Spain's most beautiful city

Although it may not be the most famous city in Spain, Seville is considered by many to be the most beautiful. You get a sense of its unique charms as you meander through winding streets surrounded by characteristic white and pipeclay yellow walls of the painted buildings. Due to the hustle and bustle of port activity, 16th century Seville was the richest city in Spain. Goods of all splendor brought from the New World arrived at the feet of awestruck locals. Although the city doesn’t have a sea exit, the Guadalquivir river is so deep and wide that it is perfectly navigable.

Venture further into the city to marvel at the largest Gothic Temple in the world, Seville Cathedral, or try to imagine the sense of pride and awe felt by locals for hundreds of years as they gazed up at The Giralda Tower. This minaret was built in the Almohad period and was, for centuries, the tallest building in Spain and constructed as part of a Grand Mosque. If you find yourself feeling frustrated or lost as you try to navigate the maze of streets, know that even Spanish people have difficulty finding their way around one of the biggest historical city centers in all of Europe.

Things to do in Seville

Seville is packed with sightseeing opportunities. With its rich history, varied architectural styles and vibrant neighborhoods, Seville could keep you busy for weeks! Our private walking tour is a great way to get oriented and pick out some places for more detailed exploration. The Real Alcazar, still a functioning royal palace. Maria Luisa Park lies on the edge of the historical center and its centerpiece, the sweeping Plaza de Espana, will look familiar to Game of Thrones fans. Bullfighting might not be to your taste but the rich pageantry of the sport is celebrated at the La Maestranza museum. As the sun begins to set there’s nothing better than a leisurely drink at one of the many terraces of the Alameda de Hercules, a favorite with the locals. Seville’s center is packed with tapas bars, but it can be hard to find the true local places given the large numbers of tourists, but a local neighborhood tapas tour will take you to the secret spots only Sevillanos know about. No visit to Seville is complete without a flamenco evening, whether you want dinner and a show or a truly local experience, we’ll make recommendations to suit. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose any additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Seville

How many days should I spend in Seville?
If you want to see a flamenco show, the most important sites and taste all the dishes that Seville is famous for, plan on a 2-night/3-day stay.
What are the must-sees in Seville?
The Cathedral of Seville and the Real Alcázar are unmissable points of interest. If you would like to get a glimpse into one of the grandest Christian holidays in Spain, plan a visit for the week before Easter, commonly referred to as the Holy Week. A more casual festival takes place after Holy Week in Seville. The Museum of Flamenco Dance and La Casa del Flamenco will introduce you to the tradition and intensity of this passionate dance.
Shopping
Shop luxury and classic fashion and accessories in the heart of Seville, on Calle Sierpes, Calle Tetuán, and Plaza Nueva. Ceramics, flamenco fashion, and other unique items manufactured by locals hide in the least touristy neighborhoods, like Triana, La Alfalfa. The must-visit shops are usually located near large commercial spaces such as markets. It is therefore worth walking around in Seville!
Is Seville safe?
Seville is a safe city. There is a little thread of pickpocketing in the touristy areas, but that's something you can prevent. Please make sure to fasten your bag on a stroll, do not leave it unattended, open, or hanged on the backrest of a chair. If you bear these bits of advice in mind, your holiday will be carefree.
What are the options for people with dietary restrictions and intolerances?
The Mediterranean diet is on the menu all around the country! Spanish cuisine uses a lot of rice and chickpeas that make the life of a gluten-intolerant easy-peasy. Milk is not a popular ingredient either, which is good news for lactose intolerants. Should you have any specific restrictions, feel free to turn to the waiter, who will helpfully assist you with the right choice of meal.

Seville has an extensive bus system, which is a preferred transportation method by locals. During your stay, you will benefit more from the Metrocentro, the surface version of the subway. You'll find more info on public transportation in Seville here.

You can expect to spend 35-40 EUR/person/day (40-45 USD) for food, beverages, transportation, and random leisure needs (spontaneous visit to a museum).
