“A "must see" if you're into the art of tiles and railway architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Although they've renewed the station and now you don't have the same feeling of being in an "original" traditional train station, you can still see the original tiles on the walls with paintings of local traditions, such as the fishery and the salt culture.

“Travel by train in Aveiro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We arrived in Aveiro by train from Porto. Staff were friendly and spoke some English. We left from Aveiro again in a couple of days and travelled to Lisbon. No problems at all. Be sure to ask for the seniors' rate if you are over 65. Just show your passport to get half price tickets.

“great tiles in an unlikely place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Although the classic blue tilework on the Old Train Station is lovely, I would not think it is worth a detour. Certainly the tiles at Sao Bento station in Porto were more impressive as well as the tiles at a few churches in Lisbon, Coibre and even in Ilyavo.
However it is nice to see when you arrive at te "new" train station.

“Trains!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

One of the great advantages of European cities is public transportation. Aveiro's train station was clean and efficient.
