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.

    The Beautiful, and Warm, City of SEVILLA, Spain

    I can not get enough of the Beautiful, and Warm, City of SEVILLA, Spain. So many beautiful places and attractions, and still, more yet to be discovered. A week of stay (as a tourist) is not enough. Just to bask in the typical Andalucian and Southern Spanish Culture of Sevilla, one must be ready to open his/ her eyes, heart and mind, to what this unique place's culture can offer you. The Sights, the Music, the Sounds, the Food, the Environment, the Culture.. I will always come back to this place.

    Insider Tip:Just use your COMMON SENSE when going around the city, be always aware of your surroundings, and your own stuff, especially in crowded places, to avoid pick-pockets, scam artists, and other unfortunate, petty criminals. Keep a low profile, do not be a show-off. Act like a local, not like a tourist. THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP: LEARN TO SPEAK BASIC SPANISH, BEFORE YOU VISIT SPAIN. It's the Most Important Skill you would need to "survive", and to enjoy, your Spanish Vacation. All the rest will be relatively easy.

    Lots of character, lots to do without feeling terribly touristy

    I loved Seville - I got lost many many times, but I really liked how many different types of things there are to do and see. . There's art, architecture, history, food, a lovely park, and nightlife. Lots of the museums are also free/discounted for Europeans and students. I was there for 3 nights/4 days, but I could have easily spent a week with each day completely filled.

    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.
