Two Day Seville Itinerary

So this isn't quite how we did it as we ended up doing over 12km of walking a day and I've tried to put together in a more sensible order to save your feet a little!

Accommodation: We actually flew out on stand by flights through a friend who is a pilot, so we booked the hotel on the stairs up to the plane!! But never the less, it was really nice, good focus on sustainability. massive comfy bed and huge choice of pillows and friendly staff, so would recommend. We stayed at the nh collection and paid c£350 for the 3 nights.

Transfers: my tip is don't wait in the queue for a taxi, walk straight past them all and hop on the airport bus, they go every 12 minutes and drop at San Bernado which is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. You need a €4 ticket from the machine before you get on.

Onto the fun stuff!

Day 1 - walk back to San Bernado and hop on a C2 bus to the other side of old town. Have a little stroll through the windy streets, finishing a Cafe Piola for delicious tostadas, coffee and orange juice! Know that they are massive!!

To walk off the tostadas, head to the river for a lovely stroll along part of the 2.5km path, finishing at the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla and head in for a little look around.

If you have time, there is an hour long boat trip that goes from just over the road from here, with multilingual audio that is just right if you need to take the weight off for an hour!

From here its a 20 minute walk back through town to Az-Zait for a long late lunch! We had the 6 course tasting menu and it was to die for!! Make sure you book!

Now onto to the Setas de Sevilla, a huge wooden sculpture in the center of a plaza. Head underground to get your ticket for the viewing platform for some amazing views across the city! Save your ticket to come back within 24 hours. We didn't go in, but underneath the structure is the Antiquarium, a museum with ancient ruin which you could pop to if you have time!

It's then a short walk to Plaza Nueva to get the tram back to the hotel (perhaps picking up a cava and a snack from a supermarket along the way!) and an early night ready for another full day!

Day 2 - stroll from the hotel to the Plaza de Espana for a walk around the super impressive buildings and little bridges over the water (walk is about 20 mins from the hotel). After getting lots of lovely pictures head through the Parque de Maria Luisa towards the Plaza de America where you can stop off at a lovely little cafe in the sun for coffee and tostadas with a view!

From here stroll back through the park and out the other side and head towards the Cathedral. For the rest of the day you are going to be around here! I suggest a visit to the cathedral and a climb up the Giralda tower for some stunning views of the city and to work up an appetite for lunch!

At lunch time take a 15 minute stroll over to Cappuccino and grab a roadside table in the sunshine for an aperol and bite to eat.

Then head back the way you came for a visit to the Real Alcazar. For this you will need to book a ticket and time slot in advance via the website recommend getting the audio guide for this one so you know what you are looking at.

From here it is a 5 minute walk the the Plaza Nueva where you can hop on a tram back to San Benardo so you can go back to the hotel for a little feet up and refresh before heading out for the evening.

After the sun has set, get the tram back to the Plaza Nueva and then take the short walk over the the Setas de Sevilla! Head back up on your same ticket to take in the lights show before heading to Dona Encarna for a bit of paella and sangria! Before getting the tram back from Plaza Nueva, make sure to stop off at Amorino (just on the corner of the Plaza) for a beautiful and delicious gelato!!

Before you leave: so I know I billed this as a 2 day itinerary, but we had a lunchtime flight on the Monday so had time to head into town for breakfast before we got on the airport bus! We went to Bar El Comercio for amazing Churros con Chocolate! Is really bustling, full of locals, delicious and reasonably priced! Is not very big so be prepared to wait a little while for a table! Also the orange juice is fresh and divine!
