I´m Paulo, born and raised in this great and beautiful city of Aveiro which is also known as the "Portugueses Venice" because of its charm and the many canals that cross it! Since 2010, I have been working in tourism as a professional guide, so I have ample experience with walking tours and knowledge about the amazing city of Aveiro. I can assure you, you will love the time we spend together as my tours are known for being safe, comfortable, and relaxing while you get to know all about what the city is really like. I am passionate about welcoming people, and I am always delighted to socialize with different cultures, people, languages, and listen to their stories, and of course...having the opportunity to get to tell them all about my own! :) My experience in tourism activity allows me to create, develop, and offer true and unique experiences, valuing your time with full respect for your rest and freedom. I will welcome you with a great smile, followed by excellent recommendations on "what to visit, to see and amazing places off the beaten track in Aveiro", and I will give you a guide with a map that shows you how to see everything the city has to offer. My personal philosophy is, "Inspired by you" Do you accept the challenge? Your host Paulo

Tour description

Join me on my "Aveiro Downtown Free Tour" and you will be guided through this great city with a special guide who has traveled all over the world. This tour focuses on the city center and old town and also shows you where everything you want to see is located. I will show you some amazing details that you only see with a local and I will share many experiences. We will walk along the banks of the Aveiro canals and during the tour we will see the famous "Moliceiros" and "Mercantel", the typical local boats that were formerly used to transport salt and algae. You will fall madly in love with its shapes and decorations. In addition, we will discover old warehouses and Art Nouveau buildings with distinctive facades and we will cross several pedestrian walkways such as the Carcavelos bridge. We will then see some of the most famous and historic buildings in the city. We will look at the facade of the Igreja da Misericórdia, which is characterized by the white and blue tiles that adorn it. In the same square of the temple is the town hall of Aveiro and its municipal theater. We will meet "José Estevão", one of the most important guys in Aveiro. After an hour and a half of discovering Aveiro (always a little more...) we will end the free tour to return to the starting point so you can explore the city on your own. There are many large traditional tiles near this large Catholic temple. And don't worry about the rest of your trip, as I can give you great tips on amazing food and many other amazing things to do in this city to avoid falling into the typical tourist traps.

Excelente free walking tour con Paulinho. No sólo por la calidad de la información que nos dio sobre Aveiro, sino también por lo divertido y ameno que fue todo el recorrido gracias a la forma como él lo manejó, con mucho humor y tips que marcaron la diferencia.
