Aveiro (Portugal)

Originally founded in the time of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Aveiro is now one of the most interesting cities on the Portuguese coast and the Portuguese version of Venice.
Located south of Oporto, on the Ria de Aveiro, part of the city is full of canals, bridges and boats crescent called Moliceiros, similar to the Italian city of gondolas. These boats, painted with bright colors and drawings depicting romantic or religious scenes and even humorous reasons, have become a symbol of Aveiro and a major tourist attraction.
