Uncover the captivating charm of Portugal's northern coast on this half-day guided tour. Often referred to as the “Venice of Portugal”, Aveiro is a small town boasting winding canals and quaint whitewashed houses. Learn about its history and culture from your guide and even visit Costa Nova.

Your tour begins with a scenic drive as you head south to Aveiro, a coastal town which boasts a prominent central canal lined with moliceiro (traditional canal boats) and charming fishermen's houses. Absorb the rich maritime heritage of delightful bridges and enchanting pathways as you're taken to the charming Old Quarter. Wander through meandering streets and pass by notable landmarks, including the Cathedral of Aveiro and the Church of St John the Evangelist.

Aveiro is also renowned for its stunning beaches and picturesque coastline. After exploring the city's history and culture, make a stop at the Costa Nova beach, where you can admire the vast expanse of golden sand and blue water. Also, take note of the palheiros – pretty wooden houses painted in candy stripes – which give Costa Nova a distinctive, colourful quality, adding character to the whole area.

Aveiro is beautiful and we enjoyed our time there. However, our experience was much different than our expectations. Maybe due to photos included in description, I was expecting the boat ride to be included in the experience; it was not included.The info on tour states "guided tour." We did not have a guided tour at all. We had a driver who drove us to Aveiro who was very nice, and transportation vehicle itself was very nice. But there was not guided tour at all. Dropped us off in town on our own. When we asked questions about the boat tour or other items, she was not informed at all of anything except that she was to drive us there. She made phone call abt boat ride & informed us it was not included. After Aveiro visit, she drove us to Costa Nova-also beautiful-& let us walk around there for a while and then drove us back to Porto. Enjoyed seeing the two villages but disappointed that exp was different than described.
