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.

    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.

    A perfect place to get lost!

    Never have I wanted to wander about aimlessly through the streets as I have with Seville. Really had a hard time leaving, the city is just fantastic. I could not get enough of the amazing culture. It's bustling and loud, packed with people yet there are also so many quiet, tucked away streets that weave here and there in a chaotic labyrinth. The night life is sensational, the food out of this world, and the people are so genuine.

    Insider Tip:Take time to relax. Do all the touristy things and see all the incredible sights (there are so many!), but then really slow things down and walk around in some of the tucked away neighborhoods. Try to break through the language barrier with a local. Sit (or stand) in a cafe and sip a coffee in the late morning or something stronger in the early afternoon. Stroll through the famous gardens or along the river. Stay out all night and sleep in all day. This is Seville!

    A very interesting and historically and culturally rich town. There is much in the surrounding area I would have like to explore and experience. I would be inclined to spend a week or more in Sevilla in the future. We were able to see the highlights in a couple of days.

    Insider Tip:Spend more time than you planned at first. Read Michner's Iberia sections on Andalucia, Extramadura, and Sevilla.

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.
