Possible Seville Itinerary with a Day Trip to Cordoba

This is our tentative itinerary for our stay in Seville. We will have two kids in tow (3 years old and 13 months old) in a double stroller, so things are subject to change. We have ideas about what we MUST see and what can be let go if necessary. Is there anything we're missing or even something we have on our schedule that you don't think is worth the time?

You've done your homework, so I wouldn't suggest anything different. Have a great trip!

Holy cow! And you have little children? What about when they get tired? need to be fed? need a diaper change? I think you have planned WAY TOO much. But, you are probably a very organised mother. Allow for some time to just “explore” and let it flow. Cordoba is fantastic, one of my favourite places. Yes, you can do all that you outlined, but two days would be more relaxed. You have to plan for a slower pace with little kids. The Mezquita is HUGE! I spent a couple of hours there, but little ones get bored quickly. The Roman bridge is right next to the Mezquita so it is a short walk, and not a life changing experience. Neat to see though. The Jewish quarter is right next to the Mezquita, and lots of streets that go all different ways, very easy to get lost in it. Lots of places to eat - I would avoid the places right next to and across the street from the Mezquita, expensive and not very good. I got lucky and had a fantastic meal at Fusion, and the restaurant next to it. Turns out the Chef was a semi finalist in a TV show about Top Tapas Chefs from Spain. The food was fantastic! Fusion by Sojo, Enrique Romero de Torres S/N 14003 Cordoba. The restaurants were in a plaza area - facing the Mezquita it would be to the right a few blocks.

Hope you and your family enjoy the trip!

I'm not sure you can plan on picnicing in the gardens at the Real Alcazar. I didn't see anyone taking food in - it might not be allowed.
