Things to do in Faro 

  1. Take a walk through Faro's fascinating Old Town. These cobbed streets offer up a slice of the city's history, with medieval buildings and remnants of Moorish rule.
  2. If you're having trouble getting your bearings, jump on the tourist train. This fun train journey leaves from outside the tourist office on Rua da Misericórdia every hour between 10am and 5pm (except 1pm), and ends here too.
  3. Situated near the airport, Praia de Faro is the town's main beach. It's a fantastically long and attractive stretch of golden sand, but can get very crowded in summer so venture elsewhere in the Algarve if you're looking for seclusion.
  4. If you fancy venturing underwater, book a diving trip with a trusted company like Hydroespaco. It's a great way to see Faro's diverse sealife. If you'd rather keep your head above water, many companies run boat trips too.
  5. Don't miss a visit to the stunning Se Cathedral, whose site has Roman and Moorish roots and whose architecture is an enticing mish-mash of Gothic and baroque styles.
  6. Learn more about Faro's history at one of its many museums and galleries. The Municipal Museum, a former 16th century convent, is a great place to start.
  7. In town for a few days? Be sure to see a performance at Teatro Lethes, one of the region's most celebrated arts spaces. Teatro Lethes regularly hosts dance, music and drama performances. Its website offers further details but is only available in Portuguese.
  8. The Rio Formosa Nature Reserve, located between Faro and Olhao, is one of the Algarve's most prized attractions. This protected lagoon landscape is a great place to see local birdlife, and excursions can be arranged from Faro year-round.
  9. For a relatively small place, Faro is teeming with great places to eat and drink. Try a glass of chilled white port, the drink of choice in the town, and follow with a plate of grilled local sardines.
  10.  Golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice in Faro. Stay in the city and venture out to one of its many first-class golf courses to relax amidst breathtaking Algarve scenery.
