There are four ways to go down from Monte to Funchal... Monte is 500m high, whereas Funchal is at the sea level, 5km away... Then you have to choose how do you want to go down...

My experience, Explo description: 

Toboggan : As I say, there is a big slope. One century ago, an English man imagined, to go down from Monte to Funchal by toboggan. Then, for only 10 euros, 2 people will push your sledge down on the track... No brakes... But trust them, they have one century of experience !

cable car : The cable car goes down from Monte to Botanic garden across the valley.

Buses : Buses go down using the same way as the toboggan. They have brakes, but also a motor, and they use it.

Buses : 20-21 from Funchal to Monte _ 22 From Funchal to Babosas

walk : At least, there is a trail that goes down. The beginning is a paved road. Then, the trail is made of wooden stairs, and, at the end, it goes along an aqueduct. It arrives near the botanic garden.
