What to expect in Faro
Faro town is a beautiful, elegant palm-fringed town, with sweeping boulevards, tiled squares where locals gather for coffee and gossip and dazzling white churches that peek through archways and out from corners of cobbled streets. There is a beautiful marina where yachts bob on the crystal clear waters; white sandy beaches ideal for sunbathing and sea swimming, a stunning medieval historic old town with cafes, boutiques and charming gift shops to explore and a whole host of curious museums, little galleries, theatres and natural wonders from alluring lagoons to verdant green parks. Culture vultures can revel in Roman and Moorish ruins from cathedrals to palaces while those seeking nightly entertainment will not be disappointed by the lively nightlife from tavernas and restaurants to theatre, bars and clubs.
The Algarve is a year round destination. Spring and summers are long and warm while winter is short but also warm. When the north of Portugal is cold and snowy, holidaymakers are still enjoying the sun on the Algarve. Winter is also ‘off season’ and so is the cheapest and quietest time of year to visit.
The city itself is not expensive to visit with adult tickets to water parks costing from €15*, a cappuccino from €2*, a budget breakfast from €3*, a dinner for two from €20* and a beer from €2*. There is also a range of accommodation including apartments, B&Bs and luxury hotels.
