We are in Funchal for one day (a Sunday) and want to go to Monte. My wife doesn't do cable cars so the idea is we take a bus. There seems to be a reasonable bus service but can anyone advise how long the bus trip takes.
I don't have the exact time but its only about 15-20 minutes by the town bus. If you look at most photos of Funchal that are taken from the seafront looking up at the town, the church at Monte is usually prominent - it's the white one with two towers situated centrally, high on the hillside above the town.
