|Subject: Re: Seville Spain help needed|
I was in Seville last October. It was warm and lovely. You can take a look at my photo travelogue http://www.geocities.com/nataliemuldaur/Spain/spain36.html (It actually starts before that, but this is where the Seville part starts.)
There is a major train station in Seville. If you wanted to, you could take the high-speed AVE train to Cordoba for the day to see the Mosque there. It's really amazing, and you'll get there in less than an hour.
If you planning on renting a car, I recommend going to Arcos de la Frontera for the day. It's one of the largest Pueblos Blancos, but it will give you a flavor of that sort of town (as opposed to a big city like Seville.) You could also go to Jerez and tour sherry (factories, wineries? Well, where they make the sherry!) If you are in to horses, they also have the famous white andalusian horses there, and I understand you can make reservations to see a show or to watch them practice.
Seville is fantastic for tapas so have fun eating them! You definitely should see the Cathedral, the Alcazar and the bullring. We wandered around a lot and just took in the atmosphere. The one thing I really remember about Seville is the smell...it smelled like orange blossoms! This is a touristy recommendation (but you are a tourist) but I recommend the flamenco show at Los Gallos. It was fantastic. I thought it was going to be very touristy, but it seemed pretty authentic to me (maybe the touristy part was the price of the drinks!) We were really impressed with the passion and talent of these dancers and musicians. It was very memorable.
If you have any specific questions, just let me know and I'll see if I can help. I was only there for 3 days (in Seville) but it was fantastic!
