Full description

Start this private tour with a pick up at your accommodation. Your guide will be waiting to take you to the beautiful city of Aveiro, known as the "Portuguese Venice". Want to find out why? Come with us and discover the amazing details of Aveiro and Costa Nova.

When you arrive in Aveiro, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that the city offers: observe the colors, the architectural structures, the calm Moliceiros cruises passing in the waters, quietly. 

It's time to explore the city on foot! Discover the historical center of the city side by side with your guide who will elucidate you about the pinnacle of the Art Nouveau style in Aveiro. Breathtaking buildings that have adopted extravagant architecture since the twentieth century. Did you know that Aveiro is a member of the "Réseau Art Nouveau Network" alongside Barcelona, Brussels, Budapest, Glasgow, Helsinki or Havana?

Aveiro was once a city of fishermen, founded in the production of salt, and becoming known as the main center of salt production that supplied the whole of Portugal. Learn all about the History and traditions!

The magic of this journey happens in a one-hour boat ride on a classic Moliceiro (traditional boat) along the city’s dazzling canals.

After this relaxing cruise, we will ride along the coast to discover the beautiful Costa Nova Beach, famous for the small colorful houses (strong colors in a pattern of vertical or horizontal lines)  that seem to have been taken from a true fairy tale!

Enjoy your tour exploring the entire area, have the opportunity to walk along the beach or near the river, and feel free to ask all your questions: it's time to unveil the culture, history, heritage, gastronomy or even entertainment aspects of Aveiro and Costa Nova.

Return to Porto. Your private tour is over and your guide will let you comfortably at the door of your accommodation.
