Hello, curious friends
Are you ready for an amazing trip to one of the most beautiful cities of Portugal? Well, this time we are going to take you to the Venice of Portugal…
Trip to Aveiro
Saturday, 2nd March
We have an awesome plan for you to discover the wonders of one of the most romantic Portuguese cities.
Surrounded by salt-flats, beaches, lagoons and incredible colourful little houses, here you will be able to enjoy the view next to the watercourse and discover the city on board of a typical boat called “Moliceiro”. We are also taking you to check out the famous salinas, a vast area of salt exploration! Then you will have the opportunity to learn how to make a traditional sweet from Portugal called Ovos-Moles, made with egg yolks and sugar, don’t worry you will have time to taste them, and other traditional sweets
To finish things off, we will take you around the city’s best spots and end the trip at a fisherman’s village called “Costa Nova” known for its beautiful striped houses. If you are brave enough, you will be able to soak your feet in the ocean at the beach.
What about ESN Green? We haven’t forgotten about it! We’re paying for the carbon footprint this trip requires. This way you’re also helping us erasing the pollution we leave behind since the carbon footprint is already included in the ticket price!
