The tour that'll grant you EASY ACCESS to all major places and attractions. COIMBRA is known by the University - the oldest in Portugal and one of the oldest in the world. Coimbra was also the second capital city in Portugal. Land of kings, it's amazing all the heritage that this small city on the river bank of Mondego holds. We'll spend all morning discovering all that - the UNIVERSITY, the students and their traditions, the old ROYAL PALACE, the old CATHEDRAL, the narrow cobblestone streets and the new PROMENADES in Coimbra's downtown. This will be just the beginning of your adventure. Lunch will be a great opportunity to tell you the story of the portuguese "Romeo and Juliet". After that, something completely different and unexpected - AVEIRO. Located half-way between Coimbra and Porto, this coastal city has its own unique history and heritage. The locals built it to be an extremely efficient fishing town and, today, the CANALS and the GONDOLAS are the reason to call Aveiro "the Venice of Portugal". The old fishing activity it's almost a memory, but everything is still used today for tourism purposes. Imagine yourself taking a boat ride in an old fishing watercraft, tasting egg yolk in a flower shell (local sweets) and visit active SEA SALT ISLANDS.
