    ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! The people of Sevilla... I LOVE YOU. You go to the monuments like the Plaza d'espana, and your mind will be completely blown. Then you go out and meet some of the locals.... and you thought your mind was blown, but nope... the people here do the trick! Wonderful! So excited to come back one day!!

    Insider Tip:Just talk to people, try your spanish out, everyone is great!! The people I met here are some of the most welcoming, entertaining, and easy to talk to people I had met on my trip!

    Do NOT MISS Seville While in Spain

    I went to Seville, Madrid and Barcelona for 4 nights in each and Seville was my favourite in Spain and one of my favourite cities in Europe. Just a beautiful city with a lot of hidden gems you need to find out ;)

    Seville is ok, theres afew good sites to see and thats about it. It feels like a big city that's kinda empty and lacks vibe. The city is very spread out aswell so expect to walk alot. Wouldn't stay here any longer then 3 days.

    Home away from home

    People are very friendly here, especially if you speak at least a little bit of Spanish. You won´t be lonely with so many bars and hangouts in the city. At night the center comes alive with so many people enjoying themselves out in the summer night.

    Insider Tip:You do not need a bus pass; Sevilla is mostly walkable and if you need to go slightly further you can buy a ticket on the bus itself.

    Beautiful city, friendly people, excellent yet cheap food. Overall favourite destination in Andalusia (out of 5 cities visited)!

    Insider Tip:Restaurants that are worth a detour: La Chala and Sal Gorda. All their tapas are amazing and they attract a good crowd!

Spain: Itinerary

The north-eastern Spanish city is among one of Europe's favourite destinations for short breaks and a popular spot with inter-railers going to Spain. It is also home to some of the world's most fascinating architecture thanks to the works of Antoni Gaudi.
