Just a few miles north of Seville, Spain, you"ll find the ancient ruins of Itálica, the first Roman city outside of Italy. The city was founded in 206 BCE by the Roman general Scipio as a place to house veterans from the Second Punic Wars. Itálica was also the birthplace of at least two Roman emperors.
