More About the Author

I'm a travel writer, photographer and broadcaster based in Brighton, UK. Over the past decade or so, my travel writing and photographs have appeared in most of the UK's national newspapers and specialist travel magazines. I also recently spent a summer wearing covert camera gear as an undercover reporter for ITV's Holidays Undercover.

My obsession with Andalucia began with a weekend break to Seville in 2000 and I've been going back for more ever since. (Maybe it's the wine?) I've just fully updated my Frommer's Day By Day Guide to Seville which is the number 1 selling guide to the city on Amazon.co.uk. I have also taken over authorship of the Frommer's Complete Guide to Seville, Granada and the Best of Andalusia. The brand new 4th edition is now on sale.

‘ We can confidently recommend this book to anyone planning to visit Seville.’ (Beyond London.com, July 2011). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

So many guidebooks to Seville... so why buy this one?

Well, firstly the Frommer's Day By Day format is unique and in my opinion very smart. Instead of chopping a destination up into areas, as is the case with most guidebooks, Day By Days use guided walking tours - The best in a day, The best in two days, The best in three days, Neighbourhoods and Special themes. There are also detailed listings sections - shops, hotels, restaurants and nightlife - but it's the tours that make the book. No more flicking between chapters to make sure you don't miss anything or fumbling for maps - the information is already organised for you complete with maps and detailed descriptions. It's intuitive and easy to use - so you make the most of your time. Just follow the points on the tours of you choice. Perfect if you only have a few days in which to see the city.

Secondly, I've researched it into the ground... This is a brand new book written (and photographed) from spending months in Seville walking and cycling the city. 40,000 words, 30 odd maps and several hundred images... it's not just full of info I've discovered, it's also full of stuff that people who live there told me. Most of them have become good friends in the process.

I hope it makes your trip to one of Europe's most romantic cities just that bit more delightful.

As a professional travel journalist, I use guidebooks all the time, and this one is one of the best I've seen in ages. It has everything you need to know for a long weekend (or longer) in Seville. The map is excellent, and layout of the book is innovative and useful, but the best bit is that the author's voice comes through (I like this, don't like that, but you might, etc). After all, the author IS the expert, but so many guidebook publishers insist the author remain completely neutral and just present dry facts. Well done Frommers for encouraging their authors to tell it like it is (or at least like they experience it).

I had access to many other guidebooks for this trip (Eyewitness Seville, Rough Guides Andalucia, etc), and this one was the only one I used.

3.0 out of 5 stars adequate 16 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This small guide was useful for a short 4 days break.
If one was going for longer and wanted more in-depth information, this guide would not be sufficient.
Maps are not very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't go without it! 21 Oct 2010
By Rob
Format:Paperback
As a first time and non-Spanish speaking solo visitor to Seville, I found this handy-sized guide invaluable. The themed walks provide enough guidance to start exploring but aren't so rigid you can't wander off when you spot soemthing. Best of all, the eating out tips were spot on accurate: I found great tasting, great value food and drink with ease.

Going to Seville for the first time for a few days, and in need of a good guide for looking, doing, eating etc.
Good layout, good enough map for walking about and useful info on transport and annual events.
Good price, pocketable size and well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job and more. 14 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for a long week-end. It's cheap and practical. Gives all the essentials in a nicely descriptive way and also plenty of tips on restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. In the absence of a Top 10 Seville Guide from DK, this is the best alternative.

I live in Seville and this is the guide book I lend to people when they come to stay. It's up-to-date, easy to use and the best thing is it's pocket-sized. Perfect for a short visit to the city.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide book to Seville 30 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent guide book to Seville, with the pull-out map being really useful too. Interesting themed tours as well as well-written summaries about Seville's key sites and architectural highlights made the book indispensible during a recent weekend visit to the city. I would definately recommend this book to anyone planning a visit to Seville.
