Italica is one of the most extraordinary sights of a trip to Seville - do not miss it! I will leave others to marvel about the ruins themselves and concentrate on the practical information. We made our own way there by catching the bus from...More

Italica, an ancient Roman settlement and birthplace of Emperors Trajan and Hadrian, is located about 10km outside Seville. The site is still being excavated but it is possible to see the layout of the town and also some lovely mosaic floors. Most of the stone...More

I thoroughly recommend a visit to Italica. It is a mini Pompeii. The site is easy enough to get around. We went on Sunday and it was free entry. It is a half hour bus trip from Seville. The day we went was very hot...More

I know it says to spend a 1/2 day here, but I can't imagine more than 60 minutes. The amphitheater is the best. It would be better if they had placards up at each "stop" helping to explain it all.

Italica is within easy reach of Seville and a must for anyone vaguely interested in Roman history/ archaeology. The site is huge, Street layout is clear and there are glimpses of the underground drainage that look impressive. Only a limited number of houses and buildings...More

If you are visiting Sevilla, it is well worth the 30 minute trip to Italica. Amazing discoveries and historical relevance. Easy to spend a 1/2 day or whole day. Great restaurants nearby with amazing dishes to enjoy with a cold Cruzcampo.

A walking tour guide in Seville described this as the unknown destination just outside the city that nobody visits: so we did. We were amazed and greatly impressed by the Amphitheatre said to seat 25k people. Perhaps one of the most complete surviving examples that...More

This was closed when we arrived due to filming for The Game of Thrones. Wish there was some way to have found out before we drove all the way there ... but still was a nice interlude before heading to Cadiz.

We first visited Italica in 2005/6 as part of The Silver Route and were just so impressed. We have just finished the second visit leaving thoroughly disheartened and shocked. It has been sanitised. Virtually nothing done since last visit. NO SIGNAGE IN ENGLISH. NO BROCHURE...More
