Getting to Seville and getting around
Flights are pretty frequent, we went from Gatwick with BA but Ryanair also flies there; you may as well just go with what’s cheaper.
There's a good variety of accommodation from big hotels, to chi chi boutique pieds a terre but if you want a bit more privacy and like to do you own cooking, I'd recommend an apartment. We stayed in a one bed, one bathroom apartment which had everything we needed but if you want something bigger, Spain Holiday who we booked through has a good range of sizes and prices.
Seville isn’t a huge city, it’s very walkable but there are also buses and local trains. Taxis aren’t too pricey and from the airport there’s a set fee for the journey into town so do a bit of research to make sure you know what you should be paying.
Seville is a brilliant city from which to explore other places. There are direct, cheap and reasonably fast trains to the lovely historical beach city of Cadiz and the sherry mecca of Jerez. Both are worth at least a day’s excursion.
The falling pound means that travelling to Europe certainly isn’t as cheap as it used to be, but Seville is still a good value option and you’ll probably be surprised by how little you spend for a top quality week or weekend away.
