Description

Discover the serene beauty of Portugal’s northern coast on this full guided tour. Walk along the winding canals and past quaint whitewashed houses in the historic quarter of Aveiro. In the university town of Coimbra, you uncover the delightful wonders of the country’s former capital.

Board your coach and head southwards to Aveiro – known as the “Venice of Portugal” – which boasts a prominent Central Canal lined with moliceiro (local canal boats) and charming fisherman houses. Take in the rich maritime heritage of amiable bridges and enchanting streets that lead to the charming Old Quarter. Pass by notable landmarks such as the Cathedral of Aveiro and the Church of St John the Evangelist, and admire the grand architecture of the town as your guide narrates its history.

After lunch, you continue to Coimbra, Portugal’s medieval capital for over 100 years and the site of one of the country’s oldest universities. Stroll the grounds of the renowned 13th-century campus, and wander through the narrow streets and old stone walls of this thriving academic hub. Coimbra also vaunts a modern side, with a contemporary riverfront park with terrace bars and trendy restaurants.

Our guide George was exceptionally informative. Throughout the day he provided information in great detail. He continually checked with us asking if we’d like a change in how the day was going. He could not have been more professional. We thoroughly enjoyed a history-filled day.

Aveiro is not even close to Venice. There is literally nothing to do on this tour except for a 40 min boat tour. The rest is all boring stuff where they drop us on a street and pick us up 1 hour later. Skip this activity.
