Tour description provided by Viator
Discover Seville, southern Spain’s most flamboyant city, on a full-day sightseeing tour! With an expert guide on hand, head off by luxury minibus to see top Seville sights such as Plaza de España, and UNESCO World Heritage-listed attractions like Seville Cathedral and Royal Alcazar Palace. Pass through the charming Santa Cruz and Triana neighborhoods, float down Guadalquivir River on a sightseeing cruise, and visit Royal Maestranza Bullring and its museum.
After a pickup from your central Seville hotel, set out on your full-day sightseeing tour around spectacular Seville – the capital of Spain’s Andalucía region. As you travel by luxury minibus, sit back and relax, listening to your expert guide explain the history of this charismatic city.
Pass Plaza de España – the lavish square in Maria Luisa Park – and learn of its creation for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair. Set in the middle of elaborate Moorish-style gardens, the square was built in a classic Renaissance Revival style, and is now home to several important Government buildings.
As you travel, your guide will point out other top Seville attractions like the Palace of San Telmo and Torre del Oro – an eye-catching building that once held precious metals from America. Continue through Seville’s Santa Cruz quarter and you’ll soon understand why so many describe it as the city’s prettiest neighborhood. Watch out for two UNESCO World Heritage-listed attractions here – Royal Alcazar Palace (or Real Alcazar Palace as it's known in Spain) and Seville Cathedral.
After a break for lunch at your own expense, meet your guide back on board your minibus and then visit the Bullring of the Royal Maestranza. Also known as Plaza del Toros, La Maestranza is widely thought of as the mecca of bullfighting – steeped in history and tradition. After exploring the actual bullring, head inside the bullfighting museum to explore at leisure.
Your afternoon continues with a panoramic tour around Seville’s Triana district – easily the city’s most bohemian and vibrant neighborhood. Pass the Isabel II Bridge and enjoy views across the glistening Guadalquivir River. Before your tour ends back at your hotel, enjoy a 30-minute sightseeing cruise down the river – allowing you to see all the city sights by water as well.
