Visit the Plaza de España [/caption]Seville is the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro. It is a hot, romantic city with a wealth of art and monuments and a love of flamenco dancing and bullfighting. Above all it is a city of great charm and gaiety whose ambience will remain with you for a lifetime. Here we provide a very basic itinerary idea based on just two nights in Seville with useful links to enable you to create your own city break.
On arrival at Seville airport or Santa Justa railway station you can arrange to have a car and driver waiting to transfer to your city centre hotel. Seville has Spain’s best tapas bars, many of which are in the Santa Cruz quarter where your hotel will probably be located. So this is a great way to spend your first evening wandering the tapas bars of Santa Cruz.
After breakfast you can visit the enormous Gothic Cathedral, the Moorish Giralda, Seville’s most beautiful building and the Alcazar. After lunch take a horse drawn carriage around the city visiting the amazing Plaza de España and other major sights. In the evening you should have dinner at one of our recommended restaurants then head to a flamenco performance.
The word tapas comes from the Spanish verb ‘tapar’ ( to cover). They originate from Andalucia where more than a century ago a slice of bread used to be placed on top of a glass of wine to keep out flies. After some time they took to adding a slice of cheese or sausage to the bread until eventually it became customary to offer a small snack with a drink. The idea of tapas spread around Spain such that today they represent a wonderful way of experiencing the huge variety of Spanish dishes.
Transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
