Aveiro half day private tour from Porto
A half-day tour will let you see why Aveiro is known as the Venice of Portugal. Despite having only three canals in the city centre, Aveiro is charming enough to become a life-long memory for those who visit it. You will also have the chance to pop over to the Costa Nova beaches and discover the typical coloured fishermen's houses.
We leave your hotel in Porto and head south. Start off this tour with an hour-long ride on a moliceiro, the typical boat used to collect seagrasses in the Aveiro lagoon. Then admire the Art Nouveau architecture, especially the buildings near the Praça do Rossio (Rossio square). Cobblestone can still be found on many streets near and around this square. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the famous ovos moles, a legacy of Aveiro's conventual sweets tradition made with water, sugar, and egg yolks. We also recommend a visit to the Art Nouveau Museum and the Mercado do Peixe (Fish Market).
The tour then continues to Costa Nova, with its extensive beaches and a paradise with several species of birds. You will have time to visit the lighthouse and the famous old coloured fishermen's beach houses.
On the way back, your private driver will leave you at your hotel, or any other location of your choice.
