Many people say that Faro – the capital of the Algarve – is located on Europe’s most scenic coast, offering beautiful, long sandy beaches that stretch away into a horizon framed by rocks on either side. Faro is a charming old town with cobbled streets and leafy parks. Its location in the centre of the Algarve makes Faro the perfect starting point for day-trips and extensive exploration of this wonderful region.

Right now we have no departures. That may be because we do not have any direct flight to your destination right now. Continue to the timetable to find suggestions for the best travel route.

Museu Municipal

Museu Municipal, also called Museu Arqueológico, contains mainly archaeological finds. Located in the former Nossa Senhora da Assunção monastery inside the ring-wall, the gardens date from 1540 with beautiful, two-storey cloisters which form the heart of the museum. Among the most remarkable items is a Roman floor mosaic from the 4th-century with the head of the Roman god Neptune in exquisite detail.

Praça Dom Afonso III, Faro
Faro Cathedral

From the outside, Faro’s cathedral is low and squat, a mixture of Renaissance and Baroque as a result of protracted renovations and additions following the devastation of war and natural catastrophes. The interior is equally mixed but with interesting features, including a large organ from the 18th-century with Chinoiserie decoration.

Largo da Sé, Faro

Portugal can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Faro International Airport

Faro’s international airport is located six kilometres to the west of the city, right by the sea. Buses 14 and 16 depart regularly for the centre of Faro, and the trip takes approximately 20 minutes. You can buy the ticket directly from the driver, but remember that it is good to have some small notes or the exact amount of money. A taxi ride takes just under fifteen minutes.
