This site, just to the northwest of Seville, offers not only the ruins of an arena but multiple buildings spread across a gently inclining hillside, including the opportunity to see some beautiful mosaic floors. On the afternoon we visited, we were able to watch archaeologists working to gently clean recently excavated floors. At the time we arrived, entry was free,... More

Went here from Seville based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The site is compact but with plenty of mosaics and the distinct Roman street layout. Amphitheatre has recently been used as a filming location for game of thrones. Very few others wandering round when we visited - free for EU citizens. There is a small seating area... More

The Roman ruins in Italica are something else - beautiful mosaic floors, remains of several buildings & gardens set on a hillside & a large amphitheatre which is open for you to walk around the tunnels & imagine it in it's full glory. A stunning place - really a very interesting part of our European history & well worth the... More

This is a trip back in time to see a little of what Roman life was like. Well worth the trip and in March, at least, it was free to enter.

If you like Roman sites Italica makes a pleasant side trip from Seville. Buses leave from Plaza de Armas bus station on the hour and half hour at a cost of 1.55 euros. The trip takes about 25 mins and drops you right at the gate of the site. There is no fee for EU citizens. The site covers a... More

Been visiting Andalusia for years and never new this place existed until a BBC documentary - just outside Seville - if driving my advice is to use a SatNav with up to date maps it will still likely drop you several hundred yards away but the site is well signposted and there is usually plenty of parking close by. Admission... More

Catch a short bus ride from the Bus Terminal in Seville, the cost of the ticket is amazingly cheap! This site has been excavated and you really feel you are walking around a Roman town.

We were pointed to this site by the staff at the hotel. We were the only visitors on a lovely warn Spring day. The descriptions are good and we thought the close access to the site was much better than many other Roman sites we visited in Italy and Malta. This was an unexpected gem and is not too far...

We went here as the recommendations were great. It was about a 30 minute drive from our hotel, and very poorly directed. We parked in what we thought was a good spot and walked in the gates. There was not charge and there was a man there that said "go up this way and come down that way". He also... More

Free to EU citizens, but not us Americans. We paid 1.50 euros each to enter and it was worth every cent. This is a huge site and walking into the remains of one of the largest of all Roman amphitheaters was positively eerie. We walked a bit around the ruins but the rain cut our visit short. The interpretation center... More
