Overview of the tour in Faro

Walk and discover Faro with a 'farense' (Faro's born and raised people); we are the only one able to make you feel and understand the local culture. Faro has a long history, and as we walk its streets, this history comes to life through the engaging way we guide you through the city center.

From the beginning to the end, little stories and interesting facts make you feel surprised by such a rich heritage.

This tour will take you on a journey through time and end up with your day-to-day lifestyle. Being guided by a local will help you see the city from a different perspective and better understand our cultural identity.

  • Arco da Vila

On arrival

In front of Arco da Vila, right next to the tourist info office. Look for the red umbrella!
When you're standing on the main square in Faro facing the marina, with your back to the main shopping street, if you look to your left and walk alongside the building with the arcades, you will see a bell tower on top of a monumental archway called Arco da Vila. You can not miss it! It's just next to the tourist info office. We meet in front of this arch. Look for the red umbrella.
You can also ask for directions to Arco da Vila or to Vila Adentro (old town) since Arco da Vila is the main entrance to the old town. We meet in front of Arco da Vila located right next to the tourist info office.
