    Hi Adam, great post. I’ve been to Spain twice but yet to make it to Seville. This post reminds me not to miss it next time. The great tapas alone sure make it a lot more inviting.

      The tapas in Seville are truly amazing – the best food I’ve had in Spain!

    I love Sevilla for all of the reasons you listed! It pleasantly surprised me too. I came from Granada and didn’t think I’d like it because it was a larger, more touristy city than Granada. However, I truly enjoyed Sevilla! Great to see what you’re up to, Adam! I’ve been out for quite a while lately, so it’s good to catch up on everything.

      Seems some people either fall in love at first sight, and others need a bit of time for it to sink it…but I guess many of us seem to fall for the city!

    Adam, cool tips. I arrived in Seville yesterday and you’re going to be my virtual tour guide today! I’m definitely going to check out those tapas bars and maybe some dress shopping at the market on Thursday. Amazing post – thanks for sharing.

    For me, it was love at first sight. I fell in love with Seville the moment I laid my eyes on its streets lined with orange trees.

    Also, attaching colours to places – I do that all the time :-)

      Oh I’m glad I’m not alone attaching colors to cities! And yep – the orange trees pretty much had my admiration from the moment I saw them

    I love Sevilla! Andalusia is one of my favorite parts of the world! :) I went there in November so I’m dying to come back in the Spring and see all the flowers blooming..esp in Cordoba.

      Hey Karisa – funny you mention Cordoba as it’s probably one of the bigger cities of Anadalusia that I just never made it to! Guess it’s just another reason to return :)

    I totally agree with you re needing a bit of time to get under Seville’s skin. It’s like the city I’m from – Melbourne – which doesn’t have the big sights, but has the food and culture. Seville’s amazing for all those reasons you’ve listed above!

      Hey Caityln, thanks for the insight, especially re: Melbourne. You’re right that it’s sometimes those cities that are lacking in sightseeing attractions that need the extra time to fall for. But once you do…. ahh!! I love those kinds of cities :)

    ¡Estoy feliz que te gusta Sevilla! We love it there and can’t wait to go back. It’s nice to see that Spanish is clicking for you as well…now you just have to take the same approach with German. :)

      Gracias Ryan! And I really appreciate all your Seville tips. Not really sure how to apply this to learning German, but at least I’m pretty inspired by languages at the moment !

    Yes yes YES! Seville really is the perfect city for me in many ways. I’ve been jealously eyeing the weather there now, while I sit in minus degrees in Austria, surrounded by snow…imagining what it’d be like in Seville right now! I think if I had to live in Spain again right now, Seville is definitely high on my list of possible bases. Hoping to get back there soon…!

      Glad to hear Seville would be high on your list of places to live/revisit in Spain, Sam! After my month there I’d definitely consider spending more time there in the future

    Sevilla is a beautiful city. I visited the city just one time, in the middle of summer (45 degrees Celsius), and I loved the vibrant atmosphere. Good restaurants, great palace and beautiful parks. Have fun!

    PS: your video made me smile a lot

      Awww thank you Koos! That video was awful, jajaj, but I’m glad you enjoyed it. And the restaurants here are definitely hard to beat!!

    I visited Sevilla for the first time in 2002 for just 2 days and fell completely in love with this wonderful city. Return visits were a must until eventually I moved there in 2006. I left last year but still love my frequent visits. You’ll be back because it’s pull is just too strong.

    • Adam
      6 February 2014

      Definitely can already feel the pull, Rena. That’s great you got to live here for a few years – must’ve been an incredible experience! But….how did you deal with the hot, hot summers??

    Welcome to the club – of Sevilla lovers. And yes, you’re right, it is possible to walk in Sevilla, it is colourful and the Plaza de Espana is really photogenic.

    Always delighted to hear of someone else discovering the charm of this wonderful city! For those who haven’t taken on the challenge of learning the lingo like you, many more locals speak English here than used to, so it’s much easier to get by without now. Although much better with, obviously :)

      I definitely agree with Fiona – the adoption of English has really taken off in the years I’ve lived here. And La Pepona…ofu, I went last week for the first time, how did that happen?!

      Enjoy your last moments here – I’m glad you love it!

    some great photos! I loved Seville but admit to being more partial to Granada…. though we did spend more time there… perhaps if I returned it would be a different story.

    • Adam
      6 February 2014

      Yep, Granada was my favorite on the first trip, but the more time I spend in Seville, the more I love it. Definitely worth giving it another chance

    It looks wonderful and l am dying to go! I can’t wait till Ryanair starts that route again from Malta. Glad you are having a good time!!!!

      That must be a seasonal route I guess. Hope you make it back once it starts up again soon!

    It’s been years since I visited Seville but your beautiful photos have taken me right back! I remember taking long walks around the city, along the river and through the narrow lanes of the old Jewish quarter. And, yes, I remember the sunshine and those vivid blue skies! This has me ready to go back :-)

    • Adam
      6 February 2014

      Oh yes – Barrio de Santa Cruz (the old Jewish quarter) is a lovely neighborhood to explore! And with all the walking I’ve done, I don’t have to worry about putting on any weight because of all the tapas I’ve been eating. It’s like the city is a perfect balance

    I do so love the Sevilla: her people; her art and history; and her attitude to food!

      Seems I’m not alone with those same sentiments Henry!
