Home to Seville's very popular soccer club, Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium offers an exciting European fútbol experience. Since its opening in 1958, the stadium has hosted a handful of World Cup and European Cup tournaments. Soccer games at the stadium — which has the capacity to seat 45,500 people — are full of energy thanks to the enthusiasm of Seville's fans.

Ticket prices for games vary based on the opponent, the day of the week and the location of your seat. (Games against cross-city rivals Real Betis, and powerhouse fútbol clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona attract a lot of fans, so tickets will cost more.) You can purchase tickets online or at the stadium box office. But getting a good price won't be too stressful, as one TripAdvisor reviewer notes that the ticket sellers are very helpful when it comes to finding visitors the best affordable seats. Box office hours vary, so be sure to check the stadium's website for details. You'll find Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium less than 2 miles east of the city center; though the stadium can be reached on foot, your best bet is to ride the metro to the Nervión or Gran Plaza stations and walk from there. 

Even if the game schedule doesn't match up with your travel itinerary (fútbol season spans August through May), you can still visit the stadium for a chance to learn about its past. On a guided tour, you'll see the trophy room, the players' tunnel and several other notable spots. The club recommends that you email fundacion@sevillafc.es to set up a tour, which costs €12 EUR (about $16.50 USD) for adults.

#1 Real Alcázar

The Spanish monarchy doesn't quite boast the worldwide clout of the British monarchy, but royalty is royalty, right? Take the chance to step into sovereignty when you enter the Real Alcázar palace and gardens. The palace was built in the seventh century and it still occasionally hosts the royal family when they visit Seville. While the original structure dates back to the Middle Ages, the entire palace has been heavily influenced by different architectural and cultural styles, ranging from Gothic to Baroque. The intricate architectural design is known as mudéjar — a Muslim and Christian artistic fusion unique to Andalusia. Exlpore on your own or use an audio tour to guide you through the luxurious rooms of the palace like the Salón de Embajadores (Hall of Ambassadors) and the Patio de las Doncellas (Patio of the Maidens). But to gain access to the Cuarto Real Alto (the Upper Royal Quarters), you'll need to be on a guided tour.

Make sure to budget enough time to admire the details. One TripAdvisor reviewer suggests: "Be sure to look upwards when you walk through this grand residence of kings, because the workmanship of the carvings and painting on the ceilings is truly amazing." This UNESCO World Heritage site is surrounded by gardens that are also worth seeing.
