With its pedestrian Old Town, white sand beaches, and charming fisherman’s village vibe, Albufeira’s modern resort amenities and fascinating Moorish and Roman history offer you plenty to explore. Do so at your own pace with a hop-on hop-off bus tour of this vibrant seaport.
Enjoy the ocean breeze from the top of your double-decker bus as you circle the city. Step off in the Old Town and wander through its cobblestone streets. Gaze up at the Bell Tower—one of Albufeira's most famous landmarks—with its 92-feet (28-m) staircase topped by an 8-bell carillon. For a dose of history, stop at the Tower of Medronheira, constructed as a line of defense to pirates and sea invaders during the 1500s.
Take advantage of the informative on-board audio commentary as you cruise past popular sights. Hop off to admire the Gothic-inspired Misericordia Chapel before heading down to the Marina to enjoy a break in a terraced café or to take a casual stroll along the scenic promenade. After the sun sets, join the local beachgoers at one of the many bars and nightclubs on Albufeira’s lively Strip.
