Full description
On this 4-hour tour you’ll leave from your hotel in Porto and head south. When you arrive in Aveiro, first off is an hour-long ride on a moliceiro, a traditional boat used to collect sea grass in the lagoon.

Admire the Art Nouveau architecture, and in particular the buildings near Praça do Rossio (Rossio Square). Many of the streets near and around this square are still cobblestoned.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a taste of the famous ovos moles, a legendary Aveiro confection made with water, sugar and egg yolks.

Visit the Art Nouveau Museum and the Mercado do Peixe (fish market). Continue on to the Costa Nova, a paradise that’s home to several species of birds. Visit the lighthouse and see the old colorful fishermen's houses.

After the tour your driver will drop you off at your hotel or other location of your choice.
