Seville Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Working on our itinerary for our first trip to Spain and currently the Seville leg of the journey (plan to visit Seville, Granada and Madrid). A little bit about us -- We love to stay busy and see a lot, we like to plan a full book and omit lesser priority things if we run out of time or energy. We're in our early 30s and enjoy food, wine, history, ruins, architecture, culture, socializing, etc. We will fly out October 6 and return October 16th, in and out of Madrid.

Friday: Arrive Seville early afternoon from an early morning arrival in Madrid. Visit Cathedral and Giralda tower during the siesta time. Go ceramics shopping in Triana and possibly visit a few other shops in the afternoon to early evening. Then tapas! Maybe take in a view from a rooftop bar?

Saturday: Royal Alcazar and Apartments first thing in the morning (get pre-booked tickets). Visit Palacio de las Dueñas and Museo Palacio de la Condesa de Librija in the afternoon. Catch a flamenco show at Casa de la Memoria or La Casa del Flamenco Auditorio Alacantara. Explore Barrio Santa Cruz via a RS walk in the evening/night time and eat more tapas. Maybe a horse drawn carriage ride if they operate into the evening/night?

Sunday: Check out the art for sale at the Plaza del Museo Art Market in the morning. Visit the Museo Arqueológico (quick visit), Parque de María Luisa and the Plaza de Espana. Explore and eat in the evening, maybe a nicer dinner this night?

For Sunday, do you think there would be time after the art market and before the Plaza de Espana area to visit Italica? I have contacted Paul McGrath (The Other Spain) and he said he could do a 2.5 hour trip (total time) to Italica. I definitely don't mind paying a little extra for the knowledge of a guide and to avoid any potential transportation hiccups with public transportation. I'm thinking we might have time for it but I don't want to make the day too packed. I had originally planned to do some shopping and putting around Seville this day until I realized that most shops will be closed, so I was thinking Italica could be a interesting way to spend part of our day.

Thank you!!!
