Sizzling Seville

Spain’s fourth biggest city is a big hit all year around. Its historic streets are bathed in glorious sunshine all year around. For enjoying the city in warm but not too stifling temperatures, plan your trip between April and June or alternatively in early autumn where the days and nights are warm and you are less likely to experience rainfall. 

If you visit Seville in early or late winter, the weather will be still mild during the day but can be a tad chilly at night. A coat will prove to be essential packing. You can expect slightly more budget friendly accommodation and of course for the crowds to thin out which for some makes for an ideal time to visit.

Discover the real Seville

From the contemporary art and modern architecture to the stylish fashion and moreish food, there is so much more to Seville than its rich history. Why not swap the horse-drawn carriages and age-old sherry for street art and hipster hangouts where you can drink cutting edge cocktails? Venture outside of the historic centre with its resplendent Gothic architecture and you will find quite a different Seville to what you might expect – are you ready to explore?

With the intoxicating scent of orange blossom and jasmine in the air, one thing you should do when visiting Seville is to take a moment to survey the scene. There is so much to see and do in this awe-inspiring city, it can be tricky to know where to start. With the historic buildings, many of which are an enduring landmark of this Andalucian city or with a relaxing stroll in one of the city’s lush parks? In Seville, anything goes!

Traditional tapas restaurants sit temptingly on practically every street corner, but small plates aside, Seville’s foodie scene is several (small) plates beyond that. From slow food in bohemian neighbourhoods to buzzy brunch spots where you can indulge in some of the best homemade bread in the region. You had better pack your appetite when it comes to eating out in Seville.

Seville is as much about the here and now as its rich heritage. From the city’s great cultural festivals and tantalising tapas to experimental cuisine and concept stores. Seville is here waiting for you and whilst its illustrious history speaks for itself – this bijou city also packs a punch when it comes to contemporary cool too.
