Visiting Seville with Kids

If you plan to travel to Seville with your children, it's advisable to split your trip to Seville over several days and allocate time for both cultural experiences and entertainment. While vacations are about bonding, Seville is also a perfect destination for kids. For instance, Maria Luisa Park is ideal for a leisurely stroll after visiting the Royal Alcazar or the Santa Cruz Quarter. Families love this place as children can have fun and be free. The Seville Aquarium and the Magic Island are two other excellent options for a family trip to Seville.

Visiting Seville as a Couple

Seville is already known as the new city of romance, and Paris should be very careful because Seville is a reference for spending fantastic days with your partner. Seville offers a series of activities perfect for a weekend, whether it's for Valentine's Day or just to relax. Seville is filled with incredible places to explore as a couple. And it's no wonder that everyone wants to come to Seville, or that many dream of proposing to their loved one in the heart of this city that epitomizes perfect love.

Visiting Seville with Friends

Seeing Seville with your best friends can become the best memory of your life. Visiting Columbus's tomb, a flamenco show, the Alcazars of Seville, a leisurely stroll along the Guadalquivir River, hearing the story of the Seville World Expo from our guide during a 2/3-day tour, seeing Murillo's paintings in Seville Cathedral – these are unique moments to experience together.

I would also recommend taking a good photo at Plaza de España near the fountain and on a boat. Don't forget to take a group selfie at the top of the Giralda and the Metropol Umbrella (Seville's mushrooms).

If any of you love architecture, go together to see La Casa de Pilatos, and if you visit in April, the Fair is the best party waiting for you. If your teammates are also into football, you can visit Betis de Sevilla Stadium and Sevilla FC Stadium, where Sergio Ramos started his career. If you have several days, book a ticket at Plaza de Armas Bus Station and spend a day in Cadiz and at the beach.

Buying Tickets for Seville Monuments

Buying Tickets for the Real Alcázar

Tickets for a visit to the Real Alcázar of Seville can be purchased directly at the palace gates, on-site. However, even if you prefer to visit without a guide, we do not recommend this option at all. We have seen queues lasting 2/3 hours for ticket acquisition. The second option is to purchase a ticket that allows you to skip the line or wait for a reasonable amount of time directly on the official Real Alcázar ticket website. We always advise booking 3 or 4 weeks ahead of your arrival in Seville to ensure ticket availability. The third option, preferred by 95% of our travelers, is A PRIVATE TOUR THROUGH THE PALACE. In this case, we handle your tickets for you, check availability, and deliver your tickets on the day of the visit along with the confirmation of your private tour in the Palace of Seville and the name of your dedicated guide.

So, you don't have to worry about anything. The service cost is €13.50 (€13.50 official price for 1 ticket for one person at the Royal Alcazar + €1 handling fee).

If you stay in Seville for a few days, general admission allows you, depending on capacity, to visit the Castle of San Jorge, the Antiquarium, the Bellver-Casa Fabiola Museum, and the Triana Ceramics Museum at no additional cost.

Buying Tickets for Seville Cathedral

If you have read our recommendations for obtaining your ticket and ticket for a visit to the Alcazar of Seville, you'll know that buying tickets for Seville Cathedral directly at the venue is not a good option either, as even in the off-season, the queues can be long and slow. Buying online is a much better option. If you would like us to take care of purchasing your tickets for Seville Cathedral, there will be an additional €1 fee on top of the official ticket price per reservation for handling fees (€10 adult ticket + €1 fee. Reduced ticket: €5 + €1 fee).

If you plan to visit the temple on your own, we recommend checking the official Seville Cathedral website for opening hours; sometimes they vary depending on the time of year, restoration work, or holidays.

Seville: Proposed Itinerary for a Full Day in Seville

Seville boasts vibrant cultural attractions such as the Alcazar and the Cathedral. But it is also a beautiful city with several interesting historical monuments. Below, we propose a one-day itinerary to explore Seville in a single day.

Seville: the perfect destination for a full-day activity

Spain Square

Early in the morning from your hotel, we will go to Plaza de España. A world famous place, the great Plaza de España will dazzle and seduce you with its beauty.

Filming location for many films such as Star Wars : it is an unquestionable place for a magnificent memory of your stay in Seville.

A very curious detail, although the Plaza de España may seem old because of its architecture and style, it is a 'hoax': it was built in 1929 for the Ibero-American exhibition .

Passage to the Maria Luisa Park

The Maria Luisa Park that is located next to the Plaza de España. This park is one of the must-see attractions in the city. The shade of the trees is always perfect and we will see the famous Aldofo Becquer roundabout.

We will also have a brief explanation throughout our tour of the Casino de l'Exposition and the former Tobacco Factory that will be the final touch of this part of the morning walk.

Seville Jewish Quarter. The Barrio Santa Cruz.

Once our stop at the Maria Luisa is finished, we will cross the Murillo gardens passing by two 23-meter-high Corinthian columns that hold a lion with a globe, in the Barrio de La Judería, the wonderful neighborhood of Santa Cruz.

Our walk will continue through the famous winding streets of the old Jewish quarter of Seville, the alley of water, the Plaza de Santa Cruz in Seville, we will see the Murillo Gardens and the Monument to Christopher Columbus in Seville and the Portrait of Catalina de Ribera in the Gardens of the Paseo de Catalina de Ribera.

Accompanied by your cultural guide, you will gradually immerse yourself in an irresistible atmosphere while listening to the peculiarities and anecdotes of the fascinating history of Santa Cruz.

Visit to the Real Alcázar

We will go directly to the Reales Alcázares; one of the most representative monuments in the entire city of Seville and even in Andalusia with the Alhambra in Granada.

It is also one of the oldest royal buildings in Europe and a perfect reflection of the history of the ancient Hispalis.

You will enter without queuing thanks to the preferential line provided by your official guide.

Walk through the Arenal neighborhood.

El Arenal, a neighborhood full of history, but very little known. In our time, it is known as a place closely linked to the world of theater, bullfighting and brotherhoods; but in the past it was the place of surprising atmosphere. Young people, very liberal women, sailors, carpenters, construction workers, laborers, coopers, street sweepers and garbage collectors were the tenants of this neighborhood.

El Barrio del Nuevo Mundo is a neighborhood that never ceases to amaze, and you will see for yourself that many details of its past still live on its streets.

El Arenal is the perfect place to stop and rest.

Bohemian neighborhood of Triana

Finally you will be able to know Triana. A charming neighborhood full of bohemian spirit.

It is one of the most popular neighborhoods of many Sevillians and one of those that best represents the character of the city and the Sevillians.

It was the cradle of gypsy culture in Seville.

And if the day of your visit the Triana market is open, we will pass through it.
