Just a little way out of Seville’s main town area is one of the best preserved ruins of Ancient Rome, Italica. The ruins were excavated in the 18th century, a work that still slowly continues. Publius Cornelius Scipio founded the city of Italica in 206 BC, during the reign of Augustus. It’s where the emperors Trajan and Hadrian were born, and was famous for its tiled houses and the great amphitheater where gladiator battles were held. The amphitheatre, though undeniably eroded, is the main attraction here, but there are also temples, aqueducts, foundations, and floor mosaics. They’ve also recreated a Roman garden here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Seville Itinerary 3 Days.

If you're a Game of Thrones fan and visiting Seville, you really have no excuse not to make the trip here. Barely 30 minutes away from the city. Very unassuming from the outside, quietly impressive once you're there.
Hidden gem with less crowd than others...worth going with free entrance probably on special day..
Wow. Just wow. Definitly a must see espcially for history bluffs! One thing. if you take a taxi there its pretty hard to get a taxi back m, so I recommend walking to the bus stop and taking it to Plaza de Espana and the cost is like under 2 euros. (Theres also a information centre a little walk away which has a very helpful lady who speaks English)
This was not nearly as big as the Colosseum in Rome, however a much more intimate tour. Lots to see here and the surrounding area. It was a nice surprise to find a Colosseum here in Spain with many of the same features as you would find in Rome. You are allowed to walk freely throughout the are without a tour guide.
Very nice set of roman ruins near Seville. As several buses go there, it is easy to reach. Don't forget to visit the San Isidoro del Campo monastery while you are in Santiponce (it is free).
