Picturesque fishermen's houses, breathtakingly beautiful beaches and a boat trip on a traditional Moliceiro: discover the best of Aveiro on this unmissable tour.
Aveiro City Tour & Moliceiro Cruise Itinerary
Having met your guide at the Largo do Jardim do Rossio, you'll begin the first part of your tour of the best of "the Portuguese Venice". Climb aboard a traditional boat known as a Moliceiro and enjoy a peaceful cruise on the canals. During your boat trip, while you take in the views of the beautiful buildings you pass by, you'll also be treated to typical local sweets called ovos moles, or "soft eggs". Truly mouth-watering!
Following your Moliceiro sightseeing cruise, you'll embark on the second part of your Aveiro experience: a guided city tour by minibus. Heading straight to the historic centre, you'll be enchanted by stunning Art Nouveau buildings and the incredible Portuguese tiles that decorate the façades of monuments like the old Aveiro train station.
Your guided tour will take you to the contemporary University Campus as well as to the Aveiro Salt Flats, which served as an important part of the city's economy for many decades. It wouldn't be a trip to Aveiro without visiting the spectacular beaches nearby: discover Praia da Costa Nova and Praia do Paredão Barra, where the vibrant colours of the historic fishermen's houses and the historic lighthouse will leave you in awe.
The guided tour of Aveiro will come to an end back in Rua João Mendonça.
