Whether you are trying to dash from one side of the city to the other in record time or prefer to take in the sites from within the romantic comfort of a horse-drawn carriage, Sevilla is an easy city to get around in.
Any visitor to Sevilla will notice the fleet of red TUSSAM buses constantly passing through the streets. Tons of buses, numerous routes and services including all-night nocturnal routes together compose a fantastic publictransportation system which will get you from anywhere and to anywhere you desire.
If you want to see the sights but there just does not seem to be enough hours in the day, consider boarding one of the two-story hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses. Tour passes are easy to find and are valid for 24 hours, so you can hop on and hop off all day seeing what you want to see as you cruise through Sevilla.
If you want to experience Spain’s most romantic city accompanied by the quaint clip-clop of horse hooves, a classic suggestion is to climb into a traditional horse carriage for a relaxing tour of Sevilla. The horse carriages convene at various hard-to-miss sites throughout the city and the guided tour usually lasts about an hour.
Taxis can be found at designated stands in all the main plazas, or can be hailed on the street if showing a green light, which means they are available. Avoid driving in Seville as roads are confusing and hard to negotiate.
Seville’s new metro opened on the April the 2nd 2009. It follows a 18km reverse U from the south-west to the south-east through the southern end of the city centre where it stops at Plaza de Cuba, Prado de San Sebastian and San Bernardo. The metro runs from 6.30AM-11PM on weekdays, and late departures are available on Fridays and Saturdays until 2 o’clock.
Bikes and scooters
Sevice bikes are available throughout the city with special docking stations that allow you to easily grab a bike and go wherever you need, then drop it off at another station when you arrive. Scooters are available for rent for €30 for the day and €120 for the week. These are a cost efficient way of getting around and a drivers license is not necessary.
