Faro

Trip Planner Europe  /  Portugal  /  Algarve  /  Faro District  /  Faro

Portuguese Venice

The most well-known city in the Algarve, Faro boasts a cliffside location with popular beaches and a thriving cultural scene. The regional capital is full of parks, squares, walkways, and cafes, as well as many historical sites. The archeological museum, palace, cathedral, bone chapel, and Roman ruins have made what was once a small fishing village into a popular tourist destination. Visit the city's sandy beaches by day and its bars and theaters by night, which are especially lively due to the local student population. Plan a trip to Portugal easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Where to stay in Faro

As the region's biggest city and one of the country's national hot spots for nightlife, vacations, and the great outdoors, Faro features a huge array of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels. Most of the larger international chains sit within the blocks surrounding the city harbor, and although staying in one can be pricey, it puts you within easy walking distance of the city's selection of bars, restaurants, clubs, and other establishments. For more budget-friendly accommodations check out a family-run inn, a bed and breakfast, or the opportunity to simply rent an extra room from a local--all of which are extremely common in Faro. These accommodations may be a little farther outside the city center, but you'll get a quiet nook in a nearby residential neighborhood away from the city bustle.
