I read more than one article stating that Aveiro is the Venice of Portugal and by the photo’s it looked amazing. Upon arrival, yes it has canals and is colourful but in my opinion, not Venice although it doesn’t smell.
I found a cool hostel, met some lovely people and have enjoyed the town with 24°C blue skies.
Whilst wondering back from the local store, I stumbled across a cafe in one of the squares banging some cool tunes, so I dropped off my things and headed back for a nod and a drink…
Seems yesterday was City Day thus places were allowed extra freedom to put in special events—lucky for me!
