    most beautiful city

    i spent 5 months in seville to study and i fell in love with the city the day i got there. up to now it's still the most beautiful city i've ever seen and i'd highly recommend to everyone to spend a few days here (better in september/october than in summer). it's the perfect size, as it's big enough to be able to party in more than just 3 different clubs and to have enough shopping possibilities and stuff like that, but it's also small enough to feel at home easily and to walk everywhere.

    Insider Tip:you definitely have to get breakfast (tostada and fresh orange juice) at los puentes at las setas. it's a really spanish cafe and really really good. another spot to have breakfast is "la cacharreria", also at las setas and afterwards a cookie just opposite it.

    I've been in Seville in July and the only problem was the weather - it's way too hot in this time. There are for sure a lot of things to do and to see, as Plaza de Espana, Cathedral, Plaza de Toros. If you're going to shop keep in mind siesta.

    Insider Tip:Go to a free tour offered by hostels: guides not only know the city and its history well, but also tell the stories interesting.

    I love Sevilla. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and Sevilla and Spain are definitely my favorite places. You cant beat the culture, nightlife and friendliness of Spaniards and Sevillanos. Its an amazing city with lots of rich history and tons of things to do.

    Insider Tip:I really enjoy going to the maria luisa park, partying on calle betis at night (dont go before 2 am anywhere in spain), the new tapas market on the sevilla side of the triana bridge, and walking through the quiet streets of Triana, my favorite neighborhood in the city.

    Sevilla, stay more that two nights!

    Sevilla was so charming with it's narrow, winding streeets, beautiful Jewish quarter, and of course the historical/tourist sites. The Alcazar is one of the most stunning places in the world with amazing details on every wall and ceiling as well as beautiful gardens. Plaza d'Espana was stunning. Definitely a gorgeous city when lit up at night especially the cathedral and torre de oro. Highly recommend.

    Insider Tip:Don't miss tapas- go away from the main squares/streets for the real deal

    Fantastic Spanish city. It feels very authentic and chill. The sites are great and the city itself is gorgeous. Go to every tapas bar you can. Get tons of Sangria. It was really hot when I went, but most shops have water for a euro, so it's not bad at all.

    Insider Tip:Go to the Alcazar. It's worth every cent.
