Road trip to Seville
Taking the slower route and enjoying the views of southern Spain
The Griswolds (the hilarious family in the National Lampoon’s movies) were on to something.
Ever since my storybook adventure through France this past summer, I am convinced that the best ways to enjoy the views and get knee-deep in the culture of Europe are to take a river cruise like the one I did with Uniworld, or to drive.
Road-tripping is exactly what I did from Madrid to Seville earlier this year when I traveled with Insight Vacations on a luxury tour through southern Spain. By train, this trip is a short 2.5-hour trip. But if you drive or take a bus tour, you can take your time. Along the way, you’ll find many spots with tons of history and beautiful architecture, making the trip worth every second.
Here are some of the highlights of what I discovered during my road trip.
Find El Quijote between Madrid and Sevilla
Visit the mosque
Have hot chocolate in Seville
A gift from the Moors
The Cathedral of Seville
The Jardines del Prado de San Sebastian
Universidad de Sevilla
Sunsets are the best
Reserve a night for Flamenco
