Seville is Spain’s third largest city but arguably one of the most beautiful. While it has a sizable population, as a tourist, you just don’t feel it.

When to Visit
Seville is a beautiful city and it’s popular year-round, but please note that in the summer months, temperatures reach 40ºC or higher regularly and the heat can be stifling.
What to do in Seville
Andalusia is one of my favorite parts of Spain. The pace of life, the sunshine and food makes it one of the top spots to visit in Spain. Rent a car and hit up the big cities including Malaga, Granada, Seville — but don’t forget the small villages and other spots like Gibraltar (not technically part of Spain), Tarifa and Cadiz.
Then there are beautiful small towns like Conil de la Frontera—where I studied Spanish briefly—with picturesque white-painted houses set against the perfect blues of the Andalusian skies and seas.
Learn Spanish! Spain is a great place to learn the language. I’ve taken a few different Spanish language courses in Spain, but my favorites have been the ones learning Spanish in Andalusia. The Andalusian accent is a bit different than other Spanish regional dialects, but the region is an absolute fantastic place to base yourself for studying. I recommend the Clic Spanish Courses in Seville or Gondwana Community which offers courses in both Tarifa and Conil.
Seville Tours & Trips
Seville offers a lot to see, so tackling it all by yourself might be a little overwhelming. Taking a tour will save you time and money and show you parts of the city that you might otherwise overlook by yourself. Take a look at this selection of recommended Seville tours.
LGBTQ – Gay Seville Guide
Seville is definitely the gay hotspot of Andalusia. The city has a gay hotel (which was mediocre) and there are a handful of gay bars and small clubs. But the city life in general in Seville makes it a relatively gay-friendly place. The rest of Andalusia is perfect for a romantic getaway.
I love doing road trips in Andalusia, where you can discover small towns and cities, try the local foods and just generally take in all the picturesque scenery.
Seville Hotel Deals
During peak tourist season in Seville, it might be a challenge to find quality, affordable accommodation — but there’s usually decent deals to be found on search engines like Booking.com, Agoda.com or Hotels Combined.
The trick is to finding a room that’s not directly in the city center, but in one of the less central neighborhoods (often where you’ll find cool hipster places to stay, anyways!).
