It is the fastest and most relax way to get to the top, as it gives you the best views of Funchal and into the houses below. We took both the bus to the top and the cable car and both have their good and the bad. The bus was packed and it was going left and right on the hills and sometimes little too close to the edge :) it was a fun ride but if you can not stand for 20 min then it could be a problem. But the good thing was it only cost EUR 4 round trip. The cable car cost around EUR 16 for round trip and here you can relax and enjoy the view with some good photos :)

Which one do you prefer? :)

Well worth €10 ticket. Views excellent. Look at reviews as to what will suite you once at the top.
Our visit was on Good Friday so unfortunately toboggan down was closed

Worth the ride but don't expect too much when you get up there. Also in March last cable car back is 17:30
