Seville is the #1 city you should visit next year, according to Lonely Planet.

Seville, Spain took top honors in the travel site’s annual Best in Travel roundup, which names both cities and countries worth visiting in the coming year.

Taking the top spot overall, is Seville, Spain, which editors applaud for having transformed itself from a gridlocked metropolis to a dynamic city of bikes and trams. The year 2018 is also poised to be a big one for the Andalusian capital, as it will host the European Film Awards and take a star role in the cult fantasy series Game of Thrones.

Throughout 2018, Seville will continue to mark the 400th anniversary of Baroque painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo with a series of half a dozen art expositions.
