Funchal, Madeira

Funchal & Botanical Gardens

DETAILS

  • 4
    hrs Estimate Duration

Your tour begins with a visit to a typical market, in Funchal’s center, where an infinite variety of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and regional items can be seen. A few steps from the local market you'll have the chance to visit the embroidery factory and taste the world-famous Madeira wine. The tour continues to the village of Monte, where you'll have time to explore this small village perched up in the hills overlooking Funchal. After this visit, you'll have the opportunity to experience a voyage by cable car with nature at your feet! Made up by 12 cabins of eight seats each, this unforgettable voyage to the Botanical Gardens will take about seven minutes and offers its visitors a new panoramic route with privileged sights of not only Funchal’s bay but also over the River of Joao Gomes, a place of rare and exotic beauty made up by the nucleus of Laurissilva forest.


Since the 17th century, Madeira Island had been waiting for a botanical garden, a dream that came true in 1960. Located less than two miles from the center of Funchal at Quinta do Bom Sucesso - a private Quinta belonging to the Reid’s family - where the climatic conditions are much in favor of exuberant vegetation, the Botanical Garden boasts harmonious forms, contrasting colors and more than 2,000 plants. Throughout the gardens you can find the plants labeled with their scientific names, common name and origin.


Need to Know:

Note: A jacket is recommended as Madeira has a microclimate. Cable car is not suitable for passengers with walking difficulties as access is similar to a ski lift; i.e. cable car does not stop for boarding, rather it moves in slowly. Not recommended for persons with walking difficulties. This tour involves an approximately five-minute walk from the local market to the embroidery factory and an extensive amount of walking at the gardens.
