Explore Aveiro and Bairrada on this Small Group Tour, tasting the typical Sparkling Wines and the delicious Roasted Suckling Pig of the region.The region of Bairrada is a prestigious wine region that will allow us to show you Sparkling Wines of the highest quality as well as a typical dish that brings thousands of people to the region every year: Leitão Assado à Bairrada (Roasted Suckling Pig)!  Aveiro, considered the Portuguese Venice, is a beautiful city that combines tradition with modernity and is also known for its most typical sweet: Ovos Moles (Soft Eggs). Come with us to discover this region that has so much to offer! Tastings await you today.

Our day begins at Porto. We start moving South, towards the Bairrada region, famous for its Suckling Pig and the sweet delicacies but also increasingly by the fantastic wines it produces with its characteristic variety: Baga. With this are produced sparkling wines of huge fineness and high creaminess, as well as red wines of dark color and concentrated aroma.

Out first stop is in Aveiro, the Portuguese Venice. What would be of Venice without its gondolas? Here we also have them, but they are called Moliceiros and they are our next destination! This vessel will take us on ride through the Ria de Aveiro and will drop us at the next attraction.

Next we have the Salinas. Here we will see how the natural extraction of salt is done, an art which has been carried out here for more than 500 years. We carry on our expedition with a relaxing stroll on the Costa Nova Beach, famous for its colourful striped houses.

It's time to taste the typical Bairrada delicacy - Bairrada Roasted Suckling Pig! For this, we will go to Mealhada, the Mecca of the suckling pig in Portugal. This is a unique opportunity to taste this dish at the most famous spot in the country, not to be missed.

To end our day we go to the heart of the Bairrada region, where we will find the Aliança Underground Museum. We will visit the underground tunnels where all the art is stored and taste three (3) awarded sparkling wines. 

Then we return to Porto. Are you ready for the trip? Book now!
