Description

The ruins include mosaics that have been preserved from a Roman city dating back to the 3rd century B.C. There are also remains from unique constructions such as the Roman walls, the baths, the Roman amphitheatre and the aqueduct. Italica was the birthplace of the emperors Trajan and Hadrian. It enjoyed a period of opulence in which new buildings were constructed, including the amphitheatre, and its homes were decorated with mosaics on the floor. The ruins of these constructions have been preserved. The archaeological excavations began between 1751 and 1755 and have continued without pause until the present day.
