Seville, or Sevilla in Spanish, is one of the most popular destinations in Spain. Seville is the spiritual home of both flamenco and bullfighting and it has some of the most beautiful gardens and buildings in all of Spain. Its Semana Santa celebrations at Easter are famous the world over. Note that it gets very hot in the summer - avoid Seville in July and August unless you can stand temperatures of 50ºC (120ºF).

Guided Tours of Seville

Adventurous travelers shun guided tours. They shouldn't. The amount a guide can fit into a tour is impossible when exploring independently, and the insights they can offer are often much better than you'll find in a book.
