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.)

If you love the Romans and thier history then when you go to Seville, don´t miss visiting the Roman City of Italica. You can get a bus for 1.50 euros at the estacion Plaza de Armas and it leaves you right at the door. Well worth it! Make it a day and have lunch right across the street at Venotrillo... More

I really enjoyed walking around the ruins and looking at the tile flooring that they created centuries ago. The coliseum was pretty amazing too.

The site is extensive and the points of interest widely scattered. There is little shade and it can be rather hot walking out to the mosaics but it is worth the effort - they are lovely.

It's really well preserved: you can see some of the floors, bread ovens, roman baths and even a mini colosseum! Super cool!! As a portuguese citizen, I didn't have to pay so it was an even better experience :)

Italica is a magnificent ruin, the remains of what was once a Roman city of 500,000 people, third largest in the Empire. The suggested itinerary is very well done, the signage (in Spanish) is excellent, and the design for access is good. And the ruins are awesome, especially the amazing tile floors, about twenty well preserved, in some cases virtually... More

It was interesting to see the amphitheater but that was it. I wish we had some sort of guide or that they had a tour option so that we could have learned more. Instead we just walked through the ruins and that was it. I will tell you that entrance on Saturday is free for everyone!

What an incredible place, it was once the largest Roman City after Rome and Alexandria. The Amphitheatre is well preserved as are the mosaics, and the grounds are well kept, the sprinkler system for the plants works well - I got drenched whilst sitting in the shade! For me as a wheelchair user some parts were harder to access than... More
