You might not have heard of the Aveiro region of northern Portugal, but therein lies much of its charm.

City canals, gondolas and a lagoon... no, it’s not Venice, but Aveiro in Portugal, just half an hour from Porto and somewhere the locals pretty much have to themselves.
The Times

Lying quietly between the cities of Coimbra and Porto, it has a proud maritime heritage, and a landscape – characterised by shallow lagoons, salt flats, lakes and traffic-free cycleways – that is a joy to discover on two wheels. Even the name (from the Roman aviarium  – 'place of birds’) hints at the bird-spotting opportunities on offer, and the legacy of a nautical past – from seaweed harvesting in colourful wooden boats, to candy-striped former fishermen’s homes and tales of salt-cod-seeking derring-do across the Atlantic – makes this a compelling area to visit.
