Fodor's Review

The sleek, Austrian-engineered cable-car service has 39 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. The appearance of swooping birds of prey, scampering mountain goats, and new blooms on the trees is cheering. Those without much of a head for heights will be pleased by the offer of free samples of Madeira wine at the gift store at the top.
