Tour description

Join me on my "Free walking tour of Aveiro city center" 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 located. I will show you some amazing details only seen with a local venue and 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 once used for the transport of salt and seaweed. You will fall madly in love with their shapes and decorations. Furthermore, we will discover old warehouses and Art Nouveau buildings with distinctive facades and cross several pedestrian passages such as the Carcavelos Bridge. Then we will 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 blue and white tiles that adorn it. In the same square as the temple is the Aveiro town hall 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 walking tour to return to the starting point so that you can explore the city on your own.

Tour entretenido, con buena información para moverte por Aveiro, todo interesante, y lo que no ves con él, te da información para ver por tu cuenta, ya que es imposible ver todo en un tour, por lo que sales con toda la información sobre Aveiro. Sin duda merece la pena.
