Known as the Venice of Portugal, Aveiro is a coastal town in the Centro region of Portugal that contains a prominent network of canals and bridges.
Travel through these canals in a moliceiro, a colorful boat that is much like a gondola. Bite into an ovos moles, a sweet egg yolk confection, for a delicious example of the region's delicacies.
