I was disappointed with Aveiro. It was not the best day to see it and due to the rain we did not venture far. However, it would not have enticed me to venture far anyway.
The buildings looked dreary and not kept up to any...More
To be honest I was excited to see the city after a lot great reviews I read and documentaries I saw on TV. But after a four hour visit and a long stroll my impression and expectations weren’t full filled. Yes it’s a nice cute...More
Got stuck here for 2 nights because of bad logistics planning. Stayed at MELIÁ, second floor, view on the parking lot. It seems to be one of the few hotels that still have no coffee or tea facility in the room. Terrible!
I was on a tour of Portugal from the North to South and we stopped at Aveiro for lunch. clearly in the past Aveiro was based on salt production, fish and seaweed harvesting and there was still evidence of that. Colourful boats like gondolas ply...More
I don't like to be negative, especially as the Portuguese in general are really kind, but in all honesty, I did NOT like Aveiro.

We did a daytrip to Aveiro from Porto. Even if there are not so many things to see, we enjoyed a nice day. We had fresh fish for lunch in a restaurant next to the river, we strolled around the center with the small souvenir...More
Very well organised town , catering for the visitors & the locals . The tourist office is helpful , but the lack of books on the town & its attractions in English , must be looked at . Very essencial in my opinion .
Took the train from Espinho and immediately impressed with the old rail station building. Unfortunately, like many buildings in Portugal its now derelict. Aveiro is a lovely town with a few natural canals at its centre and some beautiful squares with bars and restaurants. The...More

There are a few good sites but cant post them here. Tripad wont let me.
We are dissapointed with Aveiro. Better go to Venice or Amsterdam. The city is ok but the boat tour is like Las Vegas, very artificial.
