With the turquoise lagoons of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa and a glittering line-up of sandy beaches all within a short drive, Faro is often passed over in favour of its spectacular surroundings. Spare the time to linger in the city, though, and you’ll be rewarded with a charming medieval quarter packed with eccentric museums and a vibrant nightlife culture powered by Faro’s huge student population. A sprinkling of lush parks, pavement cafés and classy designer shops adds a sophisticated edge to the Algarve capital.
