City Guide: Things to do in Seville

Seville is a fairytale destination. Its stunning architecture attracts huge visitor numbers each year. It’s served as a filming location for Star Wars and Game of Thrones, too. See our deals here.

Visit Magical Seville

The scent of orange blossom in the summer air, the winding cobbled streets, the intoxicating Moorish flourishes – Seville is a unique place. There’s no better destination for a city break, escaping for a few days to what feels like another time and place.

Seville boasts Roman ruins and Baroque churches at every turn, and an atmosphere all of its own. Flamenco clubs keep this quintessential Spanish tradition alive and well, and its medieval lanes are perfect for exploring at your leisure.

Getting there

Direct flights take about 3hrs, but most airlines only fly direct a couple of times a week. In likelihood, you might have to take a connecting flight, a transfer, or fold your trip to Seville into a longer Spain holiday.

Getting around

Seville is a compact, highly walkable city. So if you’re staying in the city centre, you shouldn’t have any trouble getting around. Public transport is also excellent and affordable. The tram and the Metro are the best options here.
