The preservation of the amphitheatre and mosaics is unlike any I've ever seen and the trip was incredibly easy using the service busses at the Placa de Armas. Stepping into the amphitheatre was like stepping back in time and knowing that Emperors Hadrian and Trajan...More

The tiny town of Santiponce, 20 mins from Seville was one of the highlights of my trip to Spain. Almost completely deserted and some of the most amazingly preserved Roman ruins in Europe. Cost the princely sum of €1.50 to enter. Make sure you walk...More

Italica is a large open site with many excavated homes and other buildings spread over a considerable area. There is a very impressive arena (apparently seating 25000). The site is in a constant state of excavation and clarification and suffers a bit from a lack...More

Roman ruins that have been preserved while also revealing their disrepair. You can walk through the amphitheater tunnels. Several spectacular mosaic floors from Roman homes have been conserved. However, it is blazingly hot, with little respite from the sun. Even in early June at 5:30...More

Tremendous archaeological site about 20 mins from Seville by bus. Unfortunately the site has been plundered over the ages of both stone and mosaiques but there are still superb mosaiques to be seen. The site is enormous and very little has been excavated so the...More

First, a couple tips: (1) get there early in the day - the place is large and there's quite a bit of walking to do under the hot sun, so it's easier to enjoy it before the day gets warm; (2) if getting there with...More

It was a great trip to see the ruins! I can't believe they are not a world heritage site. The weather was not great which meant very few people. The local bus was easy to take and although the bus driver did not speak English,...More

Went there with a group, much easier than solo in bus. The colosseum is unbelievably amazing. Also a preview of GOT's final season scene. If you are a fan of mosaics, you have to visit casa de Lebrija and the archeology museums. Why? Because a...More

Hi! My husband and I are looking to take a bus to ruins in a couple weeks on a Sunday, but we are having difficulty determining if buses ARE available and running on Sundays to take you to and from the site, back to Seville (Plaza de Armas). Would anyone happen to know if there are buses available on Sundays? Thank you!

The bus numbrer is M-170A. It departs from Plaza de Armas more or less every hour to Santiponce which is the actual name of the village where the ruins are.
