Hi,

You haven't said when you are going as Seville can be unbearably hot in summer. There are a few things I would recommend with children in tow apart from the cultural sights. The Plaza de España and the nearby Parque de María Luisa is a great place to run around, relax and find some shade. There are plenty of boat trips down the Río Guadalquivir river to pass a pleasant hour or so. A horse drawn carriage for the family round the main sights would be an exciting way to get round. There is a modern structure called the Espacio Metropol Parasol to climb around. It is in the Plaza de la Encarnación. A climb up La Giralda is always a good bet as the views from the top are fantastic. I love the Royal Alcázar of Seville. The tile mosaics are beautiful and will be appreciated by everyone I am sure and there are some nice gardens to wander around. Isla Mágica is on the outskirts and although I haven't been it is a fun park. Outside Seville are the Roman ruins of. The whole of the old Jewish quarter , the Barrio Santa Cruz is great to wander around and savour the atmosphere although it is a little touristy. Finally the Plaza de Toros de Sevilla is always fascinating for children.

When we went to Seville, my daughters were 5, 7, 8, and 14, but it was our first trip, so we wanted to see everything and they liked all the historical stuff not just because it was interesting and beautiful, but because it was all spacious and gave them enough room to explore.

The old city center is where Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures come together historically and it's just a beautiful area to explore. Go see the Seville Cathedral. Christopher Columbus is buried here and the kids will enjoy the tower that has a ramp to the top instead of stairs so that they could ride horses up.

Just across the street is the Royal Alcázar of Seville, the old Moorish palace with gorgeous gardens and places to explore. It isn't boring and constricting. Kids can move about and it's an incredible place to take some nice family pictures.

In this area, you'll also find the Barrio Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter with narrow streets of whitewashed buildings. Explore this area for  cute shops and delicious tapas restaurants.

You can also walk from here to the Plaza de España which is also beautiful, immense, and a place where kids can run around a bit.

You'll be able so see and explore all of the above in one really full day or up to two days if you are leisurely about it.

If your kids want some fun, take them to the Isla Mágica, an amusement park for kids near the Isla de la Cartuja, a beautiful garden area surrounding a monastery.

If you love art, go to the Seville Museum of Fine Arts - It truly is amazing.

You could easily walk along the river and see the Plaza De Toros De La Maestranza as well. I wouldn't recommend a bullfight for children, but if they have a Campeonato de Recortadores (This is a sport of jumping over the bulls. There's no fighting.), then that could be fun. http://10000windows.com/campeonato-de-recortadores/


Oh... and go on a scavenger hunt as you tour the city and look for NO8DO. It's the motto of Seville and is written randomly throughout the city.
