Tour description

Join me on my "Free walking tour of downtown Aveiro" 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 the old town and also shows you where everything you want to see is. I will show you some amazing details only seen with a local local and share a lot of 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 once used to transport salt and seaweed. You will fall in love with their shapes and decorations. Furthermore, we will discover old warehouses and Art Nouveau buildings with distinctive facades and we will cross different walkways such as the Carcavelos bridge. Then we will see some of the most famous and historic buildings in the city.
