SEVILLA IN FOUR DAYS
We took an Easyjet flight down to Sevilla in Southern Spain on a four night city break. We had thought that September would be cooler but we still had extremely high temperatures , 36 and above , however, no rain.
Sevilla is pretty easy to get around and we took a taxi on arrival because we have never been here before and it was an evening flight and paid 28 euros but we took the shuttle bus , EA back to the airport for 4 euros each which we got at la Plaza de Las Armas . During our stay we walked to many of the sights as Sevilla is a good walking city albeit tiriing as many city breaks are but sometimes we used the Metro L1 or the tram .
The last two days we opted for the Green, Sevirama, Hop on Hop off bus for 18 euros each which was our best buy actually because it is valid for two days. We took it in the afternoon and the following morning of our flight back.
We headed straight to the market in Triana to fill our backpacks with fresh fruit and cheese. Excellent choices and not expensive at all.
After the market we went to the Alcazar and I strongly recommend that you either get there incredibly early or that you purchase a fast track ticket , there are a few options on Trip advisor that you can get before your trip.
We spent two hours at Alcazar which is one of Sevilla s must visits !
After Alcazar we went to the Cathedral which is really unique in its magnificence the visit cost us 9 euros per person but you get to see the tomb of Christopher Columbus , well there is a debate about this.
Today we went to the Bull ring and took a guided tour , although I am not a fan of bullfighting I still think that it is worth visiting as the guide was very informative and you get and audio with it .
This morning we headed over to the Sevilla football stadium which was unfortunately closed for visitors due to refurbishment but the shop is fun. https://www.sevillafc.es/
In the afternoon it was our hop on bus to Plaza de España We stayed for two hours before hopping back on to see the Macarena district and la Plaza de Hercules which is where we ate most evenings . If anybody has any good restaurant addresses for our next trip to Sevilla then any feed back would be much appreciated. 🙂 http://www.andalucia.org/es/turismo-cultural/visitas/sevilla/otras-visitas/plaza-de-espana-2/
We chose the hotel Zaida in the old town but regretted not getting one with a pool . Zaida was charming.
Morning trip to the Museo de Bellas Artes , just next door to the hotel. Fabulous architecture and Baroque collections. Second best after El Prado .
The Plaza de las Armas is a shopping centre worth seeing to pick up some souvenirs before we got the shuttle from the bus stop opposite.
