Food & Drink
As youd expect from a cosmopolitan city, Seville offers all kinds of dining experiences from fast food to gourmet cuisine. Still, no visit to the city is complete without alfresco dining, Spanish style. Order tapas and seafood, relax and people watch. As for drinks, the local sherry and freshly squeezed orange juice are both famously good.
