They call it “Venice” because of the moliceiros that sail along the canals; traditional boats that resemble the famous gondolas. But Aveiro has a number of other superstars. For example: there are the delicious ovos-moles (sweet delicacy made of eggs and sugar), the Costa Nova beach and its small colourful houses, the University campus – one of the most important technology hubs in the country –, amongst many other things. And you can tour the whole city on a BUGA (a free bicycle for use in the city of Aveiro). It's a very special city you won't want to miss.
