The old town of Faro is small but interesting. There are some really good restaurants, where a dinner for two with bottle of vine for 40-60euros. There are also some smaller restaurants and half the price. Plenty of good seafood with a large selection of...More
The old town is charming and deceptive. Strolling through the cobbled side streets you could be forgiven thinking the town was deserted mainly bumping into other tourists. Word of warning, cobblestones can be slippy and uneven so wear sensible footwear. There are many Ristorante and...More
Faro old town is quite small and just enough to see in a weekend away. However I would recommend taking the faro free walking Tour to get the most out of your stay.

Hi there, Great choice and I am sure you will have a lovely time. It's friendly and I stayed at a hostel a bus ride from town - there are two hostels on this quiet road. It is like a T shape. Basically you get a bus from town and it goes over a bridge. Then you turn right and walk a short way down. It's a house with a nice area at the back overlooking the Ria and across the road at the front there is the beach. It's called Beach Life - book direct. They are friendly and it's clean and comfortable. Female only dorm too with shared en suite and own kitchen plus a main kitchen. Happy hour and bike hire. Check them out on Facebook too. Faro was lovely and it is possible to get a bus or train to other areas including Alberfeira. I had lunch in the posh hotel - well worth it and totally fine on my own. Plus went to the tourist board performance of Fado and talk. Enjoyed walking the boardwalks and being on the long beach. Have fun. Joanna
