- Skip the line
- Duration: 3 hours
Start from a nineteenth century house, which can be viewed as operating from the typical Sevillian patio. From there, prepare to see the most historic and monumental parts of Seville from Plaza del Salvador, Plaza de San Francisco and Plaza Nueva, located near the City Hall, then head towards Avienda de la Constitución located at the Cathedral, the Giralda. Discover the old tobacco factory, Prado de San Sebastián, Plaza de España and Maria Luisa Park, New York dock, Real Maestranza and Torre del Oro; its origins, trivia and history. Finish the route with the well–known Mushrooms of the Plaza de la Encarnación, and contrast historic Seville with the most avant-garde.
Seville has been one of the most important cities in Spain since ancient times; the first settlers of the site have been identified with the Tartessian culture. The destruction of their settlement is attributed to the Carthaginians, giving way to the emergence of the Roman city of Hispalis, built very near the Roman colony of Itálica. At the time of the Almoravids, Seville was the best walled city in Europe. Following the riots of 1868 the revolutionaries toppled many of those walls, leaving sections of Macarena, Puerta de Córdoba and Alcázar. On this route, discover the doors of Seville, where carriages were stopped, mysteries unravelled, stories unfolded; and take a cycling tour of the historic area, seeing the defensive route of the old Seville. Puerta Carmona, Puerta Osario, Puerta Triana - see them all, stopping at each one.
Gabriele è stata una guida fantastica: ci ha fatto vedere Siviglia attraverso gli occhi di qualcuno che la conosce e la vuole raccontare: si è dimostrato sempre disponibile e preparato ed ha indirizzato tutte le nostre domande. Bella anche l'idea del giro in bici. Esperienza assolutamente positiva

My husband and I on a visit to Seville had not thought about doing this experience but we decided at the last moment and I am happy to have done it. Gabriele the Italian boy who guided us was very prepared, not only that, he showed his enthusiasm in telling us the story, the monuments. He had an excellent knowledge of the city of Seville and in addition he made connections with the stories of other countries. When we asked for curiosity he always answered abundantly.
Very nice stroll in the city, because in Seville, everything is designed for cycling without any danger. The meeting point is a bit difficult to find, as it is a very small street. Our guide, Cristina, was great !!
