 Italica is on the site of the modern village of Santiponce, 9 kilometres north-west of Seville. Much of the Roman town that Hadrian would have known as a boy is covered by the modern village (the buildings of which remains can be seen today were, for the most part, built rather later, during Hadrian's reign as Emperor), but he would have been familiar with the theatre, and with at least one of the surviving bath complexes.
