Yes, and we’re even suggesting that.
IN THE AFTERNOON, VISIT MONTE BY YOURSELF
Madeira cable car and toboggan ride:
After visiting the gardens, you can take the cable car to Funchal or take the opportunity to visit Monte on your own.
The Parish of Monte is considered the most beautiful in the city and home to the last reigning monarch of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
But first, have LUNCH in one of the restaurants nearby.
Then, walk to the departure of the famous TOBOGGAN, a unique means of transport for anyone who wishes an adventure ride down through the steep streets of Monte. When you have finished the ride, to return to Monte you can take a taxi. The price of the tour does not include the rides.
Visit THE SURROUNDINGS OF MONTE and its incredible attractions: a public garden and the beautiful Portuguese colonial church with the tomb of Carlos I of Austria.
Now, get ready to take the Madeira CABLE CAR Funchal to the Old Town. The last cable car ride is at 17:45.
Tip: if you want to take the toboggan, do it right after lunch because sometimes they are very crowded and there are long lines—only then, the church and the cable car.
