3 Days in Seville: Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, September 2014
Sizzling, stylish and spirited – that’s Seville. Standing proudly on the banks of the Río Guadalquivir, Andalucía’s capital dances to its own exhilarating beat. Whether you’re getting lost in its narrow streets and hidden squares, marveling at Moorish masterpieces, or partying with the Sevillanos at one of their famous fiestas, you’ll be spellbound by this vibrant city.
One of the first people to fall in love with Seville was poet-king Al-Mutamid: now it’s your turn. And what’s not to love? Rich architectural heritage and romantic alleys, delicious cuisine and non-stop nightlife – it doesn’t get much sweeter.
Day 1: The Big Ones
Even in this attraction-packed destination, certain classics deserve star billing. Magnificent Seville Cathedral blends Moorish style with Gothic enormity: climb its Giralda, a minaret transformed into a Christian bell tower, for breathtaking city views. Presiding over the Guadalquivir, the historic Torre del Oro is home to a compelling maritime museum; while palatial Real Alcázar dazzles with its Mudéjar patios, fountains and gardens. The Sevilla Cultura Card gets you access to all the city’s big-name stunners and more.
Day 2: Up Close and Personal
Pack your camera, and hit the streets to discover Seville’s lesser known gems. La Macarena’s ancient Roman sites, baroque and gothic churches, Renaissance palaces and monasteries will delight you – as will its authentic, old-style tapas bars. Back in the heart of things, El Arenal is a must-see for its legendary bullring and idyllic tree-lined promenade, Paseo de Cristóbal Colón. Linger a few hours in Santa Cruz’s gorgeous white-washed laneways and flower-filled patios, before getting your obligatory flamenco fix in the evening.
Day 3: Outdoor Pursuits
What’ll it be today? A relaxing cruise down the Guadalquivir, giving you a whole new perspective on this incomparable city? Or a lazy afternoon in leafy Parque María Luisa? Bursting with diversions – spectacular Plaza de España, absorbing museums and landscaped walkways – this grand park is beloved by locals and visitors alike. All that fresh air given you an energy boost? Seville’s lively bar scene beckons…
