Know More about this tour

Meet up with a knowledgeable guide in Seville and head out of town to one of the most historic places in the country, the Roman city of Itlica. Located in the Lower Guadalquivir River valley, halfway between Seville (Hispalis) and Alcal del Ro (Ilipa) and very close to the routes that connected to the mining zones of the Sierra Norte of Sevilla and Huelva, Itlica played an important strategic role in both politics, military and economic matters during the height of the Roman Empire.

Established in 206 A.D. when the general Publio Cornelio Escipin (Scipio) decided to create a place for wounded soldiers in the battle of Ilipa against the Lusitanians, Itlica is full of history. Learn all about the Roman Empire and their control of the region from your guide, then explore the ruins for yourself.

See the gorgeous mosaics in the House of the Planetarium and tour the amphitheater and Trajan monument. Then visit the largest of the thermal baths, the gym, a former bread oven, two restored Roman houses, and remnants of city streets.

    We heard that there's a historic part of Sevilla that was used for filming Game of Thrones, and decided to go see.
    We booked this tour to ensure we learned the history of Sevilla, and some modern info as well.

    Thanks to our guide, we enjoyed the tour and learned a lot as well.

    Our guide was easy to understand (we speak English and just a little Spanish) and a very nice guy.
    He obviously knows the history of Sevilla well, he even has a college degree in history.
    Our guide made the tour so interesting, that we forgot about the weather (hot!) and took lots of
    pictures.
    And he was nice enough to give us a ride back to the city (not included in the tour).

    Sevilla is a lovely, authentic Spanish city with a rich history. We can't wait to go back again,
    and I would definitely recommend taking advantage of a tour like this, especially with this guide.

    This tour was really phenomenal! And our guide Javier was great! Javier was personable, professional as well as extremely knowledgeable about everything this tour had to offer. We really enjoyed seeing this interesting and historic landmark and learning all about it. We would highly recommend!

    This was a fun tour. We were picked up at our hotel paid extra, but worth it by our guide who was a freelancer but absolutely excellent. I am so sorry I do not recall his name, but he was lively, caring and charming. The owner of the company apparently drove us, dropped us off, and picked us up to drive back to Seville. For anyone interested in ancient Rome this is definitely worth seeing. Only about 20 minutes outside of Seville, there were very few people there. Some beautiful mosaics. A fascinating huge arena that we learned was a shooting site for Game of Thrones! Our guide showed us the video from the show. That is the highlight and in and of itself makes the trip worthwhile. This was a private tour, and 2 hours was perfect. I definitely recommend it.

    Our guide Miguel was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the siite. The ruins of the amphitheater are quite nice in that a significant portion of the building survived. There are also some very fine mosaics to see. If you and #39;ve seen Pompeii or Ostia you and #39;ll probably wish there was more to see.

    Wonderful place to visit and an excellent tour guide who explained the layout of the city and its history really well. To get to the meeting place at the front of Italica catch the M17OA bus from the city bus station. It runs about every half hour and Italica is the last stop as the bus turns around - very obvious. Highly recommend this tour.
