Transportation and Accommodations

Getting There

Sevilla is located in Southern Spain and is a lovely Spanish city. Depending on your prior destination, it has a smaller airport providing some direct flights, but much more limited than the larger Spanish cities (Barcelona and Madrid). If visiting Sevilla with other Spanish cities, consider taking the train to or from when flights are inconvenient.

Getting Around

Since Sevilla is smaller, it is fairly easy to get around everywhere on foot. If you would like to see more of the city or get off your feet, rent bikes for an afternoon and take them along the river, through the park and around the town.


If you like being in close proximity to all the main attractions, stay near the cathedral as it is centrally located. If you prefer a quieter spot away from the hustle and bustle,  consider staying right across the river in Triana or Los Remedios. If being close to busier shopping areas is important, then stay near Iglesia del Divino Salvador, which is more commercialized and busy. All locations mentioned still keep the city’s main attractions accessible by foot.

Things to do and see

Plaza de Espana

Gorgeous plaza built for the world’s fair when Seville hosted it. Visitors can rent boats and take them through the canal in this plaza (5 euros for ~35 minutes).

Maria Luisa Park

A very nice park to walk, run, or bike around in next to Plaza Espana

University of Seville

Stone building that was once a tobacco factory and now is the University of Seville


Royal palace in Spain encompassing a complex of buildings, gorgeous courtyards and gardens throughout the space. You can purchase tickets in advance or at the entrance and then walk around the Alcazar.

Cathedral and Giralda tower

Grand Cathedral and bell tower found in the city center. Visitors can climb the Giralda bell tower for a nice view of the city.

Flamenco Show

Flamenco is a Spanish music and dance style that is tied to the Andalucia region in Spain. When in Sevilla, go to a Flamenco show to get a true cultural experience. Casa de la Memoria is one small venue you can check out for a show. Reserve the show in advance, even if on the same day, to ensure you have a spot.

Rent Bikes

Bike rentals are very cheap, sometimes only a few euros per hours so change it up and see Sevilla on wheels. Keep in mind that the city center is not where you will want to bike as it can be more challenging to navigate around other people. Instead, look to take the bikes along the river or through the parks.

Other Notes

Spanish Cities

Compared to Madrid and Barcelona, the other major Spanish cities, Sevilla is the smallest. You can feel the Spanish culture a lot more in Sevilla and the quaint city has a local charm to it. Sevilla is definitely worth a visit, and was my favorite of the Spanish cities. Southern Spain has so much to offer and the food is phenomenal.


A weekend or long weekend is the perfect amount of time to spend in Sevilla. If you have more time, consider staying longer and taking day trips to other areas in Southern Spain including Granada, Cadiz and Cordoba.

Local Cuisine

Be sure to enjoy the local Spanish food and drinks including tapas, Sangria, paella, patatas bravas and chorizo. These are some of the many delicious options
