Sevilla guide for ordinary travelers

Wanderlust Wonderland brings you: a travel guide for ordinary travelers, with must-sees, tips and tricks and the most delicious food, for ordinary travelers, like you and me.

On these rainy days before the Christmas madness of December starts, I’m thinking of those lovely summer days, filled with sunshine, icecreams and delicious foods. Time to look back on Sevilla!

Sevilla is a lovely city in the southern parts of Spain. It was actually the first Spanish city that I ever visited and I absolutely loved it. I know you will too!

Must visit

There are lots and lots of gorgeous highlights the city has to offer. Here’s a list of some of my favourite things to do:

  • Wander through the Parque de Maria Luisa
  • Visit de Plaza d’Espana
  • Take gorgeous pictures in Casa de Pilatos
  • Enjoy the weather in Palacio de las Duenas
  • Take a stroll through the city at night, when the buildings light up in the golden streetlights

Tips and tricks

  • If you want to visit the Real Alcazar, make sure to book your ticket beforehand. We didn’t, and we ended up not visiting because the line was way too long.
  • Try to avoid visiting the city in July or August. Not only will it be way more crowded in the high season, you’ll also find that it’ll be way too warm to do anything. Try visiting in May or September
  • Lots of restaurants and shops close during the siësta hours (between two and five). Why not join in the siësta, rest a bit, read a book or take a swim!
  • A hotel with a swimming pool is an absolute must!

Must Eat

There’s so much yummy food to find in Seville! No need to go hungry, especially since it’s all really affordable. Some dishes you’ll just have to try:

  • A glass of Sangria!
  • Churros
  • Gazpacho
  • Rose icecream from Amorino
  • Tapas! We went to Pelayo Bar which was really good
  • If you’re looking for Italian food, you’ll have to go to L’oca Giuliva
