Aveiro, Portugal

Aveiro Portugal is frequently touted as “the Venice of Portugal” because of its canals and colorful moliceiro boats that ferry tourists up and down the canals.  While the canals and boats are an important part of Aveiro’s identity, the comparison to Venice is for tourism purposes only.  Aveiro is a great little city with a lot of personality and was one of our favorite places to visit.

As you walk through Aveiro, chances are pretty good that you’ll cross one of the three canals.  All of these photos were taken during the two days we spent there in March 2018.  We didn’t ride the moliceiros, but the canals did provide plenty of opportunities to record our memories of this beautiful city.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.

    1. I’ve never been to Venice but it was moderately busy. We were there in March, on a Sunday and Monday, so before the summer tourist season.
      Aveiro has a great feel to it. It’s a college town and I think that gives it a “younger” feel than many places, as far as restaurants, entertainment, etc. I’m an old dude, but I do appreciate the feeling of a college town.
