You will be happy to know that Seville is a small, walkable city, with so many attractions and experiences all laid out in a way that will make your visit very simple. Seville has a good bus, metro, and tram system for visitors. Taxis are also easily available, hailed off the street.
Getting around Seville
If you are a typical visitor to Seville you should not need to ever use public transport or taxis. A major part of the charm of Seville is that you can walk from place to place.
- Even if you are on a long trip, staying away from the city centre, it is still no more than a 20 minutes walk to anywhere in Seville. Or you could use the Sevici bike sharing system, a big success in the city. The HoHo bus in Seville is also an option for short stayers, but it has mixed reviews.
- The only public transport useful to tourists is the tram service which takes you to some of the attractions housed away from the old historic center.
- Taxis certainly make sense if you are a family with young children, or even a couple having a late night out. Distances are small and fares are cheap. Seville is an inexpensive city to get around.
Best time to visit Seville
August is the only time of the year you should really watch out for. Seville sizzles like a frying pan, and pretty much the entire city shuts down every afternoon. Apart from that, any time of the year is a good time to be in Seville. The Seville Xmas is exceptional, and so is springtime with Semana Santa and Abril Feria. Weather wise, May / June, and October / November are considered to be the best times to visit Seville.
Seville really does not need a tourist card because travel is on your own two feet, and even the most popular attractions are relatively cheap, and without long lines that need skip the line entries. Infact, there used to be a Sevilla Card but that has been discontinued due to low demand. If you plan on using a lot of public transport, you can get a discounted travel card for Seville.
