Full description
After being whisked away from Porto by a private car, your 4-hour tour of stunning Aveiro begins with a thorough walk through the city with your expert English-speaking guide. Gaze upon the elegant facades of the art nouveau buildings lining the broad canal that cuts through the city, all the while picking up priceless insight into the city’s history and culture.

After taking in the extravagance of the city, your guide will lead you to a moliceiro, or traditional boat, to cruise down the palm-tree-lined canal. Relax as you take in the splendor of the city from the water, drifting comfortably between Aveiro’s ornate boulevards. After your boat ride, head down the coast to the Costa Nova Beach, famous for the small colorful houses that line the promenade. 

As you are taken conveniently back to your accommodation in Porto, reflect on the beauty of a town ripped straight from a fairytale.
