Great
A less touristy ride than in Venice. In Venice there are thousands of gondolas and in aveiro there are few which makes the experience very pleasant. They are different cities with different environments and different dimensions. They have in common their canals.

Portuguese Venice
I went with my husband this summer, known as the Portuguese Venice, I have not been in Venice but it is essential to do the walk. We arrived in Aveiro and what we did was the walk to get to know the city a little more. The line was not excessive, August and many people but it goes fast.

Moliceiro
We bought the tickets online, very easy to access, at our arrival all very nice and the trip was spectacular the guide called Joel was very accessible played with everyone and explained everything very well and always with a smile torn on his face. Better it would be impossible if we come back we will definitely recommend it again.
