... but either way he had strong connections to Italica. In addition to building that huge wall in England, building the Temple of Venus and Roma, rebuilding the Pantheon, commissioning the Masuoleum of Hadrian (otherwise known as Castel Sant'Angelo - a one-time fortress of the Pope) among other pet projects, he also oversaw the expansion (3+ fold) of Italica. This included many temples, baths, residences, etc and a 25,000 seat Amphitheatre ...
... a decision and look petrified. Most of the time it is the wife leading and the husband just follows, having absolutely no input, for fear of getting a tongue lashing - they keep quiet and just carry the shopping bags. I've seen this look many times on Jeff from years of receiving the sink eye from me for giving his opinion. Then he gets balled out for not speaking up, poor thing!

We decided to drive through the interior of Spain to see some of the white hill towns. We ended up stopping in Medina –Sidonia, a cute little, very untouristy, town, for some drinks and food. It had your typical town square, and narrow streets, but gorgeous views. After having some snacks, we drove to the more famous Arcos de la Frontara. We stopped in the old town and parked, as ...
Well, after waking up early, picking out the ever so important first day of school outfit, I headed out on my own for my first day at the Universidad Pablo de Olavide. I started my day at 9am with a Translation class. First thing we do? Prueba! Not fun. After translation, I tried to get my way into a Spanish language Spanish Civilization and Culture class, but failed to even make the waiting list, as I was among the last of 16 other students trying to get in. ...
... in search of infinite sunshine. Honestly, free walking tours are really the best way to see a city because you learn so much extra that you wouldn't read in your everyday guidebook. She guided us for 4km past historic buildings and told old stories and spilled the latest Spanish gossip. We learned that across the river in Seville lies a district called Triana, and this is where Flamenco was born. It is a cultural mix of Spanish, Moorish ...

A very good hotel
Had a very nice stay at this hotel. 10 minutes by bus to centre of city - E1 for the ticket. Super breakfast, good room. Did not use gym or pool as we were only there for 2 nights and out a lot. Room had a safe - read a review that said there was no room safe but we had one and found it useful. Also well stocked min bar. Helpful and friendly staff. Would definitely use again.

just back from a stay in this hotel which I would recommend very highly. The staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke good english. The breakfast buffet was excellant. We were driving and the information given in the hotel description stated that there was ample parking payable directly to the hotel. This was not the case and we were directed to the public parking next door which was payable at an hourly rate with a maximum of 14 euros a day. There is off road paking in the street if you can find a space which is free but not secure. We pointed this out at reception and our information was photocopied to be shown to the manager and we were assured this would be changed as it is misleading and not accurate. The hotel is not central and whilst it is possible to walk, the local bus service is very frequentand will take you straight to the centre. We would definately stay here again.
Hello, everyone I am from queens, ny on July 31, 2004, me and my boyfriend
Stayed here in August 2003. What a great hotel. Stay in many 5 * hotels through work but this beats them hands-down. Staff were attentive without being intrusive, great on-site bar and restaurant and a fabulous pool and sun deck. Hotel was spotless and we had a great room overlooking the pool area. Seville is a beautiful city and this hotel was the icing on the cake...
Hopefully I will return to Seville and look forward to staying here again
Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Not in the center of the attractions but it's a small town and an easy and staff walk. Beds weren't too great. Modern and clean - close to a shopping center and restaurants if you don't want to go too far for food. Enjoyed the experience!
Off the Beaten Track, but a great spot!
Hotel was beautiful and clean and staff was very friendly and spoke English very well. Close to the airport and only a 15 minute bus ride from the major attractions. And across the street from the Santa Justa station. Highly recommend it!
Not for me
Having just come back from the Occidental, I would recommend for you to stay elsewhere. While not expensice (about 100 Euro), this feels like a standard Holiday Inn. Although clean, the decor is functional and not very inviting. No room safe and mediocre service. The location is pretty good but if you go make sure your room as far as possible away from the function rooms since the current Christmas party made my nights less than enjoyable.
