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

Italica is worth a trip. Birthplace of Trajan, home for a time of rome's best emperor Hadrian, Italica is just minutes from seville by car or bus. Amphitheatre is impressive (as are they all), and there are some nice mosaics in situ. To see more, visit the archaeological museum in seville, where italica's best is on display. In seville and...

As a history buff, this was a highlight when visiting Seville. A local bus goes to the village of Santiponce, 9 km north of Seville from the Seville's bus terminal at Plaza de Armas, or you can easily find a tour guide but it's of course, more costly. Don't miss the video presentation even though it's only in Spanish, the... More

Italica is a welcome repose from busy Seville. In terms of Cultural Heritage Management Italica is a success: free for European citizens, excellent signage in Spanish and English, beautiful landscaping and an emphasis on preservation rather than excavation (the larger part of Italica is preserved for future generations of archaeologists). The book written on Italica available at the entrance booth... More

Get the bus to the Roman ruins of italica in the village of Santaponce and you won't be disappointed. Free to get in (if you are from Europe) and allow a few hours as it is a large site and includes a fabulous Amphitheatre.

This is a well signposted attraction with plenty of on street parking nearby. The site is free to enter. There are plenty of information boards in English and a well laid out route. When we were there it was nice to see lots of parties of schoolkids learning about their history. The amphitheatre and mosaics were particularly good. No coffee... More

On perhaps one of the hottest days we experienced on our visit, we visited this the main site of Italica which sits about 9kms out of Seville to the west of the river near the village of Santiponce. The entire site is on a huge scale with significant elements(Teatro Romana) still in use even today. This theatre is in the... More
