A personalised itinerary for a family stay in Seville

Before we went to Seville, I hit google looking for some itineraries that we could possible follow during our trip. They were clearly written by young, energetic jet-setters who were able to cram as much as possible into their fifteen hour days and barely stop for a breather.

Seville

UH OH

I don’t know about your family, but there’s no way I can convince my kids to visit three museums and two palaces in a whole week let alone a day! We are slow ed-venturers, which was a challenge in itself when visiting Seville, so we devised our own slower-paced itinerary.

Here are some of our ideas on how you could spend some time in Seville. We have tried to mix up slower days intermittently with faster paced days because there is a lot to do in Seville.

Day 1

You could easily spend an ENTIRE day at the Parque Maria Luisa and visiting el Museo de belle arte. Take a picnic and hire a bike for a bit of fun.

Day 2

Climb the Torre Del Oro (free on Mondays) and then spend the rest of the day west of the canal in Triana. Walk across the bridge, visit the market, the tile museum, explore the back streets, walk down Calle Betis and admire the canal (stop off for a drink but don’t eat here!), maybe take in some Flamenco in one of the bars.

Day 3

Start off with a City Bike tour (or PastView). In the afternoon La casa de Ciencia offers a world of learning and weirdness.

Day 4

Get there early for opening and have a look for Cristopher Columbus grave in the Cathedral, climb the steep ramps up to La Giralda. In the afternoon pop over to the Real Alcazar and admire the beautiful gardens.

Day 5

Spend the morning exploring the streets of Santa Cruz and in the afternoon pop to the Museo del Baile Flamenco and learn about the history of flamenco. The flamenco shows at the museum start at 5pm but you must book well in advance as these sell out.

Day 6

Explore the roof tops of Seville with a trip to some wonderful bars and pools. Sample some tapas, dip you toes in the pools, enjoy a cheeky cocktail. Quickly pop in to Casa de Pilatos and finish up at Las Setas for sunset.

Day 7

Spend the morning on the canal. You could book a canoe trip or a boat cruise. To finish off the nautical feel, pop up to the Museum Pabellon de la navegacion.

Day 8

I have added this is an a bonus day or a swap day as its perfect for kids and families. It is a bit on the pricey side however.

Isla Magica or Aquapolis
