Description

Discover the unique charms of Aveiro, whose extensive water canals have earned it renown as the Portuguese Venice. This tour takes you for a ride on a traditional moliceiro boat and gives you a look at the remarkable façades that define the special experience of the city.

A ride out from Porto takes you along the serene beauty of Portugal's northern coast. When you arrive in Aveiro, meander along the winding canals and past quaint whitewashed houses in the historic quarter, and admire the prominent Central Canal lined with moliceiros and charming fishermen's houses.

As you visit notable landmarks such as the Cathedral of Aveiro and the Church of St. John the Evangelist, your guide shares insight into the grand architecture and history of the town. Next, one of the boats takes you out for a scenic cruise through the canals, so relax as you absorb the warm Portuguese air and admire the charming houses before you begin the journey back to Porto.
