Guided tour to Italica, the first Roman city founded in the Iberian peninsula and the birthplace of the Emperors Trajan and Hadrian. The main building on this archaeological site is the amphitheatre, the third largest in the world with a capacity for 25,000 spectators. Italica is also well known by its mosaics and 'domus'. Then, visit 'San Isidoro del Campo' - a restored Medieval fortress monastery, all by minivan.
On this half-day tour you will visit both the Roman Theatre, located in the centre of Santiponce and the archaeological site of Italica. Italica holds an amphitheatre that was once counted as the largest in the ancient world. It was one of the earliest Roman settlements in Spain and was founded in 206 BC. It became renowned for its military importance in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. You can wander through the tunnels where gladiators would once had walked and stand in the den which would have housed the lions. In the centre of the arena there is a great pit which would have been covered by a wooden structure. This was used for gladiator and wild animal sports.
