The tour starts with a visit to the beautiful city of Aveiro, known as the Portuguese Venice due to the seawater channels that flood the city. Once in Aveiro, you will visit the colorful seaside area of Costa Nova, where you can appreciate the typical fisherman houses decorated with colored stripes. Next, you will visit Barra's beach. Learn about the influence of the sea over the population of Aveiro from the 17th to the 18th century. Following that, visit the city center, where you will see the 15th-century cathedral, the old train station with its tiles and the fish market. To finish you may take a boat cruise at the city channels on a typical "moliceiro" boat.
After lunch, the tour continues towards the "city of knowledge", Coimbra. Visit the first Portuguese university from the 13th-century, the cathedral and walk on the narrow streets of the medieval city center. Here, visit the 12th-century Santa Cruz church, where is placed the tomb of the first Portuguese king. Moreover, meet Café of Santa Cruz and the Monastery of Santa Clara a Velha.
