The tour was very interesting, and our guide, Miguel, was very professional, knowledgeable, and such a nice person. The tour started on time, we were in a very clean van. Miguel was a very safe driver. Italica is quite close to the center of the city, so it’s not a long drive. We were told many interesting facts about the ruins, and given lots of time to take pictures. The Monestary was also quite interesting; lots of beautiful sights inside like the cathedrals in the city.
So glad we booked this tour, and glad we were matched with Naturanda tour company and our guide, Miguel. A very wonderful half day spent in Italica!
The operator tour Naturanda was good, they arrive a little bit late, but Carlos was a great guide, and make the experience very interesting. The history in the place was great, they bring an small detail: tapa and orange wine, they were really good. The second place is the monastery, it’s less interesting than Italica history but it was fine.
I decided to the trip as I had a spare half a day before leaving Sevilla. The trip was as described in the itinerary: we were picked up from a specified location, driven to Itálica, had a break for a drink and went to see the monastery nearby and taken back to Sevilla. The guide was knowledgable. The bonus was her sense of humour. I would recommend the trip.
This tour as absolutely fabulous and our guide Montse really brought the history of Italica to life, she was excellent. We spent about two hours at the site, plus we had an additional visit to the incredible Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo, which was about five minutes drive away from Italica. I can't recommend this tour highly enough.
Due to our central location, we were able to arrange hotel pickup. Awesome! The bus was on time. Italica is only 10 to 15 minutes from Seville so most of the tour time is spent at the sites which was a bonus. Estela knows her stuff and was an excellent guide. There was time allowed for wondering through the ruins of the amphitheater to take some amazing photos. Pleasant surprise was beverage and tapas at bar across from the Italica before making our way to the monestario. We knew the monestario was included in the tour, but weren't really interested. Once we got there we were amazed by how beautiful it was, very impressive! A must see! This tour was worth every penny!
Even though it is not Pompei, Italica is a fascinating place to visit. The history of the town was well described by Estella our tour guide. The ruins, mosaics and especially the amphitheater were in sufficient condition to visualize the town at its glory days. The monestery we visited after the town wss also interesting and with many photo worthy sections. If you have time it is definitely worgh a visit
We had full three days in Seville which is plenty to see the main attractions. I booked this trip as we had a spare half day and I am so glad we did. I had never heard of Italica before our trip to Seville. The ruins are impressive. The (remaining) mosaics are beautiful. However, the amphitheatre is the star attraction. On the way back we called in at a monastery which was very interesting and a lot more impressive inside than it appeared from the outside. There is also a final stop for a welcome drink.
If you are interested in history and archaeology (and you have time) - book this to!ur
Italica has a theatre which is located some distance from the rest of the town; this is not visited as part of this tour which is a shame as I have seen pictures and it looks amazing.
Our guide was key to the success of this tour. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. Her name is Patricia and was great. Every aspect of the tour worked well. Nice bus and clearly marked. We left once everyone was onboard. Italica did not disappoint. I would highly recommend. Patricia was perfect for this trip
This trip is a must if you like history, Italica was remarkably well preserved considering it doesn’t have UNESCO status. Whilst we were there we saw archaeologists digging and cleaning mosaics, so I would assume the site will become larger over time. Our guide Reyes was an archaeology student and very knowledgeable, adding a touch of humour to bring to life the Roman site.
The trip to the monastery and bodegas was a lovely additional bonus, again we weren’t expecting the detailed information we were furnished.
Lovely well organised trip, the best day out from Seville we had, it exceeded our expectations and would thoroughly recommend.
Oh and yes italica is not a game of thrones theme park it’s a important historical site integral to the Roman Spanish history, you cannot help by impressed by the dragon pit... sorry I mean the amphitheater!
Excellent trip. Efficient, professional and knowledgeable guides. Italica is one of the better Roman ruins I have visited and a great chance to see a little of Spain outside of Seville. The monestary is also very interesting with a lot of history and the guide was very knowledgeable and informative. I would certainly recommend this tour if you want to see something other than the sites of Seville.
Excellent guide. Nicely paced tour and the added bonus of the trip to the monastery which was also very interesting. Highly recommended, something that would be difficult to do on your own from Seville on public transport.
Our tour guide was very informative. We enjoyed his varied stories about Italica. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
Excellent trip. pick up no problem.The guide was very knowledgeable and didn't rush us round. Very interesting place. I also enjoyed the trip to the monastery, another lovely place.
Roman ruins.......Im in. The guide was fantastic, she certainly knew her stuff. Id forgotten about the wine tasting so that was a pleasant surprise. Very enjoyable. Would recommend this tour highly.
If you are a big fan of Roman history it's better to visit Italica in Seville with an organised tour or drive yourself there. Public transport is the pits, because you could wait up to 2 hours to get back to Seville by bus. Sergio was our driver and guide. He's a very informative guy.
The guide for this tour was very energetic and obviously enjoyed her job and loved Seville. She picked us up at our hotel on time. She showed us many things that were not technically on the tour. A very good value
While the tour guide was enthusiastic, his very strong local accent made him hard to understand for a native English speaker. As a result, at the end of the tour, I did not have a full understanding of the places I had visited. But the places were well worth the time - a Roman amphitheater with a trace of far less well preserved ruins nearby, medieval monastery, and even a local bar to sample wine! Pickup from the hotel and drop off was without negative issues...in fact, the guide drove us through the centre of Seville on the way to Italica to make sure we could glance at some highlights. It would be useful to visit the archaeological museum in Seville afterward as this is where many artifacts from Italica are on display.
Very interesting with a good explanation from our guide Javier. We are used to seeing a lot of Roman places where I live in Italy but it was nice to see the largest Roman ruins in Spain. The old monastery we went to was amazing as well. It was also off season so we had the guide all to ourselves which was wonderful to be able to ask him questions.. There are a lot of things to see and do in Seville but if you have some extra time, this is worth it! Hope we can do another tour with Javier when we return to Seville.
Fantastic half day trip with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Really enjoyed hearing the history of the place.
A great experience thanks to a very knowledgeable guide. The place is a gem and we have it practically to ourselves for most of the tour. Mosaics and the amphitheater were highlights for me. Thank you, Patricia.
Italica is an incredible place to see. I've been there a few times in the past and have also attended concerts in the coliseum in the evening, and that is an amazing experience. This was the first time that I took a tour and it was great! It was a small group of 7, which was perfect, we also took the 9:00am morning time slot which was also the best, only because, it can get really hot in the afternoon. It was a quick drive from Sevilla and yet every step of the way our Tour Guide Juan, was fantastic and supper informative. I learned a lot of new things about the area, from there we went to see the Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo, followed by a wine tasting. It was great.
Javier was wonderful. We really enjoyed the Italica tour. The surviving mosaic floors were beautiful.
Italica was one of my favorite sites in Saville the tour was incredible. After we visited the ancient Roman empire we stopped in at a unforgettable Monastery. The tour could not have been any more memorable.
I highly recommend this morning half-day tour from Seville to Roman history buffs and those interested in the history of Seville and its environs. The tour guide was friendly, spoke English very well, and was thoroughly versed in the historical and cultural context of the places we visited. He picked me up by minivan near the apartment where I was staying. We had a small tour group of seven people on the day I went. The tour starts with the partially excavated ruins of the wealthy merchant area of this ancient town very sunny...don't forget your hats and sunscreen! and the remains of the city amphitheater, and then proceeds to the San Isidoro Del Campo Monastery before returning to Seville. The ruins give a great sense of the Roman presence in Spain the mosaics were particularly impressive and beautiful. The amphitheater is just amazing...the Coliseum on a smaller scale. The monastery was an unexpected gem of art and architecture. So if you are staying for a while in Seville, this is a great way to send a morning and be back in time for lunch!
This guys were very kind but a little too informal. They need to get more organized in order to provide a better service.
Remarkable ruins. Guide was helpful, responsive, convivial and informed.
Great outdoor tour for those interested in archeology and Roman ruins a short 15 minute drive from Sevilla. The tour van picks you up at or near your hotel in the old walled city of Sevilla. My group included tourists from Argentina, Australia, Italy, Spain, and U.S.A. The guide was engaging and friendly, and his knowledge was adequate. Be prepared for sun. See the ruins of house foundations with the original tile floors intact. I would come back in the rain because the colors in the mosaic floor tiles will be more intense when wet. Italica was once a town of about 3000 people. The ruins of the heated bath houses serving the entire town cover a large area. Also, see the ruins of the Roman amphitheater, which, back in the day, could seat 30k people from all around the countryside. After visiting the Italica site, there was a side trip to the Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo in the adjacent town of Santiponce. Admission fees to the Monasterio and the Italica site were included. Now, you have an incentive to visit the Archeological Museum of Seville, where many individual artifacts found at Italica are on display.
This was an excellent trip. Our guide was knowledgable and good company. We loved the mosaics at Italca. On the way back from Italica, he took us to a beatutiful monastery and then to a tavern for a glass of local wine. HIghly recommended!
I love Roman history and this did not disappoint. What is exciting is that they have just started uncovering these sites and they will continue to grow and change.
Great place to visit. especially the colosseum was incredible. Our guide was generous though at times it was very difficult to understand him due to his heavy accent, BUT he did try his best and was a great guy.
