Seville - top 5 things to see and do??
 
Hola!

Off to Seville next week for a few days, no car but can walk miles and use public transport, what would you guys suggest for the top 5 things to see and do in 4/5 days?

Cheers. Is the palace worth a visit?

Looks like it is still going to be 30 plus in the day, is that normal temps for this time of year? (not that I'm complaining, we like hot weather!)

We usually take the open top bus tour wherever we go to give ourselves an idea of the place. You may get a reduction if you have proof of age. We use the 65 card. The centre of Sevilla is beautiful so just wander round the streets, call into the cathedral, have a coffee, tapa and feel the wonderful atmosphere of the city. We enjoyed the boat trip too. Have a great time.

Yes, worth a visit. Like any city it can be oppressively hot in Seville.

The above is in the Spanish Gardens where they have a long row of tiled images for each province of Spain.

Archivos de India - many valuable documents on Spanish Empire
Walk the streets around the old town
Royal Alcazar of Sevilla
Triana - the pottery works, fascinating

We're also thinking of visiting Seville, although tbh have been thinking of it for a long time. Really ought to get around to doing it. Being only a few hours away we'll drive there. Can anybody recommend a midrange hotel in a good location from which to walk out and explore which also has car parking.

Easy comfortable walk to the city centre, Underground parking. Great views from the roof terrace which has a pool and bar.

Bookings.com has the filters for Sevilla , by city area, parking etc . We tend to opt for NH chain, good sensible, reliable, nothing exceptional. Although last time there Rey Alfonso X - a classic

I often find that the parking filter doesn't actually mean that the hotel itself has parking, merely that there is parking nearby.

Novotel Sevilla

Avenida Eduardo Dato 71

41005
SEVILLE
SPAIN
We always stay here.
Next door to the Sevilla fc stadium, easy to get to from the A92 motorway, secure underground car park, pets welcome, loads of bars/cafes.

Although not in the center of town there is a metro station close by and loads of buses. It's around a 20min walk to the cathedral.
