by sw8pea76

I am meeting my boyfriend for a week, he will fly into Faro, I will be coming from Rome and flying into Lisbon. Just wondering where would be good to visit/stay between the two?

evora could be an option or mabye lagos out in the western part of the algarve.
you could for that matter meet in lisbon too as travel distances in portugal are not that great.

Re: Where to visit between Faro and Lisbon?


The Algarve has endless possibilities, as do the Alentejo region next to it

What do you hope to do or looking to doing while there as far as activities go based on your preferred interests?

Give us more of a better picture and then many of us can and will help you with suggestions.

Also, when is this to be?

The Algarve is very busy with holidaymakers until early September and accommodation may be hard to find.

Also, temperatures in the Evora/Beja region are presently around 37/38C, so that might not make for too nice a time!

It depend if you're by car or by bus / Train.
I will suggest Évora, is a small quite city with lot's of nice places to visit and very good gastronomy (as wines, of course).
If you rent a car (or can waist time in buses), i will suggest any small village in the coast - great beaches and not crowded as Algarve.
Enjoy it

Travel Tips for Faro

Tavira was no disappointment,...

by Ruthy2001

Tavira was no disappointment, we were a bit wary of visiting the Algarve, famed for being a 'British' holiday resort so after asking our Portugese friends where was best to go we arrived in the historical wee town.

The beach was a boat ride away which was very satisfying and when we arrived on the island it was packed with tourists but very few Brits in sight which was a relief. You could sit on the firth which was prettier but the water looked a wee bit grotty what with all the boats arriving. Instead we headed through the island following the crowds by the campsite (I woudl definately stay there next time) and a few bars to reach the other side.

There it was. The Atlantic Ocean, the very same one that we can see from our wee town of Dumfries. There was the accompanying gale blowing and I felt at home. I forced myself in for a swim but it was very cold! the beach was huge, plenty of space for everyone, there was even a football game being played in bleachers at the other end but we were able to relax and people watch.

Faro by night


If you visit Faro for more than one day, take the chance to visit the Old Town by night.
Most visitors only come here on a daytrip from one of the busy beach resorts along the Algarve. So after 6 p.m. it gets much quiter in the city and you can even feel lonely in the beautiful illuminated Old Town.

People in Algarve are very...

by Chowke

People in Algarve are very simple and always like to help you the best way they can. English is widely spoken, and there are also a lot of ex emmigrants in France. You should try to deal with people in a simple way, never expressing your rights (unless you are really compelled to); just thanking will conquer you all the help you'll need.

Active Fisheries, a Quiet Walk

by redBodhisattva

After eating by the marina, we followed the water's edge towards the mouth of the harbor (on the left bank), and wandered along a nice paved path.. very quiet and romantic, before cutting through an archway back onto the paved city streets. Great pictures and a relaxing walk.

If you make your way to Praia...

by g-shock

If you make your way to Praia Do Vau beach then head towards the rock formations in the sea. In front of you you'll see cliffs. To your right you'll see a dirt path that many people use to get to the beach (if you've used this to get to the beach ignore the bit above) Head 100 mts down this path and look for a trodden path on your left (the direction of the cliffs). From here you can't go wrong just follow your nose and you'll have a great coastal walk along the cliff tops and be able to take in some spectacular views. Don't worry this is pleasant stroll not a hike.
