Funchal is fantastic! Really loved our day here. You must take the cable car to the top. The views are amazing on the way up and at the top. We got the toboggan ride back down - so much fun! Cable ride was €11 one way. Toboggan €30 for two. It's a must to do if you come here!


Despite numerous visits to Funchal, the island capital never ceases to enchant. A ten to fifteen minute walk over mainly flat surfaces will bring you into the centre. Visit the fruit and flower market, take the cable car up to Monte and come back down on the famous wicker baskets. Taste the world renowned Madeira wine, enjoy the year round floral displays...the list goes on.

Loved it so much to do and never realised how beautiful Madeira was.


One of our main attractions on the cruise. A beautiful Island. We did the ‘ Taste of Madeira and Cable Car (Funchal) excursion and also the not to be missed Toboggan ride. This excursion included visits to Gardens and wine taste and visit a lace making shop. A n excellent 4 hour trip, well organised.
