Located north-east of the city, Seville airport is Spain's sixth busiest airport, serving the western Andalusia region.
Santa Justa is the main train station in Seville. You can easily get there via high-speed trains from Cordoba, Madrid, Zaragoza and Barcelona on the southwest-northeast line or from Malaga on AVANT trains. Before boarding your train, make sure you get acquainted with the COVID measures in place.
From the train station, you can directly hop on to bus lines 36 and C2 to start exploring the city. Buy your tickets online through the National Spanish Railways (Renfe) website.
If you’re on a budget and have a bit more time on your hands, travelling to Seville by coach can be an excellent option. While travel times can be long, it’s still a comfortable way of getting around. A 15-minute walk from one of Seville’s two main bus stations (Plaza de Armas and Prado de San Sebastian) will get you to the historical centre. It’s best to check where you’ll be arriving to plan your onward travel.
If you’re planning to travel from abroad, keep in mind schedules may be impacted heavily by the current international travel restrictions.
You will find tolls on roughly 20% of motorways in Spain. You can avoid toll roads by choosing slower routes to get to Seville.
If you’re renting a car outside of Spain, we recommend you double check with the agency if your contract allows you to drive across borders.
Please bear in mind that there will be matchday traffic restrictions at the stadium, so driving the car might not be the most convenient or economic option.
Let me give you a top tip

Transport from the airport
The EA bus line will take you directly from the airport to the city centre. This will be your cheapest option to get downtown, as a one-way ticket costs as little as €4 for the 35-minute ride and €6 if you go for a round-trip ticket. When heading back to the airport, you will need to go to the Plaza de Armas to get back on the EA bus line. For more information, visit the Seville urban transport official website.
There are various taxi companies that operate from the airport to downtown Seville and vice versa. You can find the taxi rank directly opposite the main terminal. The flat fare ranges from €20 to €31 depending on the time of day, with the trip being approximately 15 minutes. Private hire services are also available at Seville airport.
Major rental car companies have their offices on the ground floor in the main terminal. Keep in mind that there will be road closures around the stadium and possibly across the city, and parking options are limited. It's best to stick to public transport.
