Whether you choose to use the public transport network of buses, metro and trams or perhaps you may hire a bicycle, Seville has invested a great deal of time and effort to ensure that tourists find it easy to make their way from one attraction to another.
There are also a number of official tours that make sightseeing easy. Hop on hop off buses allow you to stop and have a good look around any number of locations but taking a horse-drawn carriage around the older areas will provide you with an exceptional memory as something that little bit different. If you want to find out more you should visit the local tourist information centre that will be able to advise exactly where you can join or make the most of the different options available.
