Most visitors to Faro simply pass through on their way to the resorts of the Algarve – which is excellent news if you do stop over.


You get this atmospheric town with its beautiful medieval architecture and stand-out seafood to yourself. Come for the beaches, of course, but stay for this enjoyably unpretentious, pretty historic town and its natural surroundings.

Getting active

From beautiful beaches to stunning architecture, when you fly to Faro you’ll never be stuck for places to visit!

Explore the city by using the Comboio Turística, the tourist land train, which makes getting around Faro not only easy, but fun! You’ll be guided around the city’s most notable landmarks and visitor attractions so you can hop on and off wherever you choose.

Our favourite part to visit is Faro’s old town, a small enclave that is home to iconic white washed and terracotta tiled homes, as well as little restaurants that are the perfect places to eat traditional treats.

If you’re looking for beaches to relax on, check out some of the islands surrounding Faro’s lagoon. Only accessible by boat, these sandy beaches offer a little glimpse of paradise for the perfect holiday getaway.
