Tours Excursions Transportation:

Aveiro is often compared with Amsterdam or Venice, despite having only three canals, but the many medieval features it has managed to preserve do make it very attractive. This is due in no small measure to the barcos moliceiros and a canal trip on one of these boats shows Aveiro at its most appealing. On such a trip visitors can see some magnificent Art Nouveau buildings and house fronts decorated with beautiful azulejos (particularly attractive are the tiles in the railroad station).

It pays to compare your cruise line tours here



Nearby Places:

There are no beaches within the Porto de Aveiro, of two beaches are fairly pristine and easy to reach on public transportation. The beach of Barra is accompanied by some expensive lodgings, restaurants, and nightclubs, but it also has a public campsite. The beach at Costa Nova is charming for its traditional wooden houses painted in bright stripes. It is less commercial than Barra, but it has a campsite, a supermarket, and a disco. Both beaches offer many opportunities for water sports and facilities that support them. Costa Nova is especially popular with surfers and wind surfers
