A 20 minute bus ride from Seville bus station that costs just 3 euros. Once you get there tell them you are an EU resident and you get in for free. But then you are pretty much on your own. However everything is well signposted in English and Spanish. Probably most of it is unexcavated but hardly surprising if they... More

This place a very short ride away from Seville is very worth a visit. The fee is small to get in. Once inside watch the sort film that is in the building to the left of the entrance and then walk around the site. It is amazing what they have found. I took a tour with a company while there... More

This attraction to the north east of Seville is easy to get to by road (well signed from Seville ring road) either by car (limited parking) or public transport from Seville. The entrance is not particularly well signed but entrance is free to EU citizens. A leaflet in English is provided and a guide book in English (10 euros) is... More

We visited Italica as part of our honeymoon trip to Seville and it was well worth the visit - felt like we had taken a short bus ride to Ancient Rome. I would advise against using a tour advisor to access this. We got a bus from central bus station in Seville which cost us 6 euros between us return... More

Restoration work is ongoing here, but that adds to the attraction - it was fascinating to see the archaeologists' painstaking work on one of the mosaics. And what mosaics - the "House of the Birds" is a memorably beautiful example of what you can see here. The amphitheatre is huge and impressive, but I enjoyed the domestic remains more -... More

Worth a 1/2 day trip from Seville, easy to get to on the bus and being able to walk around the gladiatorial arena is very atmospheric. Aside from the amphitheatre, most of the ruins are only a few stones high, so essentially just the floor plans survive, but the mosaics are pretty good too given they are over 2,000 years... More

Just a 15 minute drive out of Seville and what an amazing site! We've been to many ancient Roman sites in our travels but this had a different feel. Access was much easier and the uncovered digs were beautifully preserved. Highly recommend.

Definitely a ruin! A blast from the past. The mosaic left behind are still very beautiful but too bad most are gone. Best is the gladiator's arena. Wish they had more information in English so read up before you go. Worth the drive out there to visit.
