Small in size but rich in history, culture, and natural beauty, Portugal features contrasting landscapes that include long beaches, lush vineyards, verdant valleys, and rolling hills dotted with tiny settlements where old traditions still prevail. The country's serene interior, often overlooked by foreigners, remains largely unspoiled by mass tourism and offers visitors a chance to discover this less-trodden part of Europe at their own pace. Ripe for leisurely adventures on foot or by bicycle, Portugal's fertile countryside boasts well-preserved medieval castles and outstanding wineries, producing some of the world's finest ports. The country's cities offer a lively culinary scene known for its many award-winning restaurants, topping the itineraries of foodies from around the globe.

Faro District travel guide

Beaches · Nightlife · Theme Parks
Although the city of Faro remains its main attraction, Faro District also boasts a string of small towns made for sightseeing on foot. Medieval Europeans considered this southernmost part of Portugal the edge of the world, but today the tourism-oriented district serves as one of the country's liveliest vacation destinations. The coastline's modern resorts draw huge crowds at the peak of the season, while the quieter interior lures mostly cyclists and walkers eager to discover the more traditional side of Portugal. As an alternative vacation idea to staying in a single resort, use the well-connected city of Faro as your base and divide your time among the district's quaint villages, which preserve their local culture and traditional cooking.
