Portugal 2021 - Aveiro, Porto

We had a wonderful two weeks exploring the northern region of Portugal with a rental car in the summer of 2021. We began our journey in Porto, the colorful and lively city on the Douro river, where we tasted some of the famous port wine and admired the historic architecture. Then we drove along the northern border with Spain, discovering some of the hidden gems of the countryside. Next, we headed to the coast, where we enjoyed some relaxing days at the charming seaside towns of São Martinho do Porto and Nazaré, where we watched the surfers ride the waves and sampled some of the delicious seafood dishes. Finally, we visited Aveiro, known as the Venice of Portugal, where we took a boat ride along the canals and admired the colorful houses and boats.
