This unfinished fifth-century Doric temple has everything but a roof and an interior, and the huge structure seems unaffected by time. A small theater atop a nearby hill offers visitors a stunning view of green hills and the deep blue hues of the sea below.

When you arrive at the parking place you get a first impression of the immense, well conservated temple high on the hill. Walking the ancient road up, you feel the history around you. The temple itself is in good condition, respecting the age, and the view on the surroundings are spectacular. The a short bus drive up another hill to... More

We took the morning bus from Palermo for the hour long trip out to Segesta. Nearing the site one gets glimpses of the temple amongst the hills which in itself is exciting and the bus dropped us off near the entrance and the ticket office, cafe and toilets. To the right of the office is a gate where they check... More

No knock on Temple of Concord but this one is better and the amphitheater is better than either Taormina or Siracusa. Much smaller crowds than any of those. Of course it is out of the way unless you are in western sicily! Though it is right off the A19 motorway. The walk up to the amphitheater is steep and can... More

The first glimpse of the temple lets you know you are in for a treat. It's a few hundred metres up a dusty track but my husband coped despite having a bad knee and it was worth the effort. The setting is just wonderful and the temple impressive. However the best for us was the amphitheatre - you can walk... More

Just visited today and really enjoyed the site. The temple itself is very well preserved and imposing. It is in a marvelous site at the top of a hill. Make sure to pay the 1.5 euro to go up to the amphitheater, worth every cent. This is on the hill facing the temple. The views are great. We walked down... More

This location has it all. Wonder Greek temple from 400AD. This was a short walk up the hill from the car park. We took the shuttle bus, 1.5€ each, up the steep hill to see the amphitheater and other ruins. Well worth it...just too far to walk on a hot day. If you do walk, please take an umbrella and... More

Suggestion: if you really must see Greek ruins and temples.... Please go to Greece. These guys running the show here are ripping off tourists. It's sad but true. Sicily is really beautiful and so much to share from its wonderful cuisine to breathtaking landscapes. Segesta should not be run this way!

I have visited Segesta at least 4 times, and still I am completely charmed by its setting on the hill with panoramic views of the hills, valleys and nearby gorge. If you are traveling toward Erice or Trapani, it is not that far off the autostrada to get there. The temple is intact and there is only one place that... More

We visited the temple and amphitheatre at Segesta and had a lovely day. The monuments were in good condition, and rather than take the (free) coach up the hill we waked up a little track. Although steep in places, it added to the adventure for us, and we saw parts of the ruin that probably not many would. The view... More
