The Algarve is one of Europe's most popular tourist regions, attracting more than 10 million sunseekers to enjoy its warm weather and fine beaches every year. Faro is the area's historical centre, with an atmospheric old town, a fascinating Jewish Museum and a cathedral which offers wonderful views across the port. But Faro is often more of a departure point to explore the Algarve, which blends natural beauty and tourist facilities. Faro has an excellent selection of golf courses that can be played all year-round, water parks, and vibrant nightlife supplied by an 8,000 strong student population. The surrounding region also includes the delta of the Ria Formosa - a beautiful region with unspoiled island beaches that can easily be reached by ferry. For those who want to get away from it all, or enjoy a traditional resort-based holiday, Faro is a great place to visit.
