How to get there
Seville has excellent road and rail communications for quick and convenient access to the city by whichever means of transport you choose.
Another good way to get to Seville is by road –there is a good road network with several motorways (toll and free). The most important are the A-4, which connects Andalusia and Madrid, and the A-66 which goes to Mérida and connects with the A-5, which also goes on to Madrid. Granada and the Costa del Sol are linked with Seville by the A-92 motorway. Travel to Portugal is on the A-49 motorway. Finally, Seville and Cadiz are linked by both the A-4 and the E-5 roads. All access to motorways and main roads is from the SE-30 ring road around Seville, with numerous points of access into the city centre.
The airport is ten kilometres north of the city, close to the A-4 motorway. Its facilities were designed by the prestigious Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Almost five million passengers currently use this airport each year, mainly arriving from other Spanish cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia, but also connecting to European cities such as London, Paris, Rome, Milan, etc. When it comes to travel between the airport and the city centre, you can either take a taxi or use the special bus service that terminates at Prado de San Sebastián, in the centre of the city, costing €4.
