Images Of Seville

When people discuss what Spanish city you get to experience the 'real' Spain, where the streets are deserted during siesta time, Flamenco music rings through the streets at night and tapas bars abound every corner, they regularly refer to Seville. This city in the south of Spain bears all these trademarks. It's also home to one of Europe's most breathtaking cathedrals and has a Moorish royal palace right in the heart of the city centre. And as it's such a prominent university city, attracting students from all four corners of the globe, it gets into full swing every night once the sizzling sun sets.

    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.

    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!
