Mini Guide Faro

The Aeroporto Internacional de Faro, otherwise known as Faro Airport, is situated about eight kilometres to the west of the city of Faro in Portugal. It is Portugal's second most important international airport after Lisbon and has been designed in a modern style with the intention of handling large aircraft such as the Boeing 747. As well tourists who are going on holiday to the Algarve  it is used by travellers on business too.
 
To get from the airport there are a number of access routes which you can use such as the A22 motorway, known as the Via do Infante, and the Estrada Nacional 125. If you are driving from there into Spain take the N431.  Once you have arrived in Faro, the capital of the Algarve region in southern Portugal, you will find it to be a pleasant city with good weather.
 
Faro, the provincial capital of the Algarve is an alluring city with many appealing attractions and features to offer, making it one of the most popular destinations for sun-seekers from the UK and all over Europe. Trying to decide which car hire supplier you choose to guarantee you get the best price and deal can be a minefield, so let somebody else do the hard work for you.
