On a very hot day (41) travelled to the temple and amphitheater, very impressive. If you like the classical buildings very enjoyable but the view of the valley is gorgeous too.

Off the beaten track but well worth the effort! I have visited 3 times and I never mind going back. Take the shuttle bus up the hill for the Greek amphitheater too!

We have travelled extensively in Italy and Greece and this has to be one of the best preserved Roman temples found anywhere, wonderful setting as well. Plenty of parking nearby, reasonable cost. There is also a Roman amphitheater on the adjacent hill which you can visit. It's not huge by Roman standards, but again very well preserved, well worth visiting... More

If you happen to come close to this site you must pay a visit to this Temple. There is not a lot to see just this temple and a teatre with some other ruins close to it but it worth going there because of the extraordinary condition of the building very well preserved. Ticket is around 8 euro for all... More

If you are around in the area it is worth the trip, but I would not drive more then one hour to visit the place. The parking is free, entrance 6€ and the bus to the top 1.50€. The place is very well preserved and restoration work nicely done, the view on the top must have been in the past... More

Great photo opportunities at the Ampitheater and the Theater, the theater is a must see - the fact that it has remained intact for over 2000 years is a tribute to some excellent architects so long ago. The views are also spectatular from the back-side of the theater. Bus tickets are 1.50 euro each to get to the top of... More

We stayed in Trapani and decided that we had to visit the temple. We travelled by bus. Though not easy to travel from Trapani to Segesta and back, it was really worth it. The bus stops right outside the entrance to the temple and amphitheater. Very important that you check bus schedule before you decide to go by bus. You... More

While I was less impressed with the ruins than I thought I'd be, I really enjoyed the hike and views of the surrounding hills and valleys. My husband enjoyed the ruins as I was supposed to. So between us, it was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The parking was easy and free, but information at the starting point... More
