We’ll start our tour by heading to the beautiful viewpoint of PICO DOS BARCELOS. Here you’ll look at an incredible view of the whole city of Funchal, including the bay and mountains. Next, we’ll drive you to EIRA DO SERRADO through dramatic and spectacular views. Once at the top, you’ll enjoy a stunning sight of the “Nun’s Valley” and the Central Massif surrounding it. Our next stop will be the Parish of MONTE, considered the most beautiful in the city and home to the last reigning monarch of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. First, we will visit the lovely Portuguese colonial CHURCH and the tomb of Charles I of Austria. Then we will 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. The price of the tour does not include the ride. BOOK YOUR SEAT NOW!
