Plaza de Espana

This is one of the most beautiful places in Seville which you must visit if you are planning your tour of Andalucia. Plaza de Espana is a very colourful piazza. You will be able to take some Instagrammable photos of the Andalusia Culture. This square is composed of fountains, canals, bridges and stunning architecture.

We have been twice. The first time in the early afternoon where all the colour were really bright. Then during the sunset, where we could see all the colours changing and it was absolutely amazing.

The plaza is situated inside Maria Luisa Park. It is next to Avenida Isabella La Catolica, a pedestrianised avenue with ice-cream sellers and bike rental stands.
This is the best way to reach the park, entering near the Teatro Lope de Vega and Fabrica del Tabaco.

You also can reach the park from the Prado de San Sebastián on one side, or the river on the other.

Real Alcazaba

The Real Alcazar of Seville is one of the most representative monumental compounds in the city, the country and the Mediterranean culture as a whole.

This is well known also as the Arab Royal Palace of Sevilla, and the film location of Game of Thrones in Sevilla.
The ticket is not expensive it’s only 9 euro and 50 cents. For those under 16 years old the access is free. For the student between 17 and 25, the ticket is just 2 euro.

Inside of the Alcazaba is really stunning and in your Seville itinerary 3 days, you must visit this amazing monument.

Plaza de Toros

La Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza is the name of the bullring of Sevilla. The exact construction date is unknown, as it went through wars, crises and different architects took over the project.

The building was partially destroyed in 1805 by a hurricane, an incredibly uncommon phenomenon in this part of the world.

This is one of the most important plazas in Spain. It has appeared in many movies and of course, it is one of the main buildings in Sevilla.

A visit to Plaza de Toros needs to be in you Seville itinerary 3 days. It is one of the main attractions of the tour of Andalucia.
One characteristic that makes this plaza unique is its shape: The arena is not a perfect circle like most of the other plazas, this one is elliptical.

Seville Cathedral

We were surprised when we saw the Cathedral. As it is after Plaza de Espana we thought there was nothing better. But actually, both of them are amazing and it is a must see in Seville Spain.

In your Seville itinerary you must know about Seville cathedral opening hours: Winter (September to June):
Mondays 11:00 to 15:30; Tuesdays to Saturdays 11:00 to 17:00; Sundays 14:30 to 18:30.
Summer (July & August): Mondays 9:30 to 14:30; Tuesdays to Saturdays 9:30 to 16:30; Sundays 14:30 to 18:30.

The tickets are not too expensive. It is only 9 euro and we really recommend to purchase your tickets online to avoid the long queue.

In your Seville itinerary 3 days for sure, you will pass by Metropol Parasol, it is almost impossible to miss it.

What is the ideal itinerary for 10 days in Spain

When we organised our ideal itinerary for 10 days in Spain we spent at least one month to plan everything as we wanted. The flight from London to Malaga, the accommodation and the car.

To rent a car in Spain is cheap, you can find really good deals, like for a day it is even 7 euro but without insurance. Once we landed in Malaga, as Alessia used to work for IHG company we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, very close to the airport and just 30 minutes by bus to Malaga city centre.

The day after we came back to the airport to pick up the car and to start our road trip going towards Gibraltar, stopping by Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella and Puerto Banús. All of them one more beautiful than the other.

We spent one day in Gibraltar and stayed overnight close to Los Barrios, which is a quiet area, not too far from La Linea de la Concepcion, so we were able to go with the car and come back to the hotel.

TopTips: For your visit in Gibraltar it is very difficult to enter with the car, and there are a lot of security controls, even worse than an airport, so the easiest and quickest way it will be to leave the car outside and cross the board by walk.
In your day in Gibraltar, you must see the monkeys.

A Day trip from Sevilla to Cadiz

Cadiz needs to be in your tour of Andalucia, especially during the summer as has got the best beaches ever. You can spend two or three-night and enjoy the weather and amazing food.

We have been to a really nice restaurant, which was an open one with the table outside and we ate the best fish ever and the service of all of the people working there was incredible, busy but ready to help you to find the best choice for yourself.

Remember it for your visit to Cadiz, Taberna el Tio de la Tiza.

The best thing about Cadiz? If you find the perfect Airbnb you will love it.
Alessia book the accommodation only for the stunning view, the sea, and actually we were lucky to reach the city centre it was only 30 minutes by walk or 15 minutes by train or bus.

Day trip from Seville to Granada

Granada was our last stop before coming back to Malaga for the other two days and then going back to London.
It is a really cool city where two or 3 days in Granada should be enough for your ideal itinerary for 10 days in Spain.

One of the best things we discover in Granada are the amazing tapas served in one of the coolest tapas bars ” Los Manueles”.
In one side is a restaurant where you can sit and have a proper dinner and to the opposite side, there is a typical Spanish Bar. It is the perfect place where to have an aperitif with cerveza and tapas.

One of the most important things to see in Granada is the “Alhambra.”
The tickets to see the Alhambra are not easy to find, so you need to plan your 10 days in Spain really in advance.

If you are unable to find the tickets there are a lot of viewpoints where to take pictures of the Alhambra.

Book here your ticket for the Alhambra in Granada.

Visiting the Alhambra Granada

There is Mirador de San Nicolas one of the best points to see the Alhambra Granada.As I said we plan it for one month trying to do our best to see the best of the tour of Andalucia. We terminate our road trip of Andalucia in Malaga as the flight are cheaper than the other cities.

We stayed for three days so at least we were able to discover the city and to relax a bit before coming back to our routine in London.

If you are like us, especially after a very long trip around the Andalucia you will spend a few hours exploring the city centre and then spending the rest of the day on the beach.

Having more than 10 days you can add another stop and after Granada, you can stop by Cordoba which is really nice as well.

Seville 3 days itinerary

From Granada to Cordoba by car is 2 hours and 15 minutes more or less, it always depends on how many stops you do and for how long.
Cordoba to Malaga is 2 hours.
In 10 days you have the possibility to do it, but our suggestions are to add a couple of more days, as especially for the person who is driving it is really stressful, hard and you can’t enjoy all the things you have around.

Remember that the best memory of a trip will never be any of the pictures that you take; it will be those unique moments that fill your soul.

Everyone knows that land in Madrid is cheaper than to land in Seville. Madrid Barajas is a big airport, and it is the Capital, so a lot of flights companies offer bargains from time to time. Don’t be afraid if you find a cheap flight to Madrid, you can still reach Seville for a day trip.

Madrid is an amazing city, and it is situated in the centre of Spain. If you are planning to reach Seville from Madrid, I will avoid the idea to go by car. The journey will take you almost 5 hours.

It makes the idea to do a day trip from Madrid to Seville really impossible. Instead, take a ride on a fast train. It is not expensive if you book your ticket in advance, and the ride is just about 2 hours.

  4. Monidipa Dutta says:

    For a taste of sunny Andalucía, Seville combines the best of many worlds: extravagant Moorish architecture, exuberant street life, and affordable, authentic Spanish tapas. I found the atmosphere of Seville to be incredibly picturesque, with the Giralda tower in the skyline and fiery flamenco in the streets.

  5. Laurie Gannon says:

    This makes me want to plan a trip! And anytime I can stay in an Airbnb in a new city or town, I’m happy. It makes me feel as though I am having a more authentic experience in the location. And please point me in the direction to a GREAT tapas bar. I want ALL the tapas!
