Your tour begins with pickup from your central Porto hotel in time for a 9am departure. Traveling by private vehicle, set out on the less than 1-hour journey to Aveiro, enjoying stunning views along Portugal’s Costa Nova coast.
Spend the morning exploring the coastal town, with its colorful waterfront houses, beautiful lagoon, and lively fishing harbor. Your visit can be tailored to your preferences, so you could set sail to cruise the canals aboard a traditional ‘moliceiro’ boat (not included) or enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) and sample local specialties such as ‘ovos moles’, a tasty egg-based dessert.
After lunch, continue to Coimbra, around 45-minutes drive away. Follow your guide on a walking tour of the historic center, the former medieval capital of Portudal and home to the prestigious University of Coimbra (entrance not included), one of the oldest academic institutions in Europe.
On return to Porto, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 5pm.
