Aveiro Free Tour
Join us as we discover the Portuguese Venice when we take a fantastic free tour of Aveiro. We will meet up at 10 am in the centrally located Joaquim de Melo Freitas town square, where our adventure begins.
We will stroll alongside Aveiro's idyllic canals where you will see the famous, traditional 'moliceiro' boats. These small colorful gondolas were once used for the transport of salt and seaweed. We will pass old warehouses and striking Art Nouveau façades, and cross pretty footbridges such as the Carcavelos Bridge.
We will also pass some of the city's most famous buildings. We will observe the elegant white and blue tile façade of the Misericordia (Mercy) Church and, closeby, you will also see Aveiro City Hall and its municipal theatre.
We will also encounter the city's magnificent 15th-century Cathedral, where, at 11:30 am, our free walking tour finishes.
