The main reason we visited Seville is that I wanted to go on top of the parasol. It was closed off to the public on the day we visited (wed 5th dec). Dont know why but I was not pleased. On the plus side because...More

Staying next to this attraction. Not really high enough go get full view of Seville. Only need 15 mins here. Costs 3€ so not too bad and get free postcard.

A beautiful piece of architecture in the middle of Seville. Always nice to see and to awe. Do visit, it's definitely worth it!

This is the most amazing structure I have ever visited. It is been made of wood and it is the biggest wooden structure ever made. On the top you can see all Sevilla like a plate and right below you can have a snack or...More

This is a very interesting structure and does look slightly out of place as it is surrounded by little cobbled alleys and some tapas bars,pastry shops and restaurants. Below the structures is a food market. We wandered around admiring all the lovely fresh produce. Bought...More

Although an unusual structure, it's worth paying €4 (from memory) to go to the top and walk around as it gives you great views of the city. Unfortunately it did seem the structure, facilities and surrounding area were in need of some tlc as it...More

We came into Sevilla in the afternoon and had heard that the sunset from the parasol was amazing. We looked at some maps and saw that it was only about a mile from the hotel. It was a very confusing mile, from most directions you...More

Magnificent view of the entire city. Go one hour before sunset. Spend 30min walking around and the next 30 chilling with a drink. Speaking of the drink - it’s NOT free. Even though the website and ticket says it is. False advertising to get tourists‘...More

Hi, Looking for help to improve itinerary for our 5 day stay in Seville in May, any ideas/suggestions are very welcome! :) I'm not 100% sure about Cadiz day trip, should we stay in Seville instead and see some other things?

Best area to stay for Semana Santa? (6 Replies)
Hello, I'm returning to Sevilla next Easter with my husband as part of a tour around Portugal and Spain. We have three days in Sevilla, from the Wednesday to Saturday around Semana Santa, and I wondered what the best area to stay would be? Previously I stayed near the Metropol Parasol. But as my husband has never been to Sevilla before, I wondered if it would be best to stay near the Cathedral / Alcazar, or is there a better area for the parades? Also, are there any hotels that would...More

I would stay a bit out the city center to avoid the crowds. Nervion neighborhood is a good place with some nice hotels.
Seville itinerary help please (8 Replies)
Seville itinerary Hi We are going to be in Seville from 4th June to 8th June. I was checking the weather and now am slightly worried about how hot it would be. We would be travelling with our 18month old. We are not very early risers on a holiday and cant imagine getting out of the house before 11.00 on most days. Will this pose a problem? We will be coming from London so jet lag and time difference wouldn’t really be an issue. I need help with planning my days in a way that we can...More

A good flamenco place is Los Gallos (Plaza de Santa Cruz, 11). The main shopping streets are Calle Tetuan and Calle Sierpes. Good restaurants: 1. Cuna 2 (Calle Cuna, 2;Tel 954-211-107) is a large, elegant restaurant with traditional Andalusian decoration and with beautiful ceramic tiles lining the walls of the dining rooms.
