British Airways has frequent flights to Faro. Flights land at Faro Airport, just less than two miles west of the city centre. If your Faro flight arrives during daylight, you'll have an aerial view of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve perched on the edge of the sea. After your flight arrives at Faro Airport, hire a car or take a taxi to your Faro hotel. Then stretch your legs after your Faro flight with a walk through Faro's Moorish and medieval old town or relax on one of the sandy beaches along the Faro coast.
Once your flight to Faro has landed, hop on a bus to Faro Bus Terminal, which leave regularly from outside Flight Arrivals and take around 20 minutes. You can also take a taxi from here for a swift and comfortable journey to your accommodation, particularly useful if you're not staying in the centre of Faro. Alternatively, you'll find several companies offering car hire at Faro Airport, a useful option if you're planning to explore both Faro and the Algarve region.
After your flight to Faro, explore Faro's old-town districts of Vila Adentro, Mouraria and Bairro Ribeirinho. Climb to the top of the bell tower in Faro Cathedral for city and sea views. Head east of Faro for the beachside lagoons of quiet Tavira town, or go west from Faro for the lively resorts of Albufeira and Praia da Rocha. Book a few rounds at golf courses west of Faro around Vilamoura. Before your flight home from Faro, fill your flight bag with lace tablecloths, earthenware and silver filigree jewellery.
