Nicely preserved ruins. We visited with Naturanda guide David who was immensely knowledgeable. When our trip was cut short due to the early closing of the ruins, David offered us the opportunity to go with him to take a guided walking tour of neighboring Carmona. It was a delightful visit and we really appreciated our guides.

An easy trip out of Seville brings one to a really interesting and well 'labelled' excavation of a significant Roman town. Highpoint's are the beautiful mosaics, the huge bath area and the massive and well-preserved 'colosseum'. Recommended

Well worth a visit if you have a spare day in Seville. The highlight of the site is probably the reasonably well preserved Roman Amphitheater, one of the largest in the world. Not much is left of the city itself but it's still interesting to view the foundations and multiple mosaics which give a feel of what the houses would... More

We were very surprised there was no one else there when we went. The ruins are very impressive, it's worth travelling for the amphitheatre alone, which is good since the rest was closed off! We did ask why but no one working there seemed to know. However, it was free to get in. It was a shame we couldn't see... More

We heard about this place from a local. Not very far out of Seville. Commonly called Italica. Quite an amazing site complete wit mosaics and a pit where the gladiators fought. Behind it is the city where you can see amazing mosaics, roman baths and the village remains.i

You should take your time to walk the whole area, and you'll discover one of the anciest cities in Spain. Italica was built BC, and is the place place of birth of two "emperators" Adriano and Trajano. You can arrive by bus from Plaza the Armas to Santiponce. I recommend you to call before and ask at the tourist office... More

Firstly the 170 or the 172 buses take you to this place from Plz de Armas. It is a breeze. But today 22 July 2016 the theatre and bath were in accessible and all you could see at Italica proper was the amphitheatre. What a disappointment after going all the way out there!!!! I was not the only one clearly... More

These ruins are very evocative of the large Roman city which was built, and ultimately abandoned, centuries ago. The audio-visual presentation gave us a sense of the original design and occupants of the city. This was a really memorable sight, and we are glad we detoured to see it.
