Seville, Spain is a destination that truly stands out. It’s compact enough to make it easy to explore in a few days. At the same time, it’s a culturally rich with so many incredible things to see. Even after a few days, you’ll feel like a local – but with so much left to see!
This month, we are sharing some great itinerary ideas for a shorter trip to some of our favorite cities. Continuing with Spain, we’d like to show you some ideas for a trip to Seville! A stand alone trip for 4 days or a part of a longer Spanish holiday, Seville is a city you truly do not want to miss!
Day 1: Welcome to Seville
Your private driver will meet you at the airport or your point of arrival to bring you to your hand-selected accommodations in the city center. Our portfolio in Seville includes grand and luxurious for those simply looking for the city’s best hotel. Or perhaps your style is a boutique guesthouse on a cozy side street? A refurbished noble residence with a rooftop pool? We offer something for every travel style.
Insider’s Evening of Flamenco and Tapas in Sevilla
After settling in, we love to start off a vacation seeing the neighborhood with a local. You’ll meet your private guide in the evening at your hotel for a special experience that will set the tone for your visit. A visit to Spain without a flamenco experience is not complete and your host for the evening will provide a deeper understanding of its origins, its meaning and its place in modern day Spain. Enjoy an excellent performance before combining the evening with another of Sevilla’s defining art forms: tapas!
Seville is possibly the best city in Spain for tapas. It is after all, the home of the tapas and has the largest number of bars per inhabitant anywhere, offering an amazing range of food. And who could be better than a local resident to show you the ropes into the world of Spanish food, introducing you to the intricacies or delightful simplicity of Spanish cuisine amidst informal, authentic settings.
Day 2: Sites you cannot miss
Your guide will meet you at your hotel and together step out into arguably Spain’s most enchanting city, Seville. Be seduced by its enchanting neighborhoods, with its twisting narrow streets, stunning patios and squares lined with orange trees. Our private Half-Day Walking Tour of Sevilla is the perfect way to see the city.
During your tour you will visit the enormous cathedral, the largest Gothic building in the world, featuring the tomb of Christopher Columbus and its 12th-century bell-tower, La Giralda, originally built by the Moors as a minaret.
You will also visit the ornately decorated Alcazar Palace and its Andalusian gardens. Your private guide will tailor your tour to your specific interests along the way.
Day 3: Incredible excursions
Seville is surrounded by some spectacular spots you can see on an easy day trip out of the city. Here are two of our favorites, but the choices don’t end here. The beauty of a tailor made holiday is that the trip is totally up to you! A free day to shop and explore? A longer tour? Different foods you’d like to try? We will design your holiday around your travel dreams and wishes.
How about a full day excursion to Cordoba with a private driver? You’ll be picked up from your hotel in the morning and driven in comfort to this picturesque and evocative town.
You’ll meet your private guide in the restored heart of the city, one of the largest medieval quarters in Europe. Here, you can see that while the rest of Europe was languishing during the Dark Ages, southern Spain, al-Andalus, thrived, and the rich culture and history left from this period.
A Gastronomic Pilgrimage to the heart of Iberian Ham
Love food more than history? Instead of Cordoba, perhaps you’d like to visit the Sierra of Aracena, north-west of Seville and the most important area for the production of Iberian ham in Spain. You’ll be accompanied by a private driver and guide for the whole day.
You’ll first visit a farm in a beautiful setting to see how the pigs are reared and then go on to see the installations of one of the best ham producers in the town of Jabugo, a mythical name in Spain for fine ham. At the end of the visit you will be able to taste the wonderful ham along with a glass of the best fino or manzanilla, a perfect pairing of food and wine!
Afterwards, head to the town of Aracena and enjoy a gourmet lunch at the finest restaurant in the area. The food will be accompanied by fine Spanish wine and end with some great dessert. After all the food, your guide will recommend a walk up to the local castle before heading back to Seville.
Day 4: Hasta la proxima, Sevillie
Depending on your departure time from this unforgettable city, we can arrange an early morning market tour, an olive oil tasting and cooking lesson for lunch, or just free time to relax in the park or shop in some of our favorite boutiques.
Your private driver will arrive right at your hotel to bring you to the airport for wherever your trip takes you.
