No matter what you're reason for coming to Seville, whether it's the sun and the street life, the history and culture, the tapas and the bars, or to do a little shopping, you won't be disappointed, and you'll probably find plenty to surprise you and bring you back again. Being in Seville is a bit like being in a giant 3D postcard, and I've always said that the best way to experience its unique atmosphere is to toss your map away and see where your feet take you, whether it's through the picturesque Barrio Santa Cruz, along the river, through the parks and gardens, or along the old walls. But you won't get to see everything you want using this technique, so this is a list of suggestions to help you find what's right for you.
Admission prices are generally reasonable, and in some cases are free for EU citizens, but some of the privately owned attractions are quite expensive, and there may be queues for the more popular venues. Although it's become more common for museums and other attractions to be open seven days a week, many still close for a day, usually on Monday. Check the opening times for individual attractions.
If you are planning to pack a lot into your stay there are two tourist cards, the Sevillacard and the SevillaCardCultura, which you might consider purchasing, Information and purchase are available online at www.sevillacard.es, or at Iconos on Avenida de la Constitución.
How I’ve picked my things to do:
I've tried to include a good mix of places of historical and cultural interest, together with some fun things to do and places where you can take your leisure and just stroll, or even sit, around, so there should be something suitable for all sorts of people, whether couples or friends, families, or single travellers, and enjoyable by both young and old. So here you can find the essential must-sees, like the Cathedral and Giralda, the Alcázar palace, and the Plaza España, cheek-by-jowl with Isla Magica, Maria Luisa Park, and the bullfighting and flamenco museums. It hasn't been possible to include everything you might want to see and do, of course, and for more information you can visit the main tourist information offices in the Plaza San Francisco or on the Avenida de la Constitución.
