Full description
Discover Aveiro, considered to be the Portuguese Venice with its picturesque canals, architecture and great gastronomy. Explore the best of the city with a knowledgeable local guide who will make sure that you have an interesting and fun experience.

Begin your guided tour at Largo del Jardim del Rossio, in the Beira-Mar neighborhood, which expanded outside the walls of the old town. Walk through the most traditional part of the city and one of the most colourful neighborhoods in all of Portugal. Hear about the fishermen, sailors, and all those who worked in the salt flats have historically lived in this district, and how over the centuries a unique atmosphere has been created in this scenic district.

Strolling through the old town, discover the Republic Square, where some of Aveiro's most emblematic buildings are located: the Church of Mercy, the theater, and the Town Hall. Visit the Marquês de Pombal Square and contemplate the facade of the Aveiro Museum and the cathedral.

Choose to compliment your walking tour with a boat trip on a traditional moliceiro. You can also combine the tour and boat ride with a food tasting of Aveiro's traditional desserts. Sample treats such as ovos moles (creamy egg yolks and sugar wrapped in wafer) and some Aveiro liquor.
