first 83 shows here .

When does the Eras Tour start again?

Swift kicks off the European leg of her tour on Thursday, May 9, in Paris. She will perform Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, as well, in the City of Light.

What are Taylor Swift's tour dates in Europe?

There are 69 shows left in the Eras Tour: 51 in Europe, nine in America and nine in Canada.

The European leg stretches from May all the way through a five-night stand at Wembley Stadium in London in mid-August.

See a complete list of international dates here .

After she wraps up in Europe, Swift will stop in Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis before wrapping up in Canada.

See the remaining U.S. dates here .

What is the Eras Tour set list?

The Eras Tour has featured a massive 45-song set list you can check out here . But speculation is swirling it won't look the same when Swift takes the stage in Paris.

Will Taylor Swift add 'The Tortured Poets Department' to her set list?

The tortured poet has been on hiatus keeping her stamina up by releasing a double album of 31 tracks. The 2-hours-and-2-minutes project broke a number of Billboard records as the superstar did zero press to promote it. Fans flocked to stores and streaming services to listen to all the songs from "Fortnight" to "The Manuscript."

Although the singer has not confirmed whether her 11th era album will be added to her Eras Tour set list, she did post a YouTube shorts video with two scenes that sent Easter egg decoders into a frenzy. In one of the shots, the singer is next to a railing where a "TTPD" logo appears to be (at 0:11). In the succeeding shot, her back-up dancers perform holding canes and wearing top hats, something they have not worn previously.

Swift's dancers and bandmates posted to their Instagram stories as they left for France last week. The singer did not appear at two media events with her boyfriend Travis Kelce: the Kentucky Derby and a Formula 1 race in Miami , Florida. Patrick Mahomes, Kelce's friend and Kansas City's quarterback, attended the car racing spectacular with his wife, Brittany.

Can I still get Eras Tour tickets?

Swift's show is completely sold out in Europe and North America. There are resale sites with tickets, but be wary of scams. The best way to avoid getting swindled is continuously checking links on Swift's website . There are some for resale on the sites verified by her camp.

Singapore was a hotbed for fans who traveled thousands of miles only to get turned away at the venue. In Tokyo and Australia, last-minute ticket drops happened a few days — without announcement — ahead of the shows.

Miami, New Orleans and Indianapolis — the three U.S. cities Swift is visiting in the fall — have some of the heftiest price tags with Canada closely behind. In may be cheaper to travel to Warsaw, Poland, or Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Here's a list of cities with the cheapest resale tickets, according to travel website  Islands.com .

10. Vienna, Austria — total average cost: $1,089, safety score: 69.72

9. Cardiff, U.K. — total average cost: $1,061, safety score: 61.83

8. Lyon, France — total average cost: $1,047, safety score: 44.3

7. Lisbon, Portugal — total average cost: $1,028, safety score: 70.15

6. Munich, Germany — total average cost: $1,000, safety score: 78.88

5. Paris, France — total average cost: $971, safety score: 41.83

4. Stockholm, Sweden — total average cost: $935, safety score: 53.86

3. Hamburg, Germany — total average cost: $903, safety score: 57.51

2. Gelsenkirchen, Germany — total average cost: $749, safety score: 51.33

1. Warsaw, Poland — total average cost: $712, safety score: 72.98

Who are the opening acts?

Paramore launched the Eras Tour in Glendale, Arizona, in March 2023, so it's fitting the American rock band is opening the tour's second year. The act will open for Swift for 51 shows across Europe . The band was dubbed the 2024 Record Store Day global ambassador and surprised fans in Nashville the weekend following the release of "The Tortured Poets Department."

When the tour comes back to North America in October , Swift's opening act will be Gracie Abrams.

Where can I watch if I don't have tickets?

The Eras Tour is one of the first tours that has been followed, globally, by thousands of fans on digital platforms. Fans dedicate part of their concert experience to livestreaming as Swift performs. A few Swifties have learned how to host their own shows over social media including Tess Bohne , known as the livestream queen. Bohne goes live for (almost) every show pulling streams from Instagram and TikTok. When a livestream goes down, she fills the time with banter.

On YouTube, user @TaylorSwiftHockeyBro also livestreams the three-hour show, and on Twitch, @folkleric , is a host fans follow.

There is also an app, Swift Alert , that notifies fans who only want to watch certain eras like the acoustic, surprise set. The app sends out push alerts if there are any major announcements.

What secret songs are left?

For the past 83 shows, Swift has played an acoustic set she customizes at each stop with a guitar and piano performance. In 2024, the Eras Tour star added mashups of her songs for each stop. Here are the songs she has yet to perform:

  • "Taylor Swift" (debut album): "Mary's Song" and "A Perfectly Good Heart"
  • "Fearless": "The Way I Loved You," "Change," "Superstar," "We Were Happy," "That's When," "Don't You" and "Bye Bye Baby"
  • "Red": "Girl At Home," "Ronan," "Forever Winter" and "Run"
  • "1989": "Sweeter Than Fiction"
  • "Reputation": "I Did Something Bad"
  • "Lover": "London Boy," "Soon You'll Get Better" and "It's Nice to Have a Friend"
  • "Folklore": "Hoax"
  • "Evermore": "Happiness" and "Closure"
  • "Midnights": "Paris" and "Glitch"
  • "The Tortured Poets Department": all 31 tracks

Will Taylor Swift perform in 2025?

There have been many rumors that Swift will continue her show in 2025, but they are only rumors. Nothing has been announced for next year, and as of now, the tour will end in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Dec. 8.

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour's 4 Hour Version Must Surely Be Coming Now, Right?

  • The latest Eras Tour show in Paris was filmed, hinting at a potential new concert movie release that features songs from The Tortured Poets Department .
  • Taylor Swift rearranges her entire setlist to include 7 songs from Tortured Poets .
  • Fans anticipate another extended version of The Eras Tour movie that includes the Tortured Poets era.

At her Eras Tour kick-off concert in Paris, France, Taylor Swift added new songs from her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department , to the already extensive setlist . As a result, fans are wondering if yet another version of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie is on the horizon. The highest-grossing concert tour of all time, The Eras Tour , which began in 2023 with its North American leg, has made upwards of $1 billion. With a record-breaking opening weekend, the subsequent Eras Tour movie concert garnered over $267.1 million.

The Taylor's Version movie concert was the most complete viewing experience until now.

For its theatrical release, The Eras Tour Movie cut songs , but Swift has since added tracks back into the mix with each release, from the for-purchase version to the Disney+ streaming-exclusive cut, the 48-song The Eras Tour Movie (Taylor's Version) . Clocking in at over three hours, the Taylor's Version movie concert was the most complete viewing experience. Of course, the seven Tortured Poets Department songs that Swift debuted at her first Paris show has changed that. An impressive review of Taylor Swift's musical "eras," the revamped show would make for an exciting new concert movie .

Taylor Swift's First Eras Tour Show In Paris Is Being Filmed - Is A New Movie Coming?

Signs at swift's paris show indicate a new (& more complete) movie is on the horizon.

Fans who attended Taylor Swift's first Paris show were encouraged to smile — not just because they were about to enjoy an unforgettable concert, but because the performance was going to be captured on camera. According to The Eras Tour update page, Swift's May 9, 2024, show was " officially... filmed and recorded " (via X). Notably, The Eras Tour movie was filmed across several nights during Swift's Los Angeles residency. It's possible the musician's team captured footage for promotional reasons, but, given the mastermind's past plans, it seems like something bigger will come of the recordings .

The European leg of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour kicked off on May 9 in Paris, France.

After the limited theatrical release of The Eras Tour movie , the film became available to rent for a period of time. Roughly five months after the concert movie hit theaters, it premiered on Disney+, becoming the streamer's biggest 2024 hit so far. As of May 2024, there's no physical version of The Eras Tour Movie available for purchase . Known for her many album variants, it's surprising that the artist hasn't put out a physical Blu-ray of the show. With the more complete version of the show, which boasts songs from Tortured Poets , being filmed, everything could change.

Taylor Swft: The Eras Tour movie features a highly talented roster of backup dancers and backing vocalists who accompany Swift onstage at every show.

How Taylor Swift Changed The Eras Tour Setlist To Include The Tortured Poets Department

Swift rearranged her entire eras tour setlist for ttpd.

In order to accommodate the seven tracks that Swift selected from her 31-song Tortured Poets double album , the 14-time Grammy-winning artist rearranged her entire Eras Tour setlist. Given the concert's staggering length, Swift was also forced to cut some fan-favorite tracks . While The Eras Tour still opens with the Lover era, it now moves around through the artist's discography as follows: Fearless , Red , Speak Now , Reputation , folklore/evermore , 1989 , The Tortured Poets Department , and Midnights . Sandwiched between Tortured Poets and Midnights are Swift's secret songs — two acoustic renditions of random tracks that didn't make the official setlist.

Not only were the sister projects [ folklore and evermore ] combined into one era, but Swift cut several songs from those beloved albums.

Undoubtedly, the folklore and evermore Eras took the biggest hits. Not only were the sister projects combined into one era, but Swift cut several songs from those beloved albums to make way for her latest release, including the emotional — and impressively staged — "tolerate it" from evermore . These cuts made way for the addition of a whopping seven songs from The Tortured Poets Department , including the album's lead single, "Fortnight," and stand-out viral hits like "Down Bad" and "I Can Do It with a Broken Heart."

Every Taylor Swift Album, Ranked From Worst To Best

Taylor Swift has released 11 albums (and re-recorded four) over the course of her 18-year career, some of which are better than others.

Why An Extended Version Of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Movie Makes Sense

Swifties who won't see the tortured poets department era live could experience it in movie form.

Although Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor's Version) seemed like it would be the definitive cut of the concert movie, the addition of The Tortured Poets Department era means that the at-home viewing experience is now incomplete. It's incredibly likely that Taylor Swift 's team to release an updated version with the Tortured Poets setlist wedged into the show — or coming in at the end as a surprise "after credits" feature. It only makes sense for the musician to release another extended version of the movie, as it would allow fans who went to previous tour stops to see the latest and greatest iteration of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour .

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is a film rendition of the colossal worldwide event that sees the legendary pop star hit the stage in a specially curated film event. Performing the hits of her over seventeen-year career in music, The Eras Tour highlights Taylor Swift and her team as they put on a show of a lifetime.
