Things to do in Seville: The Ultimate Travel Guide

Visit #Seville #Spain, it's a beautiful city that you just can't miss. Packed with #culture, #history and excellent #foodanddrink, it's a great place to stay at for a weekend or even longer- here are a few travelling tips for Seville!

The largest city and capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia, Seville sits in the southwest corner of Spain, just over 500km from Madrid.

When to book a flight to Spain

There are multiple flights daily between Madrid, Barcelona and other major cities to the Seville airport, running from 50-100 euro round trip on average. It's better to book your flight around five weeks in advance to make the best deal on prices. On the other hand, the best period to be there is in Spring and Autumn. Try to avoid Summer because the weather gets quite hot, especially in Seville which is an inland city. Anyway, don't forget to check the weather before you set the dates.

Public transportation in Seville 

The easiest way to get around Seville is by bus or by tram. You can buy bus passes and single tickets at tobacco shops and newsstands, while for the tram you can purchase them with machines located at the stops. Seville also offers an underground metro, but I don't recommend it since the tram is easier to figure out and a bit more cheaper. You can also take the train to visit other Spanish cities. A ticket on a high-speed Renfe train runs 30-50 euro one-way. My two friends and I went by train to spend three days in the beautiful Andalusian city.

From the airport to the city center is about a 30-minute bus ride, which drops off at several points in the city. To get to the airport when we left Seville, we caught it at the train station out front, and I believe it was about 4 euros for the ride.
