Everything we did on our two day action packed trip in Sevilla, Spain!
- If you’re driving one way from Faro, Portugal to Sevilla, Spain it will take about 2 hours give or take. Our car was dropped off at the airport as it would no longer be required in Sevilla and we taxied to our hotel.
- We stayed at the Best Western on Calle Cervantes in the Historic district which was walking distance from the plaza on Alemeda de Hercules. We suggest you choose an open air patio restaurant in the plaza to enjoy the tapas for lunch with a glass of Spanish wine. We also walked to the Plaza de Espana and the Gothic Sevilla Cathedral and went out to supper at a restaurant recommended by the hotel and it certainly was not disappointing. When in doubt ask at the desk! The tapas at the street table and the main at an inside table were both very well prepared.
- We took a stroll along the pedestrian friendly Calle Rey Juan Carlos. This should not be missed as the route runs beside the river in a park like setting. That afternoon we visited the Alcazar Castle and had a few well spent hours in the Castle and gardens.
- Late afternoon, we reserved at a flamenco club to see a song & dance performance. The guitar playing was excellent. Not being fluent in the language or culture, I found the tone of the songs on the depressing side but the dancing was talented and interesting, but again not inspiring. That said, when in Seville I challenge you to make up your own mind with the knowledge that the flamenco experience should not be missed. We later on ventured through some side streets following the performance and had more tapas on the way back to our hotel.
Over all, I would not hesitate to say that Sevilla was an enjoyable “plus” and should not be bypassed if you have the opportunity.
