Enjoy a complete day at leisure. There is so much to see and do in Seville. Consider one of the following:

• Cooking Class - Sevilla

It is a different experience where the participants learn to prepare a multiple-course meal and then partake in the sampling of the prepared dishes while enjoying the olive oils and wines of the region! -Duration 3-5 hours. $248 per person.

• Game of Thrones Sevilla Tour
—  A detailed visit to the locations selected by HBO MAX for its acclaimed series Game of Thrones in Seville. It Includes a Private visit to the Alcazar of Seville (Kingdom of Dorne) and Italica (dragon pit), so breathtaking that they barely needed any CGI. Sometimes the real world doesn't live up to the fictional world that TV and movie sets create. That's not the case though for the set of Dorne, one of the fictional settings on "Game of Thrones. " Producers had to add very little turn it into Dorne. And the a private car ride to Italica, the First Roman city in Hispania, a city that gave birth to two Roman Emperors: Hadrian and Trajan. Well HBO used the ruins left to recreate the Dragonpit. Visit it and feel the History behind it's walls, where actual gladiators fought and gave their lives to entertain. And also a glimpse of how wealthy romans lived back in those days. So let me take you through a journey that mixes Real and Fictional worlds together. -Duration 3.5 Hours. $290 per person (2 guest minimum)

• Day Trip to Ronda and the White Villages
—  This is one of those places where images cannot capture the beauty of this place. Ronda and the white villages are located inside the Grazalema mountain range. For decades a place with difficult access, but now its slowly growing, slowly. Life here happens really slow, but people really enjoy their secluded air. Hub to lots of open air activities, grazalema and Zahara de la sierra offer that quietness that is always welcomed . And Ronda, a city that echoes History and gallantry, protected by a breathtaking gorge from one side, and surrounded by roman, then muslim walls, home to the Bullfight as we know it. the Place where Orson Wells himself chose to be buried. A place where it was common to see Ernest Hemingway having a drink after the bullfight. I'll take to the best viewpoints in all this places, we'll stop for the best food in town.
