Getting around Seville

By far the best way to get around Seville is on foot. The narrow alleys, lack of parking and infinite one-way streets make driving complicated at best, highly stressful at worst. Best avoided, unless your hotel has a car park or garage (see below).

If you want to learn about the city as you walk, often discovering little-known attractions, you can take a themed guided tour (artistic, monumental, religious, botanical, gastronomic - tapas, nighttime - flamenco etc).

Welcome to Seville! One of the best cities to ride: good weather, flat city and more than 160 km of bike lanes. Hire a bicycle for hours, days or weeks and explore Seville on your way. 

The perfect plan for families, a trip with friends, teambuilding group activity or enjoying some quality time on your own pace.


If you live in Seville, either short or long-term, you will find the buses very useful; many people make use of the bike lanes, either with their own bicyle, or using Sevici , the city's bike-hire scheme. For heading out to the suburbs, or across the southern part of the city, the Metro is very convenient. For short journeys, taxis are cheap and plentiful.
