Discover the ruins of Italica on a tour from Seville

The first authentically Roman city in Spain, located just 15 minutes from Seville, is where the final scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed. It was founded in 206 B.C. by the Roman general Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus and was the birthplace of two Roman emperors, Trajan and Hadrian.

Currently called Archaeological Ensemble of Italica, visitors today can enjoy walking the old streets and exploring the ruins of the houses and public buildings. One spectacle that must be seen is the amphitheater. It had a capacity for 25,000 people and was the third-largest one in the Roman Empire.

Other important sights include the mosaic floors, the Traianeum, the statues of Diana, Venus and Trajan, the public baths and the partly reconstructed Roman theatre in Santiponce. Thanks to the fact that none of the following civilizations settled over the ruins of Italica, it is quite a well-preserved city and well worth a visit.

After this unforgettable experience, we take a panoramic tour of the city of Sevilla by bus, where you can see the more emblematic monuments of the city: Puente Triana, Calle Betis, Plaza de Toros, and Torre del Oro before dropping you off at your hotel.

Information: Guests must present a reservation voucher, which you will receive after the online reservation, to the tour guide before starting the visit in order to receive your entrance to the monument (printed or on your smartphone). The order of the visit may be modified before any unforeseen event.
