Begin with a 2.5-hour pleasant and enjoyable private tour in which you will understand the city of Seville through a historical and artistic point of view. You will be able to plan your time better and maximize your experience.
The pace of the tour is leisurely going and not physically demanding. It is a pleasant walk with a kind, friendly, and experienced guide. The streets and monuments of Seville are an open-air museum and show the city’s 3,000 years of history.
Visit Santa Cruz district, a former Jewish Quarter
You will meet at a central point and start visiting the Santa Cruz district. Known as the previous Jewish Quarter, it is the most picturesque and delightful part of the city, with narrow winding cobbled streets and whitewashed houses.
You can sit outside at a bar, enjoy some tapas and watch the world go by, or wander through centuries-old gardens and relax on beautifully tiled benches.
The best experiences of Seville include wandering around the small squares lined with orange trees (especially Plazas Doña Elvira and Santa Cruz), getting lost in the maze of improbably narrow alleys, where the ancient houses lean so far toward each other that they almost seem to touch, and admiring the leafy patios of private mansions through their iron gates.
It is incredibly picturesque and full of history and stories, with many old palaces, churches, and hidden passageways.
Discover ancient buildings
The main sights in terms of buildings are the Cathedral and Giralda, formerly a minaret (mosque’s tower), the Alcázar (fortified royal palace) and the baroque Hospital of the Venerables (once a home for retired priests) whose chapel houses an excellent collection of paintings as well as murals by Valdés Leal; the hospital also holds temporary exhibitions.
The Archivo de Indias, which houses all maps and documents about Spain’s conquest of the New World, is open to the public and stages frequent exhibitions, as well as offering an unparalleled historical resource.
Get to enjoy a river cruise
After the walking tour, you will make your way to Puente de S. Telmo, 7 – Muelle de Turismo where you will enjoy a nice 1-hour river cruise.
During the cruise, you will discover the city through another perspective: one of its legendary river Guadalquivir.
You can choose among different departure times in the afternoon (from 2 pm to 6 pm every half hour during low season and 6 pm to 9:30 pm every half hour during high season). The cruise will end at its original departure point.
