What You'll Do
  • Cruise along Aveiro’s channels in a unique "moliceiro" boat
  • Learn about the city’s culture and its traditional connections with the river and the sea
  • Admire the brightly colored houses on a walk through Costa Nova
Aveiro is known as the "Venice of Portugal" for the extensive network of water channels running through the city. Enjoy a cruise on a "moliceiro,” a traditional boat that will take you along the channels as you admire the city’s unique tile façades.
What to Expect
Experience the beauty of Aveiro’s water channels, which are natural formations along the Portuguese coast. Traditionally connected to the river and to the sea, the city has been called the Venice of Portugal.

You’ll feel the culture of this city that was once a fishing village, where residents made their living from the river, the sea, and salt production.

The half-day tour begins at the fish market square, where you’ll have great views of the city center. Next you’ll head out on an hour’s cruise along the city’s beautiful water channels. Travel by a typical, yet unique boat called a moliceiro that is decorated with motifs related to the local culture.

After the cruise your guide will show you the Costa Nova neighborhood that borders the sea. Admire some of the old traditional houses that are small in size, and painted in bright colors with vertical stripes.
