Day 24: Ameliaveiro

Out of all the towns we visited in Portugal, I think Aveiro was one of my favourites. It was just the right distance from Porto for baby to nap and be in good spirits when we got there.en route baby sleeping

I was told it's essentially The Portuguese version of Venice. I've never been to Venice, but I loved absolutely everything about Aveiro, the feel of the town, the size, the look, the people, and the idea that everything is connected through 2 canals. These are still active salt mines and the salt is unbelievably delicious. I could've easily stayed here longer than a few hours. It was just so colourful, vibrant, and picturesque! Our Airbnb hosts in Porto actually live in Aveiro so they gave us a few recommendations and oh man, were those recommendations ever good!


We obviously couldn't resist and got the canal tour just in time for baby's nap. Again. What a life.

After we got our fair share of Ovos Moles pastries local to this town, we drove 20 minutes towards the coast to make a pit stop at Costa Nova, another little picturesque town known for its photogenic striped houses. We walked the beach a bit, found some houses, got some photos, and then went on our merry way towards our next destination in Nazare.

Yeah, we could retire here.
