Three Days in Seville - Itinerary and Tips

Hello everyone, fellow travelers! 🌍✈️ If there is one thing I love about my job, it is the opportunity to immerse myself in your travel stories, which inspire me and guide me to new adventures. And one destination that often pops up in your stories is Seville. So, Fabio and I decided it was finally time to discover this city that everyone speaks so highly of.

Leaving in mid-February from Treviso, after a brief stop in Malaga, we headed for Seville. And let me tell you, friends, Seville does not disappoint: it is a city that vibrates with energy, where every corner tells a story and the constant sunshine that makes the colorful buildings shine.

Day One

From Seville airport you can take the EA bus with its terminus at the Plaza de Armas station, just a step away from the heart of the city. The ticket costs 4€ each.

For our stay, we chose thehotel Madrid de Sevilla, found on Booking: just 5 minutes from the center, with a room for 120€ per night. We loved it despite having only one star it is much cleaner, comfortable and central than other 4-star hotels we tried. Highly recommended! It can be found here.

Other recommended hotels:

After a quick lunch at Taberna Coloniales (mooolto good service however all good and cheap besides being right in the center) we started our tour exploring the main squares and immersing ourselves in the narrow streets of the Santa Cruz neighborhood. This neighborhood is the historic heart of Seville, a labyrinth of narrow streets winding through old buildings, hidden gardens, and flower-filled courtyards, where every corner seems to tell a story of yesteryear.

In the afternoon, visit the Alcazar Royal Palace, an architectural gem that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And for Game of Thrones fans, yes, it is indeed one of the sets of the series! In addition to its historical and architectural beauty, walking through its gardens and halls is a unique experience. Tickets start from 15.50€ on some sites but we went direct by booking with Get Your Guide. Here is the link: Seville Royal Alcázar Entrance Ticket

IMPORTANT INFO: Every Monday you can enter several places such as the Cathedral and the Alcazar for free. You must book well in advance online, however! If you can’t find the free tickets however, don’t worry those are available. payment on Mondays as well. For other places like the Casa de Pilatos, however, you have to arm yourself with patience and get in line. And how do you end a day in Sevilla? With a paella, of course! We went to Casa de Maria, in the Triana neighborhood, where paella is not just a dish, but a culinary experience. Starting at 18.50 per person, you can enjoy delicious varieties, served in generous portions for two. Excellent!

Day 2

Our second day in Seville opens with a visit that cannot be missed: the Cathedral and the Giralda. Did you know that Seville Cathedral is one of the largest in the world? A colossus of Gothic beauty that takes one’s breath away not only because of its size but also because of the richness of its details. And then there is the Giralda: the ancient minaret turned bell tower that gives a postcard view of the city. Tickets cost €12 if purchased online at the official website. I will leave it for you here: You will just click on “Buy Entradas.”

For lunch we opted for a place right next to the Cathedral: Doña Rufina. Delicious tapas!

The afternoon was devoted to the Plaza de España and the nearby Maria Luisa Park. The Plaza de España is an architectural masterpiece, with its bridges spanning a small canal and ceramic details that tell the story of the Spanish provinces. Then walk to the nearby Maria Luisa Park-a green oasis where you can relax.

For a snack I recommend the very famous Tarta de la Madre de Cris. 🍰 The founder is Pilar Molina. The name is a tribute to his fame among his son’s school friends who loved his famous cheesecake. Pilar then decided, after 35 years as a teacher, to devote herself to her passion by opening a little store that is now a must-visit in town. Her cheesecakes, available in variations such as cocoa, pistachio, gluten-free, and lactose-free, are truly delicious!

The evening concluded with a flamenco performance at the House of Memory. In a small and intimate theater, we experienced the essence of flamenco, feeling every step, seeing every expression, touched by the artists’ passion. An unforgettable experience that I recommend to anyone visiting Seville. We made reservations on Get Your Guide here. And for those still looking for flamenco after dinner, La Carbonería is the place to be for free cocktails and shows, although… better to eat elsewhere I’m told! 🙂

Day 3

Here we are on the last day of our exploration of Seville. And what better way to start than with a walk through the lively Triana neighborhood? This neighborhood, with its artistic soul and deep roots in the flamenco tradition, welcomed us with its vibrant colors. The walk took us to Triana Market where we had lunch with local tapas at really good prices.

The afternoon is your choice: the Casa de Pilatos, with its magnificent courtyards and architecture that blends Roman, Gothic and Mudejar styles; the Flamenco Museum, to dive even deeper into this art or theArchives of the Indies, where you can travel through the history of Spanish exploration (this one with free admission). Whichever you choose, each of these options will give you a unique piece of Seville.

In the evening we due to lack of time could not get on the
Setas de Sevilla
but it was really recommended to us by everyone. Let’s talk about the largest wooden structure in the world! Also known as Metropol Parasol, it offers a panoramic view of the city that is simply spectacular, especially at sunset, when the sky is tinged with incredible colors and the play of Silk lights starts. The cost is 15 euros and they told me it is valid for several hours so you can go back!
