About Anfiteatro De Italica, Seville
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.

Roman city of Italica, with the best floor mosaics in the houses that I have seen. The whole town is accessible to walk round, streets, houses of rich and poor, including a really well restored amphitheatre complete with arena, seating and tunnels underneath. Amazing place and... it is all free! We spent an afternoon here, there is so much to see. Do not miss this one
This amphitheatre is in pretty good nick and the roman town next to it has a lot of mosaics. It's an on going site. Most of the finds are in the museum at the end of Maria Louisa gardens
Interesting ruins, amphitheatre and mosaics are very impressive. info boards are mainly in Spanish.
Trenendously interesting with Spanish guides. Unfortunately it closes at 3 pm on Sundays and they close sections by 2:15 to get everyone out.
Amphitheatre is not in great shape and lots of it has been unhelpfully restored
