Seville has the biggest historic centre of Spain and the third of all Europe, but it´s a flat city with a lot of pedestrian streets so it´s easy to get to know it on foot.
However, if we are tired or we want to go somewhere outside the city center, we can take the public transport, so in this paper we give you information about how to move throughout Seville using its wide variety, like bus, taxi, horse cart or bike.
