My favorite stop in Seville was at this historic Casa de Pilatos. This Andalusian Palace has stunning architecture, with tile-lined walls. We came back a second time to just to soak it all in.

After visiting Casa de Pilatos, we fell in love with the traditional tiles in the area. Across the street, there’s this incredible shop, Coco Sevilla, that sells vintage tiles. We picked up a few to bring home for decoration.

4. Head up to the Metropol Parasol

One of the more modern buildings in Seville includes the Metropol Parasol. You pay to enter and ascend up to the walking platform. Up top, you have one of the best viewpoints over the city. I recommend coming right before sunset as the city lights up from the sun’s glow.

5. See Plaza de Espana

On an early morning, we came to see the Plaza de Espana before the crowds. Well worth the early wake-up call, we had the entire place to ourselves! We walked around and then afterward explore the gardens.

6. Tour the Real Alcázar de Sevilla

One of those sights you need to book tickets for in advance and well worth the line is the Real Alcázar de Sevilla. This royal palace is immense in size, with one ornate room after another. We purchased an audio tour and so happy we did to have the opportunity to learn more about the history behind the palace.

7. Walk along the Canal de Alfonso XIII

If you want to get a beautiful view of the city, head straight to the canal for a great walk along the water.

We almost did not visit as the lines were intense (book tickets in advance!) but we managed to sneak in on a rainy day. Grabbing an audio tour, we spent a few hours in the stunning cathedral — it is truly incredible.

9. See a Classic Flamenco Show

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
