HOW TO GET AROUND?
Being the main city of Andalusia, Seville is very well communicated by bus, train and road. It may be a good idea to rent a car to move around the city more freely and visit places that can not be accessed otherwise or at least not so easily. You can book a car from Unocar and pick it up at the train station, the airport or at some other different locations in the city.
