What to do in
Aveiro is a quaint, colorful fishing town along the Atlantic coast of Portugal. This prosperous port (known for exporting salt and seaweed) straddles the Ria, a long, shallow lagoon that provides a haven for various bird species. Add the lagoon to a system of bright canals, arched bridges, and high-prowed transport boats, and it's easy to see why some call this town “The Venice of Portugal.” Visitors enjoy wide, sandy beaches, a rich offering of local seafood, and the sweet taste of ovos moles de Aveiro—a traditional egg-yolk-and-sugar treat that is endemic to the region.
