The tour is simple and inexpensive. Some people say that it is the Venice of Portugal. I disagree. The place is simple and beautiful. But it's a long way from looking like Venice.

The Venise of Portugal, Aveiro has its history written by the Ria and its channels. Take a look at the orned boats (Moliceiros) and the Art Nouveau buildings in Aveiro to get a feel of this city
