What do I need to know before moving to Aveiro?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Aveiro, they said...

"Expats moving to Aveiro, should be aware of the following: 1. Aveiro is a small coastal city in the northwest of Portugal, known for its canals, colorful moliceiro boats, and Art Nouveau architecture. 2. The cost of living in Aveiro is generally lower than in larger Portuguese cities like Lisbon and Porto, making it an attractive option for expats seeking a more affordable lifestyle. 3. The official language is Portuguese, and while English is spoken by many locals, especially in the tourism industry, it is helpful to learn some basic Portuguese phrases to facilitate daily life and social interactions. 4. The climate in Aveiro is mild, with warm summers and cool, wet winters. The city is also known for its high humidity levels, which can take some getting used to. 5. The public transportation system in Aveiro is reliable and affordable, with buses and trains connecting the city to other parts of Portugal. However, owning a car can be useful for exploring the surrounding countryside and beaches. 6. Aveiro has a range of housing options, from modern apartments to traditional houses. Renting is common, and it is advisable to work with a local real estate agent to find suitable accommodation. 7. The city has a vibrant cultural scene, with numerous festivals, museums, and art galleries to explore. The local cuisine is also a highlight, featuring fresh seafood and the famous ovos moles, a sweet egg-based treat. 8. Expats with children will find several international schools in the area, as well as local Portuguese schools. It is important to research the available options and consider factors such as language of instruction and curriculum when choosing a school. 9. Healthcare in Portugal is of a high standard, with both public and private options available. Expats should ensure they have adequate health insurance coverage and familiarize themselves with the local healthcare system. 10. Finally, it is essential for expats to familiarize themselves with local customs, etiquette, and cultural norms to ensure a smooth transition and integration into the local community," wrote a member who made the move to Aveiro, Portugal.
