Immerse yourself in the history and traditions of Portugal on this day trip around the eastern Algarve from Faro. Explore ancient towns, discover a magnificent castle and marvel at captivating landscapes.
Algarve Historic Towns Tour Itinerary
At 8 am on the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Faro and head east to explore the history and traditions of the Portuguese coastal region of the Algarve. The first stop on your tour will be Olhão, a traditional fishing village that is known for its municipal market as well as its stunning golden sand beaches. A magical seaside town!
Immerse yourself in the history of southern Portugal next as you stop in Tavira. Like much of this region, settlements here date back to the Bronze Age, and the legacy of its rich past can be witnessed to this day. You'll fall in love with its enchanting whitewashed houses and architecture from the Roman and Moorish Medieval eras. We'll then head to the neighbouring town of Santa Lucia where you'll have free time to enjoy lunch (not included).
Having arrived back in Faro, you'll be taken on a fascinating guided tour of the Algarve's capital. Explore its historic centre, admire its Medieval Cathedral and discover the mysterious Chapel of Bones... what will you find inside?! If you'd prefer, you can enjoy a boat trip along the coast instead (not included).
At the end of your full day exploring the historic towns of the Algarve, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Faro for around 5 pm.
