NIGHTLIFE IN SEVILLA
Sevilla is great for going out due to the huge variety of venues in a small area. You can easily visit four or five completely different bars without walking more than ten minutes between any of them.
The inhabitants of Seville know how to enjoy their free time and it is said that they “live in the street” and at night the streets and bars are full of locals and tourists.
Nightlife in The Barrio de Santa Cruz
Many of the locals in this traditional part of town close already around midnight, but until then you may have loads of fun. You will find here many typical bars offering delicious “Tapas” and regional wines. It’s recommended for the first drink of the night.
Nightlife in The Center
Specially around Iglesia del Salvador and in the area of Alfalfa you will find crowded locals and large groups of youngsters using streets and squares as an extension of their favourite bar.
Also you’ll find here a wide range of bars and discotheques with a lot of night-time activity.
Nightlife in the Park of Maria Luisa
Here you will find nice summer terraces, many of them in the old pavilions of the Exposition of 1929, close to the Theater Lope de Vega. Many locals play dance music, and the party takes until the early morning.
Nightlife Along the River
During the summer, because of the heat, the most enjoyable spots are the numerous open-air bars set up along both sides of the river.
Public transportation system
Sevilla has a great public transportation system. The buses run frequently and cover the majority of the city in their routes.
You can purchase bus cards at any news stand. Green = 5 euro for 10 trips and red = 8 euro for 10 trips and transfers are allowed.
Sevici bikes are available throughout the city with special docking stations that allow you to easily grab a bike and go whereever you need, then drop it off at another station when you arrive.
Bikes cost 5 euro for a week pass, which allows the first 1/2 hour free and subsequent hours are a euro each.
Also, year passes can be purchased for 10 euro with each half hour free and additional hours 50 euro cents.
A trolley system is currently being incorporated into Sevilla’s local transportation and is running from the San Sabastian Bus Station to the Plaza de Nueva but is expanding North and West into Triana.
Taxi’s easily accessable throughout the city. Many offer decent rates, but tourists beware of the possibility of a crooked cabie.
Sevilla By Metro
Seville’s spanking new metro opened on the April 1st 2009. It follows a 18 kilometre reverse U from the south-west to the south-east through the southern end of the city centre where it stops at Plaza de Cuna, Prado and San Bernado.
Tickets are €1.75 for a single zone or €4.50 for all 3 zones., and metro runs from 6.30AM-11PM on weekdays, and late departures are available on Fridays and Saturdays until 2 o’clock.
