Breathtaking views!

Paired with the visit to the Temple, it was an outstanding day. The interest and beauty of the sites combined with spectacular views. Absolutely must see!

This theatre in the province of Trapani dates from the 3rd century BC in an area settled centuries earlier by the indigenous Elymian people who I not heard of before. They were in this part of Sicily over 6000 years before Christ and although not a lot is known about them they did establish the cities here in Segesta and... More

Fantastic views - imagining the history and people watching performances with the sea in the background. We took the bus (included in the ticket) up to the theatre, many people then walk back. There is a vending machine at the top where the bus stops but no other drinking facilities, so take some water with you as gets very hot... More

We walked up the hill rather than paying for the tourist bus and would recommend that route. The views in the afternoon light were worth the trip.

In relation to my other comment related to visiting Segesta, it needs to be stressed that it is better to buy a shuttle ticket to get to this site. It is a good distance uphill and unless you are a hiker, it is highly recommended to take the shuttle van. It is located on the top of a hill and... More

Segesta was one of the major cities of the Elymian people, one of the three indigenous people of Sicily, and is one of the most important archeological sites in the province of Trapani (there is also a very well preserved Doric temple to see), After a very short walk (from the agora) through a path along which some ruins of...

Wonderful, uncrowded visit to a well preserved amphitheater well worth the walk up the hill. Good afternoon lighting for photos

While visiting Sicily, the drive to Segesta is so very much worth the trip! To climb up and down the stairs carved out of rock is exhilarating. There were several other tourists there when I made my trip and all had cameras in hand. Walking distance away from this marvelous structure is the Templo. The art of the ancients to... More

Well worth either the walk up the hill or a bus ride. Fantastic view down to Castellomare. Lovely to sit and soak up the atmosphere.
