Carcavelos Bridge, Aveiro: Our most recommended tours and activities

Porto: Nova and Gaia Coast Day Trip with a Cruise in Aveiro

Porto: Nova and Gaia Coast Day Trip with a Cruise in Aveiro

A journey through two of the most beautiful cities in the north of the country with surprises, history and curiosities.Do you know what we are talking about? We'll tell you all the details... Aveiro We leave early in the morning to make the most of the day. A walk through the most beautiful areas of the city to work up an appetite and continue on to the Carcavelos Bridge, a symbol of Art Nouveau, which we will tell you about in detail and also a good place from which to go to the Chapel of São Gonçalinho, which houses relics from the 18th century. We have a few stories to tell you! But for stories, you should go to the Arte Nova Museum, which allows you to learn about the social and cultural context of the origin of the movement while you sit in Captain Major Pessoa's tea house and listen to live jazz music. Quite an experience!Next, we'll take a 45-minute ride aboard one of the traditional "Moliceiros" boats, similar in design to the Venetian gondolas. Before finishing, we will make a last stop at the Monument to José Estêvão Coelho de Magalhães, one of the most illustrious politicians in the history of Portugal. But what about all the recommendations and picturesque spots we've told you about? You have free time to explore the city at your leisure! Recommendation: Don't leave without trying the local gastronomy! Costa Nova We'll then leave Aveiro and head towards Costa Nova, one of Portugal's most spectacular beaches, known for the iconic striped houses that line the bay. You will be able to take pictures and enjoy a guided tour of the beach most loved by lovers of water sports such as surfing, windsurfing or sailing. Capelha do Senhor da Pedra This picturesque 17th century chapel is located on the rocks of the beach of the same name in Vila Nova de Gaia. Its privileged location on the granite makes it stand defiantly in front of the Atlantic despite not reaching 10 metres in height. Built on a hexagonal plan in 1686 in a place of pagan cults, it stands out for its main altar with Baroque carvings and the two side altarpieces that surround the crucified Christ. The access stairway is 150 metres from the promenade, so it is necessary to cross the sand and stones to reach it. This means that, at high tide, it is impossible to walk to it as it is surrounded by the sea. It promises to be an unforgettable experience, book now!

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.

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.

Panoramic Boat City Tour in Aveiro

Panoramic Boat City Tour in Aveiro

Our visit begins at Largo do Jardim do Rossio where our guide will be waiting for you and the journey will start. During the 45-minute trip, you will be able to see some of the most characteristic features of Aveiro, accompanied by the explanations of our local guide who, in addition to the history of the city and its canals, will tell you secrets and curiosities. Our guides will explain everything about the Moliceiro and the Mercantel traditional boats. We will pass through the fishermen's neighborhood, the Beira Mar neighborhood, the oldest in Aveiro and where some of the typical fishermen's houses are preserved, and we will also see the traditional salt warehouses. We will pass through the Ceramic Factory of Jernoymo Pereira Campos. This red-brick factory and industrial style contrasts with the Art Nouveau of the buildings on the estuary and is where, currently, the Aveiro Congress Center is located. The Carcavelos Bridge will remind us of Venetians bridges or the curious Ponte Laços de Amizade, which is known as the bridge of lovers, and it is full of ribbons of all possible colors with messages of love.

Aveiro: Private Walking Tour in the City and Moliceiro boat

Aveiro: Private Walking Tour in the City and Moliceiro boat

Lose yourself through the narrow cobbled streets, Art Nouveau buildings and tile panels in the typical Beira-mar neighborhood with our experienced guides. Explore our locals’ favorite places, best Aveiro’s food and learn about its rich history by finding out why are we the Portuguese capital of Art Nouveau and what does the famous marnoto do. In this tour we visit, among others, the beautiful building of the Museum of Art Nouveau and others of its route, São Gonçalinho Chapel, Carcavelos Bridge, the narrow streets of the neighborhood and we finish with a tasting of our typical sweets in a place with more than a hundred years of experience doing the most genuine and famous “ovos moles”. Let yourself be lost in the past and see where it all began, in the famous Republic Square. Here you can also see the beautiful Mercy Church, the City Hall and the statue of an important “Aveirense” – José Estevão. Continuing our tour, you will be able to observe the beautiful Casa de Santa Zita, the Aveiro Museum facade – housed in the former Convent of Jesus of the Feminine Dominican Order, and whose prestige was definitively associated with the presence of Princess Santa Joana, and the Cathedral of Aveiro. In the end, enjoy a beautiful shared moliceiro boat tour. To come to Aveiro and not to go on a “moliceiro”, is like going to Rome and not seeing the Pope.
