Our bus arrived sooner than expected in Sevilla very early in the morning and a couple hours before we could check in to our Airbnb apartment. Nothing was open, it was still quite dark which made it difficult to get a sense of direction in unfamiliar territory. So we just hung out at the bus station until it got light out. Even then it was tricky to pick what direction our apartment was in. That is the case in cities that are 2,200 years old with tight and curvy passageways.
It was nice to be in Spain. We were excited to get into the red wine and tapas pronto. We found a few good spots to eat in Lisbon, but it was not an easy task. The food in our opinion was very so-so in Lisbon.
After ditching our rollie bags at our airbnb apartment we decided to get out there and explore this charming city and check out the scene.
So…What to do in Seville (Sevilla) Spain?
My recommendation for your first day would be to just simply walk around the centre of the city. Get oriented, find some cafes or tapas bars and enjoy life.
The most notable or noticeable observations of Seville are that the people have a zest for life (tapas bars get rowdy at night), the imposing Seville Cathedral and La Giralda, the giant Metropol Parasol, Plaza de España, the Alcázar Gardens, and the Puente de Isabel II that crosses over to Triana a neighbourhood on the west bank of the Guadalquivir River that was historically separated from the main city.
Lets take a look at some photos to get started in Sevilla.
