When you step off the plane or train to start your new life in Seville, most likely, you will feel a mixture of excitement and nervousness. You are, after all, embarking on a new life in a new city. You may never have been to the Andalusian capital before and only be equipped with a few words of Spanish, so you might feel like a fish out of water for a while. However, this feeling shouldn't last too long. Although your new home city has a different feel and character from the one you left behind, much will be familiar.

From tapas culture and taking a siesta to late-night dinners and days-long fiestas, Seville is home to a raft of fascinating and quirky traditions. If you are going to live and work in the capital of Andalusia and want to jump right into the culture, here are a few tips on how to do it well.

In addition to the sunshine, slow-pace of life, and all the other benefits of living in a culturally rich Mediterranean city, Seville is also a place bursting with job opportunities. As the location of the country's only inland port, it is an important trade hub for southern Spain as well as being the home of prestigious technological parks.

With late breakfasts and long lunches, Seville's work environment will most likely be very different from what you are used to. Spain may well be the land of siestas and fiestas, but don't be fooled, it also prides itself on a diligent and productive work environment.

Once you have decided to make the beautiful city of Seville your home, the next order of business is finding a place to live, in the right neighbourhood for you. The Andalusian capital has 11 districts which encompass more than 100 barrios or neighbourhoods. Expats live all over the city, and there is no one best neighbourhood.
