Visiting Seville

Seville is a warm city that makes you feel welcome when visiting. While its city centre is a bit squashed, a walk along the Río Guadalquivir is perfect for a bit of space while the outskirts is where you will find some of Spain’s nicest parks.

    Awesome city

    A great city. It's the fourth largest city in Spain but feels much, much smaller and you can definitely get to know it well and find your favorite spots in a few days. Amazing sights and food and good nightlife

    The best city in Spain!

    Many travellers would say Barcelona is their favourite place in Spain. Without thinking twice, Sevilla is on top of my list! It's a great mixture of history, sightseeing and amazing nightlife! The city is alive day and night and has everything one might need. The cathedral/mosque , the Jewish quarter, the narrow streets with fantastic places to eat, the flamenco shows, the open-air clubs and dancing until sunrise are just a few of the highlights! Live Sevilla!

    Insider Tip:Take the free walking tours with Medi! Enjoy a couple of hours of siestas between 1 and 6 PM when it is really hot outside and enjoy the city in the evenings and at night.

    So perfect

    I loved to stay in Seville. Historically speaking, there's a lot to visit: the Real Alcazar, the catedral, the Torre de Oro....walking along the Guadalquivir...having great nights in city clubs during summers for cheap.

    Insider Tip:You can take the train to pretty much any city around Sevilla for cheap. Around 20€ round trip to visit Cadiz or Huelva, or Malaga or Cordoba....

    Lovely, Unexpected Gem of Spain

    Seville's views from the river were stunning, making it have a very Parisian/Roman scenic look to it. The tapas were phenomenal and the Alcazar was hands down a must see on the trip. Plaza de Espana was the most phenomenal site I think I've ever seen in Europe. Sorry if that really hypes it up for anyone, but it really is breathtaking.

    Insider Tip:Walk along the river banks and check out the view from the golden tower at sunset.

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.
