Located in the Andalusia region, it is full of tourist attractions and historic monuments, as well as tasty restaurants and breathtaking views.
It is therefore an ideal destination for a long weekend with friends or as a couple!
To start this trip, on the first day, I suggest you walk in the famous Santa Cruz district. You will discover charming narrow alleys, typical flowery patios,
as well as the spectacular Cathedral of Seville
and the tower of the Giralda.
Then, you can discover the Alcázar of Seville, a magnificent palace which served as a setting at Game of Thrones, an essential visit to Seville.
To go out a bit from the beaten track, I recommend that you visit the Dance Museum, a unique place that approaches dance in an original and interactive way.
A fun anecdote on the Cathedral of Seville: did you know that the Giralda, the emblem tower of the cathedral, was originally built as a minaret? It was converted into a bell tower of the cathedral after the Christian reconquest in 1248.
For lunch, I recommend the El Pasaje restaurant, located in the Santa Cruz district. This traditional Andalusian restaurant offers delicious regional dishes based on fish and seafood.
For animal friends, you can visit a cat coffee: El Gato Tuerto, a place that welcomes abandoned cats and offers you a unique experience decorated with cats.
For the evening, you can head to the Triana district, located on the other bank of the river. The place is lively and you could discover the night atmosphere by visiting bars and typical little taverns called "tabernas".

If you have a little time, you can also visit the Place d'Amérique, a huge square which also hosts magnificent monuments.
After a busy morning, you could be ready for a little gourmet break. I suggest you visit nitrogen, an eclectic gastropub restaurant that serves inventive and tasty cuisine based on regional products.
A stone's throw away is the Seville Arts Festival, an annual event that brings together artists from all disciplines for a stimulating cultural program.

Then, you can go to the Church of San Luis de Los Franceses, an impressive place and a great example of baroque architecture in Spain.
For lunch I suggest you visit the Mina, a restaurant with a terrace and a breathtaking view of Seville where you can savor typically Spanish dishes with quality local wines.
After lunch, to finish your visit to Seville, you can go to Metropol Parasol, a wooden -shaped wooden structure that gives a magnificent view of the city.
The best means of transport in Seville is to walk because the city is quite small. You can also use self-service bikes or local transport such as tram, metro or buses.
As for the budget, it takes around € 500 for two people for the three days, including accommodation, transport, activities and meals in quality restaurants. Of course, this can vary depending on your habits and your travel preferences.
