Seville – Arrive in Seville for an Evening of Tapas and Flamenco
The Andalusian city of Seville casts a captivating spell with cobblestone lanes that are nestled between the old whitewashed homes as pedestrian-friendly promenades are shaded by towering palm trees. Antique street lamps continue to line the street amidst the clopping sound of horse drawn carriages around the central plaza. The Moorish past emanates from the remnants of a once great mosque as blossoming orange trees fill the air with a refreshing zesty citrus. Your flight will land at Seville Airport, where your private transfer will greet you upon arrival to make your way to the comforts of your luxurious hotel. You can take some time to enjoy the view and settle into the beauty of the city before partaking in a flamenco show in the evening.
Flamenco embodies the history and the passion of Seville wrapped in the combination of movement and music. The guitarist will strum and fill the renovated gallery with song. The traditional architecture of the building provides a perfect ambiance in which to view the performance, and the sweet, fruity flavor of your sangria layers the evening with perfect tastes. The dancer lifts her traditional ruffled skirt to show her feet as she stomps on the wooden stage. The sound will reverberate through the room, and then the elegant steps will heighten, alternating between taps and stamps, while a percussionist will clap his hands to the beat of the dancer, accompanied by the stimulating speed of the guitarist.
