Full description
Cruise through the city of Aveiro on a 45-minute ride onboard a traditional Moliceiro boat. Start along the Central Canal of the lagoon, the Ria de Aveiro. Traverse the center of the city, from the garden of Rossio to the old building of the Capitania of the Port of Aveiro. Follow another canal that formerly served as a waterway to the Antonio Maria Campos brick factory, where the Aveiro Cultural and Congress Center was established along with other public services. Then, cruise down Canal das Pirâmides (the pyramids canal), which was built at the beginning of the 19th century and stretches from the old fish market to the central canal. During the summer, enjoy a beautiful landscape made up of hundreds of small white pyramids of salt that represent one of the most characteristic features of this region.

Friendly people, informative tour. Very enjoyable.

Short walk that could be worth it if it were better organized. We had a reservation for 1:00 p.m. and they wanted to make us start the tour half an hour later for no reason. The guide was friendly, but he spoke too fast, like he was in a hurry, and I don't know if there is no history of Aveiro to tell or that the guide was not prepared.

Maybe a bit expensive for what it is, typical boat trip with few explanations but a very fun atmosphere. You don't enjoy the best scenery in Aveiro
