Meet a knowledgeable guide in Seville and head to one of the most historic places in the country, the Roman city of Itálica. Located in the lower valley of the Guadalquivir River, halfway between Seville (Hispalis) and Alcalá del Río (Ilipa) and very close to the roads connecting the mining areas of the Sierra Norte of Seville and Huelva, Itálica has played an important strategic role political, military and economic at the height of the Roman Empire.

Established in 206 AD. When General Publio Cornelio Escipión (Scipio) decided to create a place for soldiers injured in the battle of Ilipa against the Lusitanians, Itálica is full of history. Learn all about the Roman Empire and their control of the region from your guide, then explore the ruins on your own.

Admire the superb mosaics of the House of the Planetarium and visit the amphitheater and the monument of Trajan. Next, visit the largest of the thermal baths, the gym, an old bread oven, two restored Roman houses, and the remains of the city streets.
