Seville in 2 Days Itinerary

We had the opportunity to visit beautiful Seville in two days during a summer weekend, before moving on to the coast and the sea. Seville is one of the main cities of Andalusia, the southwestern part of Spain.

We were fascinated by this incredible city. The atmosphere in Seville is ‘caliente’, either because of the obvious Moroccan influences in the architecture of the buildings and squares, or because of the warm African climate, or because of the flamenco music that permeates the streets of the centre.

Visiting Seville in 2 days is possible and there are many interesting and fascinating places to explore. Here is our ‘2 day Seville itinerary’ that will take you on a discovery tour of this magical Spanish city!

2 day Seville Itinerary – DAY 1: Casco Antiguo, La Giralda, Seville Cathedral, Triana

The first day of our ‘2 day Seville Itinerary’ includes a visit to the historical centre of Seville, located in the Casco Antiguo district. We suggest setting aside at least two hours to explore the historical streets of the Casco Antiguo, such as Calle Sierpes, Calle Cuna and Calle Tetuán, where you’ll find plenty of shops to browse.

There are also lots of places in the old town where you can walk surrounded by lemon trees, such as the Patio de Banderas, a beautiful little square surrounded by white and yellow buildings, or Calle Mateos Gago, where you will find lots of cafés and restaurants that make this street one of the liveliest in the evening. The latter street will lead you to La Giralda and Seville Cathedral.

If you have to spent two days in Seville, make sure you check out the Giralda and the Cathedral. The Giralda is the tower of the Cathedral, but it’s actually older than the Cathedral itself. It was actually part of the original minaret that was built in the 11th century under Muslim control in south-western Spain. The Giralda has kept its oriental-style architecture, but it’s gradually being incorporated into the Cathedral, which was built by demolishing the original mosque.

Seville Cathedral is Gothic in style and is among the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world and the largest in Spain. Over the years it has undergone several modifications and additions, so that inside you will find spaces built in different architectural styles, from Baroque to Renaissance.

A very atmospheric space that we recommend you visit is the Patio de los Naranjos, or Orange Courtyard, which was part of the original mosque, traces of which are still preserved in the pointed arches around the perimeter.

In addition to visiting the Cathedral and the Patio de los Naranjos, we recommend that you climb to the top of La Giralda, following the ramps that will take you to the top of the tower, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city.

We recommend that you allow about an hour and a half or two to visit the Cathedral and La Giralda, bearing in mind that you may have to queue a bit to climb the tower. Precisely for this reason, we recommend that you buy your tickets online in advance from the official website as access is limited and also to save some time and not have to queue at the ticket office.

The cost of a full ticket (2024) is €12, while that of a guided tour is €20. Alternatively, you can purchase an audio guide at a cost of €4.

The visit, whether accompanied or not, starts at La Giralda, and then continues in the Cathedral.

We wrap up our first day of our “Two days in Seville Itinerary” with a visit to the Triana district, the famous flamenco quarter, which is on the other side of the Guadalquivir river that runs through the city from north to south. We suggest heading to Triana in the late afternoon and staying there in the evening, as it’s one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in Seville at night.

Barrio Triana is famous for its fiestas and the highest concentration of clubs where you can watch flamenco shows. In the evening, all the streets of this neighbourhood are invaded by music, so we recommend you stop for dinner at one of the venues along the pedestrian avenue Paseo de Nuestra Senora de la O that runs alongside the waterway.

Two days in Seville Itinerary – DAY 2: Plaza de España, Real Alcázar de Sevilla, Parasol o Setas, Alameda de Hércules

On the second day of our “Two days in Seville Itinerary”, we’ll start off with a visit to the Plaza de España, which is one of the most famous and photographed places in Seville. The Plaza de España is part of the huge and beautiful Parque de María Luisa garden, and it was built in the early 1900s for the Ibero-American Expo held in 1929. It’s a big, semi-circle square, completely surrounded by arcades that follow the course of a canal over 500 metres long. It’s enclosed by two imposing towers.

The portico columns, galleries, benches and the four bridges crossing the canal (symbol of the four kingdoms of Spain) are decorated with blue ceramic elements, making this one of the most beautiful places in Spain and a must-see during a visit of Seville in 2 days.

If you want to visit the Parque de María Luisa as well as the Plaza de España, we suggest you allow at least an hour, as the park is quite large. You can get into the Plaza de España for free.

A few minutes’ walk from the Plaza de España is the Real Alcázar de Sevilla, the Royal Palace of Seville, which was built in the 10th century by the Caliph of Córdoba. Despite all the subsequent modifications over the years, this building and its gardens have retained the original Moorish style. When you visit, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to an oriental country.

The gardens of the Real Alcázar de Sevilla are a very atmospheric place, home to almost 200 species of plants from all over the world. We recommend that you stop in the park and enjoy a relaxing stroll.

The price of admission to the Real Alcázar starts at €14.50, while entry to the gardens is free. Allow about an hour and a half to two hours to visit the Real Alcázar and the gardens.

The third stop on our second day of our “2 day Seville Itinerary” is the Setas de Sevilla, originally known as the Parasol. It’s a pretty cool building, shaped like a giant parasol, almost 30 metres high and stretching about 150 metres. It’s made of wood and concrete, with a network of cavities that gives it a light, airy feel. There are various businesses and restaurants in the Setas de Sevilla, and you can climb to the panoramic terrace at the top to enjoy a beautiful view of the city.

The last stop on this trip of two days in Seville is the Alameda de Hércules, which is a great place to visit in the evening as it is one of the busiest places for nightlife. The Alameda de Hércules is a big square built in the 1500s. It got its name from two big columns from a Roman temple dedicated to Hercules. There are lots of places to stop for some great Spanish tapas and bars to have a drink after dinner around this square.

This ‘2 day Seville Itinerary’ will take you to all the main and most important places in Seville. We’d recommend doing it on foot, as Seville is a city that lends itself perfectly to walking. Plus, just walking through the streets of the city centre is a magical and fascinating experience that we absolutely recommend you don’t miss.
