In 1759, by Royal decret of April 11, D. José I elevated Aveiro to the degree of city!

The arms of the Ria de Aveiro that extend in canals throughout the city make Aveiro the “Venice of Portugal”. The harvest of “moliço” in the Ria de Aveiro, to fertilize the lands, gave birth to its icon, the Moliceiro boat!

It is also in Aveiro that there are numerous buildings of the aesthetic style Art-Nova, which is characterized by organic and naturalistic forms, which in Portugal appeared late, already at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Coimbra was the birthplace of six kings of Portugal, of the First Dynasty, as well as of the first University of the country and one of the oldest in Europe.

City of narrow streets, courtyards, ladders and medieval arches, was the capital of Portugal before Lisbon, until 1255, and in it is the first National Pantheon, the Monastery of Santa Cruz.

Coimbra is a historically university city, because of the University of Coimbra, founded in 1290 as General Study Portuguese by D. Dinis in Lisbon that after several installations in the two cities, settled definitively in the city of Mondego in 1537.

Note: Full day tour with local tour guide in group of 2 to 8 people. The trips are made by minibus. It includes the lunch of the day in one of the restaurants of one of the cities to visit and the mini-cruise of moliceiro in the Ria de Aveiro. The sequence and places to visit may change depending on the availability of our partners.
