One of the favourite diversions in Madeira's capital, Funchal, is to ride the cable car from the Parque Almirante Reis in the old part of the town up to the scenically beautiful village of Monte in the mountains above the city. The journey takes about 15 minutes and ends at the cableway station near the Monte Palace Tropical Garden.

The panoramic view spreads to the delightful city of Funchal and to an overwhelming landscape, where the nature's green melts with the ocean's blue. The bottom station for the cable car, is situated in the Inn Quinta do Bom Sucesso - Madeira Island - seven minutes from the centre of Funchal city.

Address: Caminho das Babosas
