As a Classics teacher, visiting the Roman remains in Italica was an exciting prospect for me. It was easy to get there on the bus from Plaza de Armas (M170 to Santiponce from stop 40, cost €1.55) but once there, there was very little guidance. The mosaics were fantastic, but despite a useful background information leaflet given to me upon... More

This site is not heavily promoted and yet is quite astounding. A Roman city from 200 BC with an Amphitheatre, Walls, Beautiful Ceramic floors and just an amazing array of... More

We went to Italica with high expectations, but these were not met. The grounds are not well maintained, there are few facilities. There are so many sights in Seville that are much, much better that you can save a trip to Italica.

Why aren't these remains more advertised for tourists? They are not far from Seville, but probably best done by car. The site is enormous, if you want to see it all. But the amphitheatre and the mosaics are the best and can be done in a quick hour. It is lovely to just wander around though. It would be a... More

Although this site could use a little more TLC (like Baelo Claudia has done) it has some wonderful examples of mosaics and housing/shops from Roman Spain. Admission is free, and there is a nice restaurant right across the street! Stop in the town of Saltiponce to see the amphitheater also.

Decided to make our own way after being told the trip may or may not take place - charge was €28 each transport included. Well best decision we made, bus left the station €3.10 for 2 tickets, last stop Italica, and the driver understood this word. Good time table at the stop and since you pass it v easy to... More

For some reason the Italica is not well advertised to tourists. It is an amazing sight to see and reminded us of a mini version of Pompeii and the colosseum in Rome. It's about 10km from Sevilla. If you have a car, you can drive or you can take a public bus. We opted for an electric bike tour with... More

Had a great time immersing myself, walking through 2000 year old history. This is a great family place and a place really to just understand how life once was. When you get there they give you a Pam-let that's in English to help you on a self guided tour and everything else like the description/information boards are in Spanish. I... More

We have seen many great roman and earlier periods excavations and restaurations in past years. Italica deserves more attention. The mosaics are outstanding and exciting.

A great short trip from Seville. Catch the bus from Plaza de Armas to Santiponce, the town where Italica is located. Italica is the last stop. The trip costs 1.55? each way and you pay on the bus. Take your EU passport and entrance to Italics is free. A large and impressive site, you can learn about the Roman way... More
