This tour will take you to visit Coimbra and Aveiro in just one day and become more enriched with the history, habits and customs of these important portuguese cities! Get ready to discover the incredible University of Coimbra with 500 years of history and of course a walk through the estuaries of Aveiro will be part of the itinerary!
The visit will start in the city of Coimbra. After visiting the University, you will have the opportunity to explore its historic center and Cathedral, named by the locals as Se Velha (Old Cathedral). There, university students sing the famous Coimbra ballads that delight anyone who walks through the streets. It is still in Coimbra that you will enjoy a typical portuguese lunch.
The early afternoon takes place in Aveiro, where you can relax along the city's cannals aboard a “moliceiro” boat. Enjoy the landscapes, from the picturesque historic center and its streets to its salt pans. No wonder Aveiro is known as the “Portuguese Venice”. Of course, you can't leave the city without tasting “Ovos Moles”, the most famous delicacy in the region!
