Very good
Went for football, but the town centre, the park and the Cathedral were all worth visiting. Friendly locals, and the food and craft beers at L'Artesana were very good value.

Lovely old city, great atmosphere, lots of nice places to visit. Would have tried the boat or carriage trip if I'd stayed longe but easy to do all of our sightseeing by foot. Lots of nice tapas bars

Nice and beautiful city. Lots to see and experience. Food and drinks are cheap at least when you compare it to with some more touristic locations. Easy to travel to other destinations in Spain and to Portugal.

Popular neighbourhoods in Seville

Old town

556 properties

A mediaeval maze. Old Town is a tangled labyrinth of snaking passageways that hum with local bars. Grab a “caña” (small beer) at El Salvador Square, then dive into Seville’s illustrious history. The colossal cathedral and indulgent Alcázar Palace speak of competing legacies, as successive dynasties vied to put their architectural stamp on the city.

Triana

43 properties

Olé! Triana fizzes with folklore. It’s here that flamenco music took off, and no trip to Seville is complete without a visit to Calle Betis’ authentic “tablaos” (flamenco bars). To dig into Triana’s chequered past, go to Castillo San Jorge. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition’s old HQ to have transformed into a museum about its dastardly deeds.

Nervión

27 properties

New-fangled Nervión. This area’s been in a state of constant renovation for years. Its wide avenues are lined with office blocks, where sharp-suited businesspeople stride in and out. The mood changes on match days. Sevilla FC’s famously ebullient supporters fill the Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium with deafening cheers and jeers. Footy fans can’t miss it.

Los Remedios

13 properties

Roll up, roll up! Once a year, all eyes turn to Los Remedios, when Seville’s legendary April Fair rolls into town. Impatient locals have spent a whole year waiting for this moment. It’s a whirl of colour, as people meet, greet and eat in true Sevillano style. Dig out that frilly dress and dust down your castanets – it’s party time!

Macarena

10 properties

Tip-top for tapas. This residential district is awash with excellent eateries. Start off with an up-market appetiser at Bar Yebra, then wander across to La Pastora, which is famed for its fried fish. Work off the calories with a wander to La Macarena Basilica, and join devout locals as they murmur Hail Marys to the weeping Macarena Virgin.

Local tips for Seville

Christmas markets
Lidia by Lidia

Dog lover Lidia is at her happiest when walking her pooches - Bimbo, Luna and Pistacho.

In the lead-up to Christmas, there are a lot of cute markets in squares around the city, where you can buy lovely arts and crafts. My favourite is the market next to the cathedral.

Duque Gourmet Experience
María by María

María is Sevillana born and bred. Her passions include travelling and good food in good company.

The 5th floor of the El Corte Inglés department store has 9 gourmet spaces with amazing food. There's also a swanky terrace where you can enjoy your food with stunning city views.

  • Plaza del Duque de la Victoria, 8
  • www.elcorteingles.eu
  • Open Monday–Thursday 10:00–22:00, Friday–Saturday 10:00–00:00, Sunday 10:00–18:00
Activities in Alamillo Park
Ángel by Ángel

Proud dad Ángel loves spending time with his baby daughter, who has brought out his inner clown.

During summertime, there's always something going on in Alamillo Park, next to Isla Mágica Theme Park. There are all kinds of activities for all ages. They have fairs, concerts, puppet shows, workshops and storytelling. One for all the family!

  • Cortijo del Alamillo, Isla de la Cartuja
  • Check website for details.
Boat trip to Sanlúcar
Sara by Sara

Zen character Sara is into all things Eastern, particularly yoga and Japanese food.

During summer, I love taking the boat down the Guadalquivir River to Sanlúcar de Barrameda. It's a really peaceful trip, floating downstream and looking out at stunning Doñana National Park. It takes about 2 hours and is a great way to spend a day.

Summer cinema
Luisa by Luisa

Born and raised in Seville, Luisa loves long walks in the countryside and sunbathing on the beach.

If you're into films, you'll love this. Every evening in summer, they project all kinds of international films on a big screen in this courtyard. It's got a bar too, and the atmosphere is always really relaxed.

Drinks by the Guadalquivir River
Alejandra by Alejandra

Proud Sevillana Alejandra is delighted to be moving back home after 4 years away.

On sunny afternoons, there's nothing better than a cool drink by the river. My favourite place is El Faro de Triana, a bar set in a pretty yellow building. There's a terrace with beautiful views across the water. Cheers!

  • Cristobal Colon
Historical performances
Rafa by Rafa

When travelling, adventurous Rafa always seeks out the things that don't appear in guide books.

If you're after a different angle on historical buildings, check out these guys. They're actors who re-enact scenes from history at various points within the city. It's an exciting and unusual way to learn about Seville's history.

Plaza de España from the water
Becki by Becki

Becki has moved from the UK to Andalucía and has never looked back.

Plaza de España's a lovely place to visit at the best of times. It's even better when you can see it by boat! I love renting a rowing boat and floating around, surrounded by architectural grandeur.

  • Plaza de España
  • Open Monday–Thursday 10:00–19:00
Seville Aquarium
Alberto by Alberto

Sports-mad Alberto is Malagueño through and through. His passions are surfing, running and cycling.

If you're visiting Seville with children, why not visit Seville Aquarium? It's a great place to learn about marine life and I have been there plenty of times. You can even spend the night next to the shark tank!

"Caracoles" (snails) and beer in Plaza Alfalfa
Pilar by Pilar

Pilar has Sevillana blood coursing through her veins. She's happiest when basking in the sunshine.

If you're after a lazy afternoon Seville-style, head down to Alfalfa Square in the Old Town. There are a few bars there that serve snails and beer. It's the perfect recipe for a great afternoon with your friends.

  • Plaza Alfalfa
Horse-drawn carriage through Seville
Verónica by Verónica

Originally from Madrid, Verónica moved down south a few years ago. She loves Seville's classiness.

To take a trip into the past, take a horse-drawn carriage. They go through the streets of the Old Town and along the riverbank. It's a cool way to see the city and feel like an old-time Sevillano.

  • Constitucion
Murillo Gardens
Bego by Bego

When she's not travelling, Bego likes nothing better than going out with her friends for tapas.

Whenever I'm in town, I visit the Murillo Gardens. They're a welcome respite from the heat and buzz of the city, and I love wandering round among the trees. Plus, next door there are lots of cute bars, beside Santa María La Blanca Church.

  • Menéndez Pelayo, s/n
  • Open Monday–Sunday 08:00–22:00
Views of the Cathedral from a terrace
Natalia by Natalia

Natalia is from Málaga and loves nothing better than chilling with her friends on a sunny terrace.

Seville Cathedral is a really stunning building from whichever angle you look at it. I recommend going for a drink on one of the hotel bars' terraces in the surrounding area. It's a really cool way to enjoy a drink with amazing views.

  • Plaza Encarnacion
Avenida La Palmera
Tere by Tere

Shopaholic Tere is mad about travel. She loves spending time on the beach, all over the world.

Avenida La Palmera is one of Seville's most beautiful streets. It's lined with grand old buildings from the Expo of 1929. It's a great place to stroll and marvel at some of the city's prettiest architecture, now converted into hospitals and government buildings.

  • Avenida La Palmera, 6
Plaza del Cabildo
Ana Belén by Ana Belén

Originally from Jaén, Ana Belén is a fan of good music, long lunches and summer nights.

Seville is full of beautiful hidden corners that take your breath away. Plaza de Cabildo is a lovely little square with a semicircular colonnade. Every Sunday, it hosts an antiques market where you can find all sorts of weird treasures.

  • Almirantazgo, 10
Lose yourself in Santa Cruz
Ana by Ana

Originally hailing from Venezuela, book lover Ana made Andalucía her home a couple of years ago.

Santa Cruz is my favourite place in Seville. It's a cute neighbourhood with winding streets and beautiful buildings. I love wandering around and getting lost in this stunning area, with its orange trees and fantastic façades.

Recommendations for Seville

It is a vibrant city with a lot of young people in evidence. People of Seville very helpful and courteous. Plenty to see and do for those who are interested in culture. If you enjoy Spanish guitar and Flamenco this is the place for you. Prices seemed to be little lower than a lot of other places in Europe.

Avoid local holidays, buy a ticket for the hop on hop of bus and choose what sites you wish to see it cuts out a lot of walking. Use seville as a base to visit Jerez and Cadiz by train, they are on the same train line from Seville

Go during Holy Week--quite a cultural event. The history and the attractions are amazing. The people are friendly but very much their own culture.

Make time to visit the cathedral and climb the tower! Not steps but an amazing spiral ramp.

Transport

Seville transport

Air - Seville San Pablo Airport

The quickest way to get from the airport into town is by taxi. There’s a taxi rank outside the main terminal – just look for the white cabs with a yellow stripe across the back door. The fixed rate depends on the time of day, but it should cost between EUR 22 and EUR 25. The journey takes 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can get the bus. They’re yellow, and they’re also located outside the terminal. The trip takes 30 minutes and costs EUR 4 for a single ticket, EUR 6 for a return.

Bus

Seville’s bus system is well organised, and many locals use it to get around the city. Bus stops are red, as are the buses. Single tickets cost EUR 1.40, although if you’re planning on making several journeys, it might be best to pick up a multi-journey ticket. You can get these at news kiosks around the city. All of these tickets can also be used on the metro. Buses run until 23:30, then night buses run until 02:00 (05:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays).

Metro

Seville’s metro is a work in progress. There’s currently just one line in operation – serving the commuter belt south of the centre – and a further two lines are under construction. You can spot the metro stations by their green lettering. Travel cards can be bought and topped up at the stations themselves, and prices vary depending on the number of zones you’re passing through.

Tram

Seville has one tram line, which runs between the Nervión district and the city centre. There are five stops. The tickets are usable on the bus and metro, and you can buy them on the tram itself. It’s preferable to have the right change to hand. Single tickets cost EUR 1.40, and multi-journey tickets will work out cheaper if you’re making several trips. These tickets can be bought from news kiosks around the city.

Bicycle

Seville is a bike-friendly city. It’s quite flat, and there are plenty of bike lanes. There are also public bikes that you can collect from around 250 racks around the city. The bikes are grey with a red mud guard at the back. A weekly pass requires a EUR 150 deposit. The first 30 minutes are free, the second 30 minutes cost around EUR 1 and thereafter, each hour costs around EUR 2.

Car

Travelling by car in the city centre is not recommended, particularly in the Old Town. Traffic is restricted, many of the streets are very narrow and parking is limited. However, in the outskirts, it is fine. When it comes to parking, there are two options. Public car parks are identifiable by their blue square with a white P. Alternatively, informal street parking is available for a small fee – usually around EUR 1. Just pay the parking attendants and they’ll look after your car.

Train

Seville doesn’t have a train network within the city. However, the train lines do cover many of the towns in the surrounding area. Santa Justa and San Bernardo are Seville’s two main stations. Tickets can be bought from machines inside the station building, and options are displayed in English and Spanish. Prices depend on how many zones you’ll be travelling through.
