Seville, Tourism Innovation World Capital
TIS chooses Seville as a leading ecosystem to revolutionize the tourism sector
Seville is famous worldwide for its culture, monuments, traditions and artistic heritage. But it is also the neuralgic center of the south of Spain, with great connections by plane and train. Seville is a very attractive city for any visitor traveling for business or leisure thanks to endless possibilities and offers.
Seville will become the world hub on Tourism Innovation by congregating during three days top leaders, the most disrupting solutions and the discussion about the future and challenges of this industry. An ecosystem is emerging due to its strategic vision to connect tradition with the most cutting edge technology and advances for the tourism sector.
THE ROYAL ALCAZAR THE PALACE OF THE KINGS
Everyone who has been here will be able to confirm it: the Royal Alcázar of Seville transports you to different eras, an experience you will never forget. You will without doubt get to know one of the most spectacular monumental complexes in the world.
The Royal Alcazar has been the place chosen by different civilisations, cultures, and dynasties as a centre of power: from the Almohads to the Christian kings, they have left their legacy here for history. A fantastic example is in the wonderful Mudejar Palace built by Pedro I.
UNDISCOVERED SETTINGS IN SEVILLE
There are photogenic cities, others which look like perfect postcards and there are cities which are made to be filming locations. Seville has the capacity of reinventing itself continuously and, even though cinema has already used many locations of the city, there are still many unique places that the world has not discovered yet. Discover them yourself!
SEVILLE IS BIKE-FRIENDLY
Seville has understood that cities have to be ever more human. In just a few years, the city has evolved to a model of mobility where the bike is the main protagonist.
Seville has always been an easy, flat, sunny city … and this had to be taken advantage of, including for those on two wheels. That’s why the city built many kilometres of cycle paths throughout Seville, and a public bicycle rental service called Sevici was launched. The result of all this is now at your disposal. If you come to Seville you will be able to enjoy 170 kilometres of cycle paths and 250 Sevici stations, open 24 hours a day. This is the life!
SEVILLE, THE WORLD CAPITAL OF TAPAS
What is tapas really? Tapas is the heart of our gastronomic culture: small plates of homemade and traditional specialties, and surprising creations of chefs; brushstrokes of intense flavours, suggestive products of the highest quality … A way of eating that fits a way of life. Live the food, eat the life.
And what does it mean to go to “eat tapas”? Try it for yourself: walk among monuments, stop at a bar and ask for tapas, continue to discover the city, try a second dish of tapas in another bar, and so on … and so deliciously.
