For some reason the Italica is not well advertised to tourists. It is an amazing sight to see and reminded us of a mini version of Pompeii and the colosseum in Rome. It's about 10km from Sevilla. If you have a car, you can drive or you can take a public bus. We opted for an electric bike tour with... More

Had a great time immersing myself, walking through 2000 year old history. This is a great family place and a place really to just understand how life once was. When you get there they give you a Pam-let that's in English to help you on a self guided tour and everything else like the description/information boards are in Spanish. I... More

We have seen many great roman and earlier periods excavations and restaurations in past years. Italica deserves more attention. The mosaics are outstanding and exciting.

A great short trip from Seville. Catch the bus from Plaza de Armas to Santiponce, the town where Italica is located. Italica is the last stop. The trip costs 1.55? each way and you pay on the bus. Take your EU passport and entrance to Italics is free. A large and impressive site, you can learn about the Roman way... More

We drove here to visit Italica. First parked in Santiponce village in a small parking area on the left side after you have past the main site on your righthand side. We walked a few minutes uphill from the parking behind the restaurant with the hunting theme, to view the theatre from above. Next we drove back to the main... More

If you don't have a car, it's an easy bus ride from Sevilla. A fascinating place with a spectacular location and view.

This was my first exposure to Roman ruins and I was very impressed. The site is quite large and includes many foundations with mosaic floors and an impressive ruin of the amphitheater. We took a city bus from the Plaza de Armas bus station and it stopped right in front of the entrance to the site. Unless there are groups... More

We caught the city bus to go to Itálica. It took about 30 minutes to get there. We spent two hours there. A Roman city without having to go to Italy. We enjoyed it!

If you like the Roman history you need to visit the ruins of Italica. Is one of the best settlements preserved in Spain and you will enjoy it "cause is not really crowed. The best of the place are the amphitheatre and the mosaics on the ground of some of the villas. Unfortunately the site is not completely excaved and... More

These Roman ruins are in a hilly setting replete with trees and other green vegetation, which makes a picturesque backdrop. There are several interesting floor mosaics in good condition to view. The amphitheatre is said to be the third largest surviving in the world. It is large and impressive. If you visit Sevilla this is a 'must see' attraction. Our... More
