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.

We could have stayed here and not cruised any further. Stunning Funchal has got so much to do. Weather was fantastic. We did the cable car to Monte & the botanical gardens & the wicker basket ride down, we didn't do these in an excursion but on out own
