Public transportation from Airport Faro to our Dance Venue in Sto Estevao is quite limited. Your options are:
The best is you connect through our Rideshare Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/482015589028911/ and collect a few people to share a Taxi from the Airport to our dance venue in Sto Estevao (about €40).
Antother option ist to take a bus from the Airport to Tavira Bus/Train Station
Then taking the bus from Faro until Tavira and after take the ONLY bus a day to Sto Estevao at 18h45.
OR there are trains from Faro to Tavira then get a Taxi to Sto Estevao. Again the best is you connect through our Rideshare Facebook group and collect a few people to share a Taxi from Tavira.
