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

This is a nice and interesting sight. The amphiteatre is well preserved and is worth the visit. You can reach Itálica by staking bus 170 from busstation Plaza de Armas (platforms 40&41inside). It takes about 30 minutes and costs around €1.40 per personen. EU-inhabitants do not pay entrance fee at Itálica. All explanations are in Spanish but the brochure is... More

What a find! We got the bus from the bus station in Seville for €1.55 each (single) and it took about 40 minutes each way. The bus stops right outside (last stop) so you can't miss it. Entrance is free for EU citizens. A most impressive site with amphitheatre, ruins and great mosaics. The guide we met halfway round and... More

We took the local bus out here to see this site. There is still much work to be done. The amphitheatre is impressive, from Roman times. There are also some lovely mosaics that one can see.

Actual address - Anfiteatro de Italica 41080 Santiponce, Sevilla. This is in a small neighboring town of Santiponce, about a 20 minute cab ride (25 Euros) from the Plaza de Espana. Former Roman city of Italica from 206 B.C. Birthplace of Trajan and Hadrian.

This place does not seem to be widely advertised but we decided to give it a try on the local bus. It turned out to be a very cheap and interesting morning out. It was easy to get there on the bus from bus station (M170 to Santiponce. I think cost was €1.60) and the bus stops outside the entrance.... More
