Good place to visit if you are interested in history. the ensemble it is situated in Santiponce at 7 km from Seville. Do not visit it in the summer! It is very hot and you will melt between the rocks.

There is so much to see at Italica! So much of the city has been uncovered that you can just imagine you are walking through Italica in its hay day. The mosaics are beautiful and give such insight into how home were decorated. The coliseum is large and in great condition so we were able to walk all around the... More

Our friends who live in Sevilla took us here during our summer trip. Incredible that you can walk through an ancient Roman village. It dates from about 200 B.C. and excavation and restoration is ongoing. We enjoyed watching a team working on restoring an old floor during our visit.

The place was hot, hot, hot and out in the open. Its a fairly large complex of Roman ruins with mosaics and ruined walls. There is an arena there with cool tunnels to walk through to find some relief from the blazing sun. Entry fee is minimal; EU citizens get in free. There is parking out on the main road... More

I have been here twice now. A coupe of years ago and then this month. It is a beautiful place. So peaceful as well. Never many people about. I would recommend going early in the day to avoid the heat and follow the route on the signs - saving the ampitheatre for the end. It is far nicer dropping down... More

If you are visiting in the summer, definitely go as early in the morning as possible (it opens at 9 am). When we arrived, the coliseum was blocked off so we could not go in, forcing us to first walk through the other ruins. By the time we had seen everything, the coliseum was opened, and I was glad that... More

We stayed an extra day in Seville just to see Italica. It is a very nice place to go to, we stayed for about 3 hours and there was not a lot of people. We arrived at 9:45 and it was not too hot then. At the entrance, there is a little house which provides a nice introduction video about... More

One of the best Roman sites I have seen, best one in Spain. Take the bus from plaza de armas bus station, 170 line goes out to Italica, bus will also take you back. The map location on this site is wrong for the spot by a few miles. Not many people or shade, bring a hat, sunscreen, and lots... More

Italica was really impressive. This was once the third largest city in the Roman Empire. There are so many preserved mosaics. You can really feel what the layout of the city looked like. The stone roads and curbs are original in many places. The most impressive feature was the largely-in-tact coliseum. You can walk through the galleries and picture what... More

If you love archeology and looking at ruins, this is your place. While it was interesting to imagine the numbers of people that have walked the same path that I was or stood in the same spot I was, other than that, it was not worth the hour plus drive from Sevilla…or the heat. (not for me anyway.)
