Private Full Day Tour to Explore the ‘Portuguese Venice’, Aveiro, Including Paiva Walkway

0 / 5 total 0 reviews
Duration: 9 to hours
Overview
Someone nicknamed Aveiro as “the Portuguese Venice”! We prefer to call it the city of Art Nouveau. Aveiro is a city of singular beauty. It is located by the sea and the river, with its canals and the traditional boats called “moliceiros”, fulfill the city with a unique and colorful beauty. The culture and essence of the sea is in every corner; Aveiro has always been linked to the sea trade, fishing and salt production. Aveiro is charm!

The Paiva Walkways is an 8 km boardwalk through ruggedly beautiful scenery in Arouca Geopark. Zig-zagging down rocky hillsides, hugging cliff faces and winding along the left bank of the Paiva river, the Passadiços do Paiva were the winner of the World Travel Awards 2016 for the Most Innovative Project in Europe and Europe’s Leading Tourism Development Project 2017. It will be a path through biology, geology and archeology. Arouca Geopark is recognized by UNESCO as a Geological Heritage of Humanity.
