    Arriving in Faro

    Your Nice-Faro flight will land at Faro Airport, which is just seven kilometres from the city centre. To get there, you have several options:

    • The bus: lines 14 and 16 take 15 minutes to get from the airport to the city, and operate from 05:00 in the morning until past midnight. The airport is not the final stop on the route, so make sure you take the bus in the right direction. Don’t go to Praia de Faro, the beach, but to Faro, the city!
    • A taxi: it costs approximately ten euros or a little more, excluding luggage, to get to the city centre. However, make sure you confirm the price before you start your trip.
    • A hire car: a good solution if you want to explore the Algarve. There are seven car rental companies in the Arrivals hall at the airport.

What to do in
Faro ?

Of course, people come to the Algarve to make the most of its beautiful beaches, with their mix of Atlantic and Mediterranean waters. And it’s hard not to fall in love with its little fishing villages, with their humble, white, picture-postcard houses. However, a stay in the southernmost region of Portugal would not be complete without a visit to its capital, Faro. This is a city on a human scale. With its unbelievably charming old neighbourhoods, its whitewashed buildings, the storks on its rooftops, its quaint cafés and its gourmet restaurants, it’s absolutely adorable!

    • Make an entrance! Go through the Arco da Vila, the superb waterfront gateway: the perfect way to start your discovery of the old town.
    • Wander through the streets of Faro’s old town. Discover a church, from the largest, the Cathedral of Faro (Sé de Faro), which was once a mosque, to the smallest, for example the Misericordia or Nossa Senhora do Carmo.
    • Add a little culture to your trip with a visit to the Museu Arqueologico. The building alone, a magnificently restored 16th-century former convent, is worth seeing!
    • Lounge on the beach. Where? On the Atlantic coast, the best beaches include Bordeira, Aljezur, or Tonel near Vila do Bispo. For Mediterranean waters, head for Marinha Beach near Lagoa, which is said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
    • Go to Tavira, one of the Algarve’s most charming and authentic towns. Then make the ten-minute water bus trip to the fabulous beaches of Tavira Island.

In April, you can already start shedding those layers, with temperatures regularly reaching 20°. Spring is especially wonderful because nature is in bloom: towns, villages and the countryside fill with flowers for weeks on end. Summer is hot and lively: there are folk festivals and food festivals all over the region, in Faro, Olhão, Silves, Portimão… Autumn is a quieter time for tourism, but very popular with nature lovers, since the weather remains fine right up until the final months of the year, or even beyond.
