Seville Vacations

There might not be a more festive month in any city, anywhere, than April in Seville, a city in the south of Spain. From the Passion of the Christ coming alive during the Madruga (the Semana Santa marches that commemorate Jesus’ Via Dolorosa on the morning of Good Friday) to the electrifying experience of the alumbrao at the beginning of the Feria ...

de Abril. This four-week party consumes every Sevillano's life, but even if you don’t visit in April, there’s more than enough to do here. The city is home to the third biggest cathedral in the world, the Seville Cathedral. Seville's sports, including bullfights and two futbol teams, are a highlight, as are flamenco shows and restaurants where dinners go on from 9pm to after midnight. Wandering the streets of Barrio Santa Cruz is an amazing experience; let yourself get lost amidst the azulejo tiles and omnipresent mini-plazas. Eating, drinking, socializing, and dancing are all some the favorite pastimes here, and the partying goes until after dawn at Seville’s great discotecas or bars on Calle Betis or in the Hercules. Hotels centered around lush courtyards or with wrought iron balconies make for a romantic stay, but city center business hotels and B&Bs round out the large number of options.

Weather

The best months to head to Andalucia are in the fall (October and November) and spring (April and May) when the weather is at its finest. Autumn is typically quieter than spring because of the Semana Santa ... Read more
(Holy Week) and Easter. Summers are swelteringly hot in most areas (97, or 36, in Seville) though the coast and the highlands are a bit more tolerable. Winters are cooler and wet with snow dusting the Sierra Nevada and rain hitting the Sierra de Grazalema; however, other parts of the province are more temperate, and it’s not unusual to see sunbathers and people swimming in the sea in February.

It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive but it's a fantastic city with great bars, loads of good restaurants and a magnificent cathedral. Be warned, it's unbelievably hot in summer!

Beautiful City. Well worth visiting. The open top bus tour is a great idea. You can hop on and off where ever you like. Takes approximately an hour and a half in total

One of my very favorite cities not only in Spain but all of Europe. Seville has it all; a fantastic "Old Town" the jaw-dropping Alcazar Palace, a beautiful cathedral (the second largest in Europe) - wonderful little restaurants, cafes and a spirited night life. In April they has their annual "April Farias" which is a week of very colorful parades, festivity, food and drink. Almost impossible to get a place to stay unless booked way in advance, many travelers just crash in sleeping bags outside, which I did. A fantastic place!

Seville is beautiful and quaint and it's easy to walk almost everywhere. There's lots of sights to see including the can't-miss Alcazar of Seville. A few days here is relaxing, but it's easy to fill your days seeing wonderful sights.

There's lots of university students studying here and lots of exchange students too. While the city is historic, it's youthful too.

We came in the hot heat of August, and while there's less crowds, the city mostly shuts down.

one of my favourite cities in spain. the history, the food, the culture and the people are all wonderful. there's so much to do here. there are still tapas bars which serve free tapas when you order a drink. this type of establishment is quickly disappearing in other parts of spain

Seville has something for everyone, between its incredible history amazing food and impressive sights. The historic city center is largely closed to traffic, which makes it very walkable. Don't miss the largest gothic cathedral in the world or the amazing Alcazar.
