LateRooms.com - Vuelta a Espana to include Seville stage

July 31, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com can announce that seville will be included on the Vuelta a España for the first time in 15 years, which is sure to have cycling enthusiasts excited about trips to the Andalusian city.

The sporting event will be kicking off in the southern Spanish location, so travellers may even catch sight of some of its stars staying in the fine accommodation Seville has to offer.

It is the 75th year that the Vuelta a España has been running and the organisers explained that the stages have been made shorter since it first started, so that it is more entertaining for spectators.

Cyclists will start from La Maestranza Bullring in Seville on August 28th, with a night-time time-trial set up to kick things off.

"The 75th Anniversary Edition of La Vuelta a España will be reminding us of our past, will be showing us a course heretofore unseen for the most part and will be giving rise to … wonderful days of racing," explained officials.

They were full of praise for Seville, pointing out that visitors can check out a whole host of beautiful landmarks in the city, such as the Parque Maria Luisa, the Jewish Quarter and the Real Alcazar.

While visitors can enjoy cheering the athletes on as they battle the heat and the roads, the cyclists have a real task ahead of them, since the Vuelta a España is a 21-stage tour.
