Faro is a city in the Algarve region of Portugal.
A popular destination for sun-seekers from northern Europe, Faro has a reputation as being an overrun party beach town for much of the year. Visitors who use it as a base to explore the more remote areas of the Algarve in the off-season will experience much more of what southern Portugal has to offer; but those looking for no more than a tan and cocktails won't be disappointed.
In winter, it is a beautiful, peaceful corner of Southern Europe with plenty of sun bleaching the white-washed town with Iberian and Moorish-influenced architecture. The people are more friendly than other parts of Europe. Many speak a bit of English, but are very appreciative of any attempts at Portuguese.
What to do in Faro
Centro Historico - The Old City, or Cidade Velha, is a well-preserved section of town off the harbor with cobblestone streets and 18th century Portuguese and Moorish-influenced architecture. It is great place for a peaceful and almost private walk back in time in an area that has been virtually untouched by modernity.
Ria Formosa - Take a boat trip into the Ria Formosa - a nature reserve that stretches along the tip of Portugal into Spain.
Praia de Faro - This beach is several kilometers long and so should never get crowded, even in the height of summer. Most of the beach is gently sloping though it can take a sudden dip in places. There are the usual beach-side stalls and a public lavatory, but no showers.
Faro Jewish Heritage Centre, Oficially established in 1851, the Faro Jewish Cemetery is the only remaining vestige of the first post-Inquisition Jewish presence in Portugal. It served as a burial place for a thriving 60 family community. The Jews of Portugal fled the Inquisition from the end of the XVth century and settled in Gibraltar and North Africa.
Walking in the center is enjoyable and distances between highlights aren't too large. Faro's Old Town is, to use that hackneyed phrase, a little gem. It's small, quiet and wonderfully atmospheric.
Some travel info by bus
There is a daily bus service from Lisbon and Porto in the north of Portugal, as well as from Madrid and Seville in Spain. A fare from Lisbon to Faro costs either 18 EUR (for a "Expresso" connection takes about 4 hours, stopping in Albufeira, Vilamoura and Quarteira) or 19 EUR (for a "Expresso Qualidade" direct connection which takes just over 3 hours and includes a movie projection, a stewardess, and a mini-bar service) and can easily be bought at the bus station just before boarding. This bus station in Lisbon is next to a subway stop called Jardim Zoológico.

Discovery car rental tried very hard to extract a further 50 euro from me as an airport tax. the chap before me paid this. my voucher clearly stated that this was covered in the rental and as a very regular car hire renter i stood my ground and they eventually back down. my concern is many would not. i've never heard of an airport car hire tax before and at 50 euro this is a huge amount given the value of the actual rental which was only 51 euro. the price was great as was the paper work and the car excellent so very happy. i'm just very concerned now at additional taxes and fees car hire companies try to charge on arrival. its a complete rip off.
