Best city breaks in June
See these fascinating cities around the world at their best this summer…
Average temperature: 31°C
Celebrate the beginning of summer and enjoy idyllic holidays in June in this spirited Andalucian town – breathing a sigh of relief that neither the seriously sticky temperatures nor the peak-season crowds have arrived yet. After the festival period of March to May (including the religious spectacle of Semana Santa, which also makes Seville a great place to visit in March) accommodation prices take a welcome drop, meaning you might just bag yourself a bargain. Packed with both grand Moorish and Catholic relics and a lively after-dark ambience, Seville’s charismatic blend of the ancient and the modern is perfect for long sightseeing days in the sunshine and even longer nights by the bar. Try a glass of Rioja and some generous plates of tapas at El Rinconcillo, just off Plaza Ponce de León. Want more tips on the best tapas in Seville? Check out our foodie guide for those on a budget.
Where to stay in Seville
Save your soles and bed down for a few nights somewhere central, like Hotel Rey Alfonso X, just steps away from main attractions like Seville Cathedral and the Alcazar. If the Spanish sun’s got you craving a hotel with a pool, try Vértice Sevilla in the business district. It’s more functional than fancy, but there’s also a gym, saunas and library for £47* a night, so it’s a bit of a steal.
Best time to book flights to Seville: 21 weeks before departure, saving 20% on average flight prices from the UK to Seville.
