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. Faro District is in Algarve. In the build up to your vacation in Faro District, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Portugal vacation planning tool.
