The 10 Best Things to Do in Seville

From Moorish influences, which brought light to Andalucia when the rest of Europe languished in the Dark Ages, to the height of Spain's colonial era and the riches the Americas yielded, a stroll through Seville takes you on a tour of its golden ages.

Planning Your Visit

  • How many days to spend in Seville?

    A full four days will allow you to appreciate Seville's attractions without rushing. If you plan to come in spring for the Feria de Abril, then tack on another day or two for this major cultural and colorful event. For a week you'll never forget, consider experiencing Semana Santa (Holy Week of Easter) in the city.

  • Getting around

    The city has a bus and metro system, and taxis are everywhere. Seville's main sights are also within easy walking distance. If you stay in Triana or simply want to explore the neighborhood, you'll find that metro and bus lines service that area, too.

  • Where to stay in Seville

    The district of Santa Cruz is pretty central, and you'll have all there is to see in Seville at your fingertips. The district of Arenal is also a great option, as well as the former Jewish quarter of Triana across the river. Please keep in mind that if you are planning to arrive for Semana Santa, some hotels may require a week's stay.

This trip was so incredibly worth it. Both my husband and I get motion sick pretty easily and were worried about the long drive, but no worry was needed. Our driver was FANTASTIC and the trip overall was as seamless as advertised. We were texted the day before our trip with confirmation of where to meet our driver (he was there early), and then once we were in the van, the rest of the day was taken care of for us. The Alhambra was stunning, and we're so glad that this trip made it easy for us to get there and back without feeling rushed, all before dinner.

The paddle boarding was an unexpectedly fun activity to do in a new country! It was good for experienced and beginner paddle boarders. We had two guides that were both funny and helpful, and spoke good English. We met amazing people in the class as well! The views were beautiful and it was cool to see the bridge lit up from the water. They also took pictures of everyone so you didn't have to bring your phone. My husband and I recommend this!

This was an excellent tour. The palace is absolutely beautiful and the cathedral is grand and historical. The guide made the tour interesting by telling lots of juicy stories about the history that wouldn’t be normally told on an audioguide. Highly recommend.

Buildings on both sides of the river are wonderful and the trip is very organised. Buying tickets through GetYourGuide company is cheaper.

Interesting multilingual experience. Sitting on top deck is possible even in August as there is a protective canopy.
