Discover the Best Tips for Planning your Trip To Seville!
Where to Stay
If you want to be close to the sights, the central neighborhood of Santa Cruz is hard to beat in terms of accommodation. It's well-connected, incredibly beautiful, and full of magic around every corner, but its popularity means it can get quite crowded and noisy at times. If you prefer something a little quieter, the Arenal neighborhood between Santa Cruz and the river is much quieter without sacrificing comfort and charm.
The further you get from the city center, the more authentic Seville begins to emerge. Areas such as El Porvenir, Macarena, and Alfalfa provide a fascinating insight into local life in the city, with the main tourist attractions still close at hand. Hotels and apartments here will also be more affordable than in the city center.
Seville has a medium-sized airport, so flying directly here is a great option if you are coming from elsewhere in Spain or Europe. However, the larger airport near Malaga is better connected to overseas destinations such as the United States. You can also get to Seville by train with Spain's excellent national rail network, and hundreds of buses from all over the country arrive at the Plaza de Armas station every day.
Culture and Customs
Seville is an extremely safe and friendly city. The locals are proud of their beautiful hometown and are happy to help visitors explore and feel welcome. However, take the same precautions you would take in any other city in Spain, such as keeping an eye on your valuables and not accepting gifts from strangers on the street. Women can be seen around the cathedral offering "free" sprigs of rosemary as a "gift" to passersby. Still, a polite but forceful "no thanks" is usually enough to get them to leave you alone.
Tips to Save Money
- Travel between the airport and Seville on the EA bus. The local bus network, TUSSAM, operates this line and the ticket costs only 4 euros instead of 22 euros or more for a taxi.
- If you are interested in visiting the Cathedral, head first to the smaller but also impressive Iglesia de El Salvador and buy a combo ticket. This will take you to the Church of Salvador and the Cathedral and costs the same as a normal ticket to the Cathedral, giving you access to two amazing churches for the price of one. Plus, you can even avoid the long line at the Cathedral.
- Many of the monuments and museums in Seville have established hours during the day, or even entire days of the week, in which entry is completely free. Be sure to check the website for the hours of any place you are interested in visiting; you may be pleasantly surprised to find that one of the free times fits your schedule.
- There are also many ways to enjoy Seville for free. Stroll through Plaza de España and Parque María Luisa, take a walk or jog along the Guadalquivir river or simply lose yourself in the winding streets of Barrio Santa Cruz: the possibilities are endless.
- Since Seville is the birthplace of flamenco, seeing a show here is not essential. However, skip the dazzling tourist experiences and head to a more low-key peña Flamenca, or flamenco bar, to see authentic flamenco among the locals without paying an arm and a leg. Places like T de Triana and Casa Anselma have regular free shows, but be sure to treat yourself to a drink or two to enjoy during the show.
- Skip the expensive hotel breakfast and enjoy your morning meal with the locals. Breakfast in the open air is a cherished tradition in Seville, and every morning between 10 and 11 in the morning, you will find local workers and families heading to their neighborhood cafe for a bite to eat, a coffee, and a snack. good conversation before starting the day. Many traditional places will serve the classic Sevillian breakfast with toast, coffee and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice for less than 5 euros.
