Ride the Madeira Cable Car from Funchal to Monte, a civil parish that is surrounded by amazing views of the city from over 700 feet in the air. Once there, you’ll tour Our Lady of Monte Church and see its beautiful interior with a statue of Our Lady of Monte, the patron saint of Funchal, sitting above the altar. The church also contains the tomb of Emperor Charles I, the last Hapsburg monarch, who died in exile in Madeira in 1922. After your visit, take a thrilling toboggan ride, also known as a “snowless sled ride” — a tradition in Monte since the early 19th century that consists of riding in a wicker basket chair set on runners. After your sled fun, you’ll move on to a Madeira wine lodge that features some of the world’s oldest and most complex wines. Learn about the different types of Madeira wines and sample two varieties. You will also have an opportunity to purchase some wine before heading back to your ship.
