East Algarve is brimming with delightful, traditional towns for you to discover. Discover Faro, Vila Real de Santo António, Castro Marim and Tavira when you take this wonderful trip from Quarteira.
At the agreed time we will pick you up from your hotel in Quarteira before heading towards Castro Marim, a town located in the east of the Algarve, around 40 miles away. Upon arriving, we will explore this small municipality where you will encounter a beautiful castle. Our professional guide will tell you all about its fascinating history and who it belonged to.
Our excursion to the east of the Algarve continues by visiting Vila Real de Santo António. This town, on the border with Spain, is a popular destination for tourists thanks to the wide range of fantastic local products available for purchase at bargain prices. Besides shopping, we will also stroll through the streets and learn about the locality's history.
The next stop is Tavira, one of the most beautiful cities in this part of the Algarve. We will cross the famous Roman bridge built over the river Gilão, and head into the historical center. Then we go to Santa Luzia and take a well-deserved rest in a local restaurant where you have the opportunity to try some of the region's delicious food (not included).
Afterward, we continue to Olhão, which is well-known for its strong fishing tradition. Here, we visit the municipal market, which is one of the unmissable sights for anyone holidaying in the Algarve.
Finally, we reach the region's enchanting capital city, Faro. Here we will take a stroll through the picturesque medieval streets, visiting the 13th-century Cathedral and the scary Chapel of Bones.
Once we have visited the essential landmarks in the capital, you have the opportunity to take a one-hour boat trip (not included) along the coast of Faro. Later we return to the hotels of Quarteira, arriving at around 6 pm.
