Teleférico da Madeira

Teleférico da Madeira Review

The sleek, Austrian-engineered cable-car service has more than 40 cars that travel from Funchal's old town waterfront up to Monte at 1,804 feet above sea level. The trip takes 15 minutes one way, and there are great views to enjoy as you float silently up and over the city.
