How to Get to Seville, Spain

By | December 16, 2022

There are no direct flights from Russia to Seville, in any case, you will have to fly with a connection in Madrid or Barcelona (Aeroflot, Iberia), or through Malaga, which accepts charters from Moscow during the season. All these Spanish cities have several direct flights a day to the Andalusian capital of Seville, the flight time is from 40 to 60 minutes.

From San Pablo Airport to the city center can be reached by bus Especial Aeropuerto or taxi in about half an hour. Buses depart every 20-30 minutes from Monday to Saturday, on Sunday – a little less often. The first flight from the airport starts at 5:45, the last at 00:15. In the opposite direction – at 5:15 and 00:45, respectively. Departure from Seville’s Plaza de Armas bus station, with stops at the Santa Justa railway station, the Prado bus station and the Golden Tower (Torre del Oro). Check clothingexpress for information about visa to Spain.

By train

Seville can also be easily reached by train, the main railway station Santa Justa (Santa Justa) is located in the northern part of the city, a 10-minute drive from the center. High-speed ABE trains to Madrid leave from here (journey time is only 2.5 hours, up to 20 departures per day), as well as local, regional and long-distance trains. For example, to Malaga, where there is a large airport, no more than 2 hours by train.

By bus

To travel around colorful Andalusia, it is better to use buses. There are two bus stations in Seville. The first – “Prado” (El Pradi), is located closer to the center, which can be reached by almost all buses. Flights depart from here for the most part to the cities of the Andalusian provinces (with the exception of Huelva). The second is the Plaza de Armas. It is located next to the Expo-92 exhibition area, also not far from the city center. Buses come here from all over the country, as well as from the north and west of the province, from Huelva and Portugal.

Seville Transport

It is most convenient to move around the city center on foot, however, given that some of the venerable “must-sees” are relatively far away, for example, the same Expo-92 pavilions, public transport will still come in handy. It is best to buy a ticket for 1-2 days for the tourist bus Hop on – Hop off (24 hours – 22 EUR / 11 EUR children). But, as an option, you can get acquainted with the traditional ways of transportation for Sevillians – by bus or metro. The prices on the page are for August 2021.

Buses

The city bus network of Seville covers almost the entire city, the buses are very comfortable, the fare is relatively low. There are several lines by which you can get from one end of the city to the other, as well as 5 ring routes (C1 and C2 – the best and most “spectacular” for tourists, C3, C4 and C5). After midnight, buses run only on special night routes.

The fare is 0.7-1.5 EUR, depending on the number of stops, but it’s easier to buy a card for 2 EUR, which can be replenished at the terminals. If you need to use buses often, then it is more profitable to buy a Bonobus pass for 10 trips, they are sold only in tobacco and newsstands.

Underground

The metro in Seville is a newcomer, it was opened only in 2009, it is constantly being completed and lengthened. Today, the subway covers almost all areas of the city, opening around 6:30 and ending at 23:00 on weekdays and at 2:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. The fare depends on the number of transfers, minimum 1.17 EUR, day ticket 4.5 EUR.

Bicycle for rent

The local network of rent-a-bike Sevici outlets is spread throughout the city: you can find an iron friend quickly (almost 250 parking lots) and inexpensively. The cost is 1.05-2.05 EUR per hour (depending on the area) plus you will need to pay the so-called “membership” for a week for 12 EUR.

Rent a Car

It is worth thinking ten times before renting a car for trips specifically around Seville – poor traffic, few parking lots, a lot of one-way streets: the city was planned for horses and teams, not for large cars. However, if you want to drive around the Andalusian capital, as well as throughout the region, a car can be very useful. There are Avis and Hertz rental offices at the airport and railway station, but it’s best to book in advance.
