Book your desired departure time and begin your 3-hour walking tour in central Seville. The order of your sightseeing depends on your selected departure.

Visit the UNESCO-protected Alcázar, Europe’s oldest still-active royal palace, and bypass the main lines with a skip-the-line ticket (own expense). Then, take a tour of the palaces and royal chambers, still used by Spain’s royals when in Seville.

View the Moorish, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles, and learn about the Alcázar’s history from the 10th century before taking an independent stroll around the lush gardens and ornamental patios.

Before or after your visit (depending on option selected), explore Santa Cruz, the former Jewish quarter. Learn how Seville’s Jewish peoples were confined here in 1248, staying until they were expelled from Spain in 1492.

Stroll the cobbled lanes past whitewashed houses and orange-scented plazas, stopping at highlights like the Plaza del Triunfo, Patio de Banderas, Plaza de Dona Elvira, and more.

Wander along pretty Calle Vida and Calle Susona, see the Balcon de Rosina, associated with “The Barber of Seville,” and hear fascinating stories about the area’s often dark history.

After 3.5 hours, your tour concludes near the Alcazar, leaving you free to continue sightseeing independently.

The guide had limited English skills and the we didn't go into the Alcazar at all on the Jewish Quarter.
