There are various ways to reach the beautiful holiday resorts of the Algarve and the best is a taxi service from Faro airport. By choosing a private transfer service, you can be certain of receiving warm hospitality directly from inside the airport, punctual drivers, comfortable vehicles, and generally safe transfers. All this is offered at a fixed price, which is set at the time of booking. Faro is the transport hub of the Algarve, the most favoured holiday destination in Portugal. Faro overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and is separated from the latter by a lagoon. Of Arab origin, it is also a fishing port.
Faro attracts thousands of visitors every year thanks to its beautiful beaches, protected areas and cobblestone streets of the old town, which is set against a beautiful background, where time seems to have stopped. A good place to start your visit is from its marina and from there you enter the more lively areas, made up of typical shops, restaurants, and bars.
What to see in Faro
The capital of the Algarve offers a lot in terms of places to visit. In addition to the enchanting historic centre, a must for visitors to Faro, we recommend:
- Cathedral: destroyed by the earthquake of 1755 and rebuilt in a mix of different styles.
- The Ria Formosa natural park: a wonderful puzzle of lagoons, white beaches, and islets full of fauna and flora.
- The Maritime Museum: houses a large collection of miniature boats, ideal for modelling fans.
