Take this shore excursion to Seville, and skip the long lines to the Royal Palace of Alcazar, the most famous sight of the city. Explore the charming district of Santa Cruz, and go inside the Gothic cathedral and its bell tower La Giralda.

What to expect?

  • We will pick you up in the morning just outside the ship for a transfer to Seville – look for our sign just as you exit the ship. Once in Seville, you will meet our English speaking expert guide, and together we will explore the charming barrio of Santa Cruz, along with the old Jewish quarter of Seville with its narrow streets and whitewashed houses, flowered balconies, and hidden squares shaded by orange trees. Let the scent of oranges accompany you, as you wander through this beautiful city.

  • We will take you on a unique tour featuring an external visit to Seville’s magnificent 15th-century Gothic cathedral and its famous bell tower La Giralda, a symbol of the city. Across the square is the entrance to the impressive Real Alcazar Palace completed after the Christian re-conquest in typical Múdejar style. With a maze of rooms, exquisitely decorated patios and exotic gardens, it is one of the oldest royal residences in Europe still in use today. We can skip-the-line for an inside visit to this enchanting site (bear in mind that there is now a metal detector security gate, which can cause some queuing even with our fast-track tickets), and we will guide you through this impressive complex. We will also see the adjacent 16th century Renaissance building of the Archivo de Indias, which houses a treasure of information on the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus. It has a tremendous monumental and artistic value, and it is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

  • You will normally have some free time in Seville to explore on your own, have lunch in one of the local restaurants (extra), visit the inside of the cathedral (if open during your free time), or climb the Giralda Tower (subject to opening and accessibility). In the afternoon, there will be a transfer back to the Cadiz Port, which will safely bring you to the ship in time for departure.
