Faro, Algarve, Portugal - This coastal city is well worth a stay in its own right, with a fascinating cultural history, a well-preserved old town, good-value accommodation, tempting seafood menus and lively nightlife. And now is a good time to go.  The glorious, almost rain-free summer is upon us, with temperatures in the low seventies tempered by sea breeze. You’ll also dodge the bulk of the summer arrivals, and be able to wander the medieval passageways and streets in relative peace.
