2 1/2 day sevilla itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi. This trip is my DH's 50th b'day present. I spent a semester in Madrid 20 years ago and am so happy to return to Spain. This is DH"s first trip. We have 3 nights in Sevilla (Fri, Sat and Sunday) and then we go to Madrid for 4 nights.
I have never been to Seville and need some help with our itinerary. I want this part of the trip to be relaxing. We love walking around neighborhoods for the flavor. We will be visiting the Prado in Madrid so will not be visiting the fine arts museum.
We arrive in Madrid at 7 am from the US and we will then take bus or cab to Atocha to get the 11 am train to Sevilla. We are renting an apt. in the Arenal neighborhood. We should arrive around 2 pm. We will take a quick shower and unpack.
I am thinking a Santa Cruz walk and a quick view of the Catedral and La Giralda would be a good first day intro. Then we shall have tapas, wak a bit more, and off to bed by 10.
First full day - Concepcion walking tour of Sevilla in the am and Concepcion tour of Alcazar in the afternoon. Can we also fit in a Triana visit since the shops are closed on Sunday?
Sunday-since the Cathedral and Giralda don't open til 2:30, I was looking at the Art Market for Sunday am, along with the Parque Maria Luisa and Plaza Espana and an afteroon visit to the Cathedral. Is this too much? Is this all walkable or would I take a bus? Can i fit the Cathedral in Sat?
Casa de la Memoria for the 7:30 show. also wanted to see the Metropol Parasol for sunset.
Are my days too crowded? Are there any hidden gems that I am missing? Thanks for your help.
