To learn about the origins and history of Faro visit the museum for archeology and mine-ralogy which can be easily reached in your car hire in Faro. The exhibitions cover anything from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, though most items illustrate Faro’s early golden age: the city under the Romans. A fish mosaic and busts of emperors Hadrian, Gallienus, and Agrippa represent the town of Ossobonensis, Faro’s Roman name. It wasn’t until the 16th century that Faro would regain its importance when it emerged as a trade centre and was granted town privileges. Should the archeological museum have tickled your appetite for learning also check out the Centre of Living Science, accessed easily with cheap car hire in Faro. It is an interactive science exhibition popular among kids and grown-ups alike, so leave the hire car at the hotel and go and be a big kid once again!
Faro car hire and something special for football fans
Football fans will remember that Faro staged several Euro 2004 matches. The stadium seats 30,000 and local matches are not to be missed by any sports enthusiast. Should football not be your thing you might be interested in the motorcycle festival, an annual event which is supposed to be one of the biggest in Europe. Having sufficiently explored the city, you should take a closer look at the surrounding countryside as well. Just outside Faro the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, a 60 km (42 mi) long patch of wetlands, canals, islands, and swamp. Tour boats, formerly used to hunt for tuna, take visitors through the park and to the best bird watching spots. A remnant of the fishing traditions of the past is the water hound, once bred to fetch fish that were tangled in the nets. There are lots more to experience on a holiday with in Faro, so what are you waiting for? The holiday of a lifetime hopefully!
