Located on the southernmost tip of the Portuguese Algarve, Faro is a hidden gem which is often overlooked in favour of better-known beach resorts. The historic city has something for everyone - meandering streets dotted with outdoor cafes, ancient Roman ruins and sun-bleached sandstone beaches. Flights to Faro are available from across Europe, with access from most major UK cities. Faro Airport is a gateway to the Algarve, providing access not only to Faro itself but also to the golden beaches of Lagos, the renowned golf courses of Alvor and the elegant architecture of Portimão. Faro really does have something for everyone, and something to suit all budgets.
Faro combines the quiet elegance of an ancient city with the youthful buzz of a university town. Booking a flight to Faro will offer you a perfect combination of beautiful countryside, impeccable beaches, lively nightlife and a strong cultural scene in the city’s broad choice of theatres. Return flights to Faro are available from across Europe for anywhere between £100 and £200, making it an attractive destination for an affordable family holiday.
As well as the unspoilt coastline for which the Algarve is famous, Faro offers a wealth of historical treasure to explore. The city is a spectacular artefact in itself. Its history is written into its very architecture, with ancient Roman murals, medieval Moorish ruins and a beautiful cathedral dating back to the thirteenth century all captured within the city walls. Within easy driving distance of the airport, the saltpans and marshlands of the protected Parque Natural de Ria Formosa create the perfect haven for a range of birdlife, and also a perfect escape from the hustle of Faro's centre.
The Algarve’s mild climate makes it an ideal destination at any time of year, with warm winters and long, lazy summer days. The area is particularly popular between May and August. Anyone searching for cheap flights to Faro will want to book their travel in the spring and autumn, outside of peak tourist season. The area is well-served by a number of budget airlines including Monarch, Vueling and TAP Portugal, as well as more high-end options such as Lufthansa and British Airways. Easyjet offers cheap tickets to Faro throughout the summer, meaning that, even in peak tourist season, great offers can be found on Faro flights.
Faro Airport is linked to the city by a regular bus route and a number of less regular coaches, which get travellers to the heart of the city in about twenty minutes. Public transport is very cheap, with a single fare costing just a few euros. From the city, other coaches are available for onward travel. Taxis are also easily available, and a fare to your hotel in central Faro will cost around €10. It is also worth checking transfer options with your hotel, as a number of resorts offer a shuttle service.
