Guided tours in Seville

It takes several days to get to know this city, but sometimes we only have a short weekend to spare. That’s why we’ve put together a programme for a great time in Seville from Friday to Sunday.

Friday afternoon

After arriving in the city and dropping your luggage at the hotel, we propose a walk through the old town from the Puerta de Jerez, the Avenida de la Constitución, the monumental area, the Plaza Nueva, the shopping streets with their magnificent shops (ideal for shopping) and as far as the Campana, the heart of the city and the Plaza de la Encarnación, with the monument of the ‘Mushrooms’.

After our walk, we will visit the tapas bars, located in the surrounding area: on Calle San Eloy, between Calle Tetuán and Calle Sierpes, on Calle Albareda (next to Plaza Nueva) and finally in Calle Arfe and Calle Adriano in the Arenal neighbourhood.

To end your evening, have a drink in this area or go to a terrace on Paseo Colón. You can also attend a flamenco show in Seville.

Saturday Morning

Visit the monumental area, starting with the Cathedral, the Giralda and the Alcázar, then continue through the neighbourhood of Santa Cruz and the Jewish Quarter. Eat at one of the many restaurants in the area or have tapas in Calle Santa María la Blanca or in the Puerta de la Carne area.

If you want a guided tour we recommend a guided tour of the Alcazar of Seville, either as a standalone or combined with the Cathedral, or with a walk through the monumental Seville. We can help you with a private tour or check out this combo group tour.

Saturday Afternoon

Stroll along Calle San Fernando and Puerta de Jerez, to see the old University and the Palacio de San Telmo. Cross the Puente de Los Remedios bridge and enter Calle Pureza, the heart of Triana and traverse it to visit the Esperanza de Triana. Continue to the Altozano, where in its vicinity you can visit the Sevillian ceramic shops.

We will return along Calle Betis with magnificent views of the river, where we can dine fish in its pubs and restaurants, and finish by having a drink in the area, on a terrace on either bank of the river. If the night is a long one, a grand finale is to have some churros on the Triana bridge.

Sunday Morning

Stroll through the centre, around the Cathedral of Seville, to explore the antique market in the Plaza del Cabildo (Av. Of the Constitution).

Head for the Museum of Fine Arts, in front of which an Art Market is held. Take the opportunity to visit the museum itself. If you prefer contemporary art, it is nice to visit the Monastery of La Cartuja, the headquarters of the Andalusian Center for Contemporary Art. Stroll through that area and see the memories of Expo 92.

Go to the typical Plaza de San Lorenzo and visit the Cristo del Gran Poder, then finish in the Alameda de Hércules, which is very atmospheric and an ideal place to eat on one of its many terraces.
