Board your City Sightseeing open-top bus from any of the nine routed stops that are situated throughout the city. (See the Itinerary for a list of the stops.) Find a spot inside or on the top deck, then sit back and relax as you travel through this historical city that is renowned for its sherry, celebrated as the birthplace of flamenco, and considered the capital of Andaluz equestrian culture.
With your 24-hour ticket, you can remain on the bus for the entire loop or you can hop on and off at any of the stops to explore the city’s must-see sights. As you travel, listen to the audio commentary to learn more about Jerez de la Frontera and the gorgeous, sunbaked region of Andalucia.
Perhaps hop off at the iconic Alcázar, an 11th or 12th century Moorish fortress that is recognized as one of the best preserved Almohad-era relics in Andalucia. Marvel at its impressive octagonal tower and wander through the pretty gardens, pausing at the star-shaped fountain for photos. Seek shade in the cloistered patios, then explore the mosque and ancient Arab Baths. Make your way to the top of one of the towers for 360-degree views of the city projected through the lenses and mirrors of a camera obscura.
Later, maybe stop by the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. Wander around the sun-dappled grounds, set around a palace that was designed by Charles Garnier, and watch the school’s horses being exercised. Then, head inside to explore the two museums, one dedicated to carriages and the other to equestrian arts, where you can learn more about this traditional Spanish riding discipline.
Round off a day with a visit to one of the bodegas. Here, discover the art of sherry making, then perhaps enjoy a tasting of sherry and other regional wines.
The full loop lasts around 45 minutes, and buses arrive every 30 minutes at each stop.
