Visit the city of Aveiro known as the "Venice of Portugal" due to its water channels that enter the city from the river.
Once in Aveiro, the tour goes to Costa Nova, by the seaside, where you can appreciate the typical fishermen's houses full of colored stripes. Next, visit Barra's beach. Here, you will learn about the influence of the sea and the population of Aveiro during the 17th and the 18th centuries.
Visit the city center, where you will see the 15th-century cathedral, the old train station and the fish market. To finish, take a boat tour through the city's water channels on a typical "moliceiro" boat.
After lunch, the tour continues toward Coimbra, the "City of Knowledge." This historical city was the birthplace of six Portuguese kings and once the capital of Portugal. Visit the first Portuguese university from the 13th century and the cathedral, and walk on the narrow streets of the medieval city center. Visit the 12th-century Santa Cruz church, where the tomb of the first Portuguese king lies. Explore the Café of Santa Cruz, in a former Gothic church, the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha and Portugal dos Pequeninos theme park.
