Go to the Feria in Seville, or avoid it

Jump to last reply

We are celebrating our 20th anniversary in Spain this May and I have discovered that our planned 2 nights in Seville (May 10 and 11) correspond to the Feria. The hotel prices were my first clue - it is $100 more per night for our first choice! I've been trying to figure out if we should keep our original itinerary or change it to avoid the Feria. There are many blogs that say to avoid the event because it is very crowded and a mostly private event for locals, while others say it is wonderful to see everyone dressed up and some public party tents are available.

Some background. My husband and I are in our mid 40s, have never been to Spain, are looking forward to a romantic, relaxed vacation with no kids for a change! We are not young party people anymore and not a big fan of crowds, however we love experiencing new things.

Our original Itinerary is Madrid, Seville, Granada, Barcelona - but it would be easy to flip and travel Madrid, Granada, Seville, Barcelona. We will be flying to Barcelona from either city. If we change the itinerary we will arrive in Seville the Monday after the party ends.
Will there still be great flamenco performances to attend in the city on a Monday night or will everyone be sleeping it off after the fireworks on Sunday? Also, we would be saving a decent amount of money by avoiding the Feria.

Thanks so much for your always thoughtful advice.
