What to do in Faro

You're probably totally inundated with recommendations on things to do in Faro. Don't worry, we know how to help. We've mocked up a three-day itinerary with some of the must-sees in the Algarve. Feel free to tweak it accordingly and always make room for spontaneous plans - you never know what you'll stumble across while you're out and about!

Day 1: Step back in time to Faro’s Old Town

There are settlements in Faro dating back to the 4th century BC, so to say it’s a city with a rich history would be an understatement. Whether you're into archaic ruins and museums or not, a trip to Faro should always include a visit to the prestigious Old Town. There's an undeniable charm to this graveyard of relics and the beauty of the remaining architecture is really something to behold.

Roman passages lead to hidden treasures and quaint cafes. There are also ancient fortress walls to marvel at, an impressive cathedral and cobbled streets. Then, as you pass through the famous Arco da Vila gateway, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the old town. There you can watch the world go by while you sample local delicacies from a vantage point of a rooftop bar.

Day 2: Unwind with food, drink and Faro nightlife

Faro comes alive at night. As well as an almost endless selection of bars, cafes and restaurants, you’ll find various twilight activities to keep you busy. Ultimately, though, Faro nightlife is powered by the city’s various drinking spots. If you're expecting a commercial logo on every corner, you've got it all wrong. Faro's bars are unique in character and many of them either take advantage of the city’s shoreline or offer idyllic rooftop views.

Rest assured, it’s not all drinking out there! Shops in the Forum are open until late, or you can take in a show at the local theatre. If you're looking for something a bit more interactive for fun-filled, laughter-heavy nights out in Faro with loved ones, there are bars with escape rooms, games consoles and all manner of retro gaming memorabilia.

Day 3: Sit back and soak up the sun in the Golden Triangle

By this point, you've already admired some of Faro's historical legacy and made the most of the vibrant nightlife. If you don’t know what to do in Faro on your final day, we have a suggestion: the beach.

The Algarve is known for its golden coastline, and Faro is no exception. Faro's 'Golden Triangle' consists of three beaches, an abundance of swanky restaurants and warm, calm waters. The three beaches within the Golden Triangle are:

An alternative is to sit back and soak up the sun at Praia de Quarteira. Or, if you're a thrill seeker as opposed to a sun-worshipper and fearful of twiddling your thumbs on your final day, Praia da Quinta do Lago is a great o/ption. This site offers a variety of water sports, including surfing, sailing and canoeing.

In order to discover the beautiful landscapes of the surroundings, you can always rent a car in Faro and travel the open road.
