Monte Cable Car - Review

Fly over winding streets and mazes of houses which look like tiny models on a living map. A gentle, silent ride exposing expanses of green, neat parks, ponds and lakes shimmering like mirrors are what you experience during a ride on the Monte cable Car ride. The view of wide green belt, tiny toy cars, spires of churches, will take your breath away. Patchwork of red, blue and green will amaze you of what lies hidden below.
