Seville, Spain

The city of Seville is as Spanish as they come, with a criss-cross of streets full of history and outdoor cafés brimming with tapas and bon vivants!

Seville is Spain at its best. You won’t find mass tourism here, since these extremely friendly Spaniards speak little English. All the same, they do their best to help you find your way around their beautiful city. This Southern Spanish gem has the largest historic centre in Europe, enough to explore for days on end. Make sure to visit the magnificent cathedral in the city centre, where you can enjoy fabulous views of Seville from the top.
