Uncertain of the weather (believe me, the rain is staying mainly on the plain), we decided to visit Italica and were so pleased with our choice. Well laid out, with lots of spring flowers providing colour, it was a fascinating reconstruction of the old Roman city. The mosaics were amazing (but is it the ideal way to preserve them - open to the elements?). Well worth the visit.

This is a well preserved site which, whilst possibly not as grand as some of the Roman remains in Italy or even Tunisia, has a charming intimacy which is most appealing. The mosaics are magnificent, and the explanations, in English, are most helpful. A knowledge of Spanish is required for the audio-visual presentation.

Even if you've had the opportunity to see Pompeii in Naples and the Colosseum in Rome, you will still be enchanted with your walk through Italica, a 206BC Roman city. There is a lot still waiting for funding to be unearthed and it's fun to walk through the fields and visualize what will eventually be discovered. There are mosaics, statues, and an amazing colosseum to walk through. The video of the possible design and architecture of the city is also fascinating. Only challenge is that almost everything is in Spanish so if you cannot speak or read the language you will miss a lot. Still worth the 30 min bus ride from Seville!!!

The mosaic floors are fantastic. The amphitheatre is small but the passageways are very atmospheric and the general feel of the place is lovely.

Very interesting way to spend 1 1/2-2 hours. The 1.50 euro cost to get in is a bargain. Easy to get to from Plaza de Armas bus station. Take bus 172 to Santiponce. It's basically the last stop. Roman ruins at their finest. How this is still around is amazing. To see tiled floors with designs is mind boggling. The whole area is well kept. Walking around and then through the Amphitheater was something I will never forget. If the walls could talk? Being here in January, I pretty much had the place to myself. Well worth a visit.
