Seville’s pleasant year-round weather and friendly locals are why I continually return to the city with my family. Right now, my 2-year-old happily toddles around the cobblestoned streets and enjoys sampling Spanish tapas just as much as his parents do. The city’s restaurants are also especially welcoming to kids and babies—I’ve noticed that most waitstaff and dining locals don’t seem to blink an eye at meltdowns, or even at kids simply running around bars and restaurants day and night.
Whether it’s young kids playing in the city’s parks and squares or teens that can appreciate Seville’s culture and history alongside their parents, this Andalucian hub welcomes families of all shapes and sizes.
Seville can get extremely hot in summer. Make sure to book accommodations with air conditioning.
If you only have time for one thing, make it the Royal Alcázar. The whole family will love strolling through the picturesque gardens.
After you walk past historical sites like the bullring, head down to the riverside to stroll along the riverbanks, crossing the Isabel II bridge to have tapas in the local Triana neighborhood.
The whole family will enjoy the Royal Alcázar. From the palace’s winding interior complex to its picturesque gardens—featuring manicured greenery and a functioning water organ—there’s plenty to see and do here.
Locals are crazy about purebred Spanish horses. Head into the Andalucian countryside to visit stables and learn more about these majestic animals, complete with a horseback riding adventure.
Flamenco is another unique part of Andalucian culture. You can always enjoy an evening flamenco show, but some families might prefer a flamenco class taught by a local dancer, where everyone can learn to stomp, twirl, and clap like the pros. Alternatively, older kids might enjoy a night tour that captures the spooky side of Seville.
