Experience Seville with us

Sevillanos are notoriously proud of their city and justifiably so. The home of flamenco music and bull fighting, life in this Andalucian metropolis revolves around tapas, Semana Santa (Holy Week) and Feria (Spring Fiesta). Think sun-drenched squares, romantic winding streets and fragrant orange blossoms. A city of greats, the third largest cathedral in the world – said to hold the remains of Christopher Colombus – finds it’s home in Seville. Spend time here and you’ll soon appreciate why Seville is consistently chosen as the backdrop of blockbusters, with Star Wars, the Game of Thrones series and Lawrence of Arabia all filmed throughout the city. The region that invented tapas also promises delectable bites of all shapes and sizes. With Seville tours, you can explore Alhambra Palace, Alcazar of Seville, Seville Cathedral, and more.
Buen provecho!

Our tips for Seville

  • Tapear. Tapas is taken so seriously in Seville that it even has its own vocabulary! To ‘tapear’ is to go out for tapas, ‘el tapeo’ describes the activity, and ‘un tapeador’ is a person who eats tapas. Seville specialities include Espinacas con Garbanzos (spinach and chickpeas spiced with cumin), Jamón Iberico de Bellota (a deliciously delicate and nutty ham) and Solomillo al Whisky (pork-loin with a whiskey, garlic and lemon sauce).
  • Put on your dancing shoes. Learn to flamenco from the best and book a lesson at one of the city’s many schools.
  • Skip the line. It would be a mistake to leave the city without exploring the popular Seville attractions, Alcazar Palace and the Cathedral, but it would be criminal to waste precious Seville sightseeing time in line. Pre-book your Seville tours of the palace and cathedral online to fast track queues.
