9. Faro, Portugal "We managed to go on a cruise to view the rocks and caves... nice heat during the day - good for tanning"

Lastminute.com reviewer Deborah says, "We didn't stay long, only 3 days which was unfortunate as it would have been better if it was at least 5 days but as it was a last minute trip it was very good! We went mid September, nice heat during the day - good for tanning but during the night was when it started to get chilling so a cardigan or overlayer would be ideal. At one point a restaurant even gave us a blanket during the meal lol. We managed to go on a cruise to view the rocks and caves, this was a good trip but best if booked in advance as better availability for more things to do. You enjoyed: The fact that everything was close by and walking distance. Like most in trip: The fact that it was a relaxing holiday..."
