In this half-day route we will visit one of the most unique places in Andalusia: The visit to the Roman Ruins of Itálica, the cradle of Emperors!
We will begin the excursion to the Roman city of Italica departing from Seville at around 9:30 a.m. In just over 15 minutes we will arrive at the nearby town of Santiponce, where more than 2000 years ago the Romans founded their first city on the Iberian Peninsula. Our official guide will make a brief presentation of the place and we will enter the ancient city where emperors like Hadrian and Trajan were born to discover all the secrets of the place.
We will walk along the ancient Roman streets, mosaics, baths and houses, such as Neptune’s or « the House of the Birds ». These will be some of the preserved wonders that we will have the opportunity to discover in a tour full of very surprising images.
The famous Itálica Amphitheater is the third largest in the world , with a capacity for 25,000 spectators and where the famous gladiator fights took place. It is currently one of the prominent settings for the popular Game of Thrones series. Our visitors will have the opportunity to walk through the Arena and the galleries of the building, traveling back in time to the time of ancient Rome.
We will also see its famous Roman Theater , discovered in the middle of the 20th century. This is one of the best preserved in Europe and, in addition, it is still in use today for events such as the famous Santiponce international dance festival.
After visiting the archaeological site, our guide will accompany you to the Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo , a medieval fortress that hides treasures from the Mudejar, Gothic and Baroque periods , paintings, murals and significant sculptures. After finishing this visit we will head back to Seville, where our guide will say goodbye after having enjoyed this magnificent activity.
