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.

Taking the shuttlebus uphill is highly recommended – walking down the perfect option. Yes, just another theatre, but with most of its seats in tact – even those for the VIPs – and a fantastic view it comes in as my favorite in Sicily. In the meagre ruins up there we found the foundations of a mosque for the Muslim... More

Both the Temple and the Theatre are very well preserved, the Temple is close to the entrance of the site, whereas the Theatre is a bit of a climb ... During warmer weather, since there is no shade, it could be prudent to rather take the bus from the base of the complex, up to the theatre, rather than walk.... More
