In the evening, head to one of Seville’s lively traditional tapas bars, such as El Rinconcillo, the oldest tapas bar in Seville, then finish the night by experiencing a passionate flamenco performance at one of the city’s many authentic clubs.
Don't Forget Before you Fly

You just need to make sure that your passport has at least six months validity left, on the day you travel. The local currency is the euro and it’s a good idea to change some in advance so that you have some cash when you arrive, especially if you plan to travel by public transport or taxi. You can also find currency exchange services at Seville Airport. Bear in the mind that the temperatures in Seville can be extremely hot in the summer months, so suitable clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses are a must.
