Full description
Cruise through the city of Aveiro on a 45-minute ride onboard a traditional Moliceiro boat. Start along the Central Canal of the lagoon, the Ria de Aveiro. Traverse the center of the city, from the garden of Rossio to the old building of the Capitania of the Port of Aveiro. Follow another canal that formerly served as a waterway to the Antonio Maria Campos brick factory, where the Aveiro Cultural and Congress Center was established along with other public services. Then, cruise down Canal das Pirâmides (the pyramids canal), which was built at the beginning of the 19th century and stretches from the old fish market to the central canal. During the summer, enjoy a beautiful landscape made up of hundreds of small white pyramids of salt that represent one of the most characteristic features of this region.

The super nice guides !!!! They make the trip very pleasant and very fun. It's a treat. The tour is very nice to see, it is worth it. You don't see much more than walking but you see it differently and it's cool to take a break from so much walking. Aveiro in general is very good. I recommend the boat ride.

Short boat ride, nothing super exciting. One way to see Aviero. You can walk the same route.
