Full description

Experience the beauty of Aveiro on a boat cruise in an authentic Moliceiro craft. Stroll through the Beira Mar district on a walking tour with a local guide and take in the lively vibe at the Aveiro Fish Market.

Be welcomed by your local guide at the Freedom Obelisk in the old town of Aveiro. Follow your guide to an iconic Moliceiro boat. Embark on a cruise aboard a colorful ship through the city's waterways.

Glide on an elegant boat and snap pictures of landmarks like the City Council building, a 15th century mill, and the romantic Carcavelos Bridge. Watch the old parts of the city melt into the new as you see the shopping center and a ceramic factory that was converted into a convention center.

Disembark and continue on your walking tour through the narrow streets of the Beira Mar neighborhood that was traditionally inhabited by fisherman and salt workers. Admire the vibrantly colored buildings along the canal.

Make your way to the bustling Fish Market, the Centennial building, and pass by richly adorned Art Nouveau buildings before ending your tour.

Katarina (sp) was great! Nice mix of history, building architecture, local crafts...super informative. The guide on the boat part of the tour was very funny (I don't know his name but he was born in Peru)...he made me laugh out loud quite a few times.

Catarina es una chica muy maja, nos encantó todo lo que nos explicó, nos dejo con ganas de volver a Aveiro, y el tour por el rio, fue muy entretenido, el chico, estuvo pendiente de todos los que íbamos en el barco y nos explicaba muy bien por donde pasábamos, en general una experiencia para recordar y recomendar.

Nous devions commencer par la visite guidée mais au vue de l attente aux Moliceiros , notre guide a préféré inverser . Malgré l horaire réservé , nous avons dû attendre plus d une heure et nous justifier auprès de la personne qui nous orientait vers le bateau . Notre groupe de 10 a été éclaté ! La dame d un certain âge qui s occupait de placer dans les Moliceiros était mal aimable avec les touristes !!
