For this blog, we’re going to look in depth at #WorldTourismDay2020 during COVID-19 and how businesses and workplaces have adapted before looking at new ways to enjoy tourism in a safe way during your time in Seville!

The 27thSeptember marks #WorldTourismDay2020 and this year, the internationally recognised day could be the most important since its inception in 1980 as the global pandemic has detrimentally affected international tourism worldwide. 

The theme for #WorldTourismDay2020 is “Tourism and Rural Development” and aims at celebrating the important role tourism plays in providing jobs and opportunity for many, not only in rural areas but big cities alike.

Safer ways to enjoy tourism in Seville

There is no doubt that travelling has changed as a consequence of the global pandemic but it’s not all doom and gloom!

As you know tourism is one of the main economic sectors for this city and we want to support them giving you some tips to enjoy Sevilla in Covid-19 times.

There are still numerous ways to learn what Seville has to offer while adhering to social distancing regulations!

Taking advantage of Seville’s network of cycle lanes on a kickscooter or bicycle will let you have endless amounts of fun and experience all of what Seville has to offer.

All while socially distancing and staying safe. A memorable guided tour of the city on two wheels allows for seeing five times more than a traditional tour, all while getting some good exercise in! What’s not to love?

Tourism in Parks

If you’re not a big fan of getting about on two wheels, don’t worry!

There is plenty of ways to explore Seville on foot (socially distanced of course). You could go on a monumental walking tour of Seville and experience a mix of resplendent Mudejar palaces and winding medieval lanes.

Alternatively, you could even go on a private kayaking tour and admire the main attractions of Seville from the river. Not only will you gain a different viewpoint of the city, but also a good work out too!
