Cable car provides a nice trip up the hill. One way ticket 11 euro, round trip is 16 euro. It is also a great experience to take a Monte Toboggan (basket ride) down. It is one of Funchal's main tourist attraction. Made primarily out of wicker ad two wooden runners, driven by two men (carreiros) dressed in white. The Monte Toboggan ride starts near the Nossa Senhora do Monte Church. Ride is about 2 km down.
It is really a “must-do” during your visit to Madeira Island.
