If you visit Funchal be sure not to miss a visit to these wonderful gardens . Set on a steep downward slope , which certainly adds to the slendour , the gardens are simply beautiful . There are ample opportunities to sit and just relax , Cafes with hot and cold drinks , and plenty to eat . As you wander down the slopes the views over Funchal and the harbour are spectacular . Entry to the gardens is 5 euros per person , great value which includes the aviaries of exotic parrots . You can get there from the harbour by cable car , but the cost is 23.75 euros return , expensive . A much better option is to take the local bus that stops , and waits , right outside the gardens , and costs pence.
