If you plan to stay overnight then you can think about Porto, it's a 6h30 or 8h journey by train from Tavira (with a change at Faro), http://www.cp.pt/cp/searchTimetable.do

To Lisboa it's about a 4h journey (also a change at Faro) by train or about the same time, but direct, by bus http://www.rede-expressos.pt/default.aspx. I would also recomend an overnight in Lisboa.

Ryanair has flights between Faro and Porto. If possible, take the early flight, spend 2 nights and come back the late evening flight, so you have 3 full days. Two days for Porto itself and 1 day to see the Douro valley:


Also, consider a day in Sevilla, Spain it's quite close by.

If you have a car, I would also recommend Seville. I was in Tavira a few years ago, and did a day trip by car to Seville - motorway all the way. I started out early morning and returned late at night (from memory, about 1.5 - 2 hours drive each way), and I wished I had had more time to see Seville.
