Worth a trip. Lots to do at the top. Church, gardens and great views. 15 minutes to get to the top. 11euros single trip. Nice restaurant right by the cable car with a great view.

Heights are not my thing to be honest but the wife wanted to go so I just gritted my teeth and got on with it.

We had a perfect day for it with no wind so the whole experience was great and would recommend even if your a bit dodgy with height.

Avoid the days were there are cruise ships in port as it will get busy and if you buy your ticket for the cable car and botanical garden at the cabin on it the promenade you avoid the ticket queue at the cable car booth i.e you skip the line.

It’s great to see the whole of Funchal from the cable car which runs from the harbour to Monte which is 500 metres above sea level - near the tropical gardens. The view is amazing

Great value for money

We got a return ticket
