Seville | 48 Hours in the City

We have another guest post this week, this time from former Londoner
and long-term Seville resident Peter Tatford, aka Seville Concierge

With an enticing combination of historical atmosphere, fine weather, local colour, and a growing reputation for good food and wine, Seville has become one of Europe’s top destinations for short break holidays. If you’re travelling with a family or as a group, or simply want more independence than a hotel gives you, renting a self-catering holiday apartment may well be a good option, and there are plenty to choose from in Seville.

The labyrinth of small narrow streets can make Seville a difficult city to find your way around, so you’ll need a good map. A thoughtful apartment owner should provide one, or you can get one from the main Tourism Office in the Plaza San Francisco, on the corner next to Bar Laredo. The staff there are very helpful and you can also use the computers. There is another office on the Avenida de la Constitución near the Puerta de Jerez.

Here is my quick guide to getting the best out of a two-night stay in Seville.

The Making Of The Granada Videos

Here are some photos from our recent trip to Granada to photograph and film apartments, the city and its monuments, and tapas bars. The photo above shows the setting where we shot the introduction for the two videos of Alhambra. The builders were just amazing with us: they kindly let us in and stopped working for nearly half an hour so we could have the best possible sound conditions for the videos. A BIG thank you to all.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Gabrielle for her wonderful work as a presenter of It is an honour to be both her workmate and also good friends.
