Wow! This landmark is so well preserved and it's amazing to think of what went on in the amphitheater so long ago. We saw it at the same time as we saw the temple and it was a very hot day so we were literally melting. It didn't ruin this amazing landmark though. A great place to visit.

If you travel to the top of the hill when you visit, walk down beyond some of the ruins to see this amphitheater.

The Teatro at Segesta is not to be missed! You have the option to take the bus up the steep road or walk on parralel trails. I recommend the trails, both for the photo ops & to earn the gelato when you return!

In this magnificent site at the top of the hill and above the temple, are the ruins of the ancient Hellenistic, I think, theatre. It is absolutely awe-inspiring to stand or sit, either as an audience member or further below in the amphitheatre, as an actor or dancer/ musician from the chorus and imagine being amongst those powerful performances with...

Do take the walk up to this arena. There are short cuts so that you don't have to follow the road.Amazing views as you sit and think about the numbers who have sat here before you.

You will almost certainly have come to Segesta to see the temple, but don't miss the chance of walking up the hill to the theatre built in the second century BC after the Romans had taken over the town. If walking is a pain, you can take the little shuttle bus up and back. The siting is impressive and the... More

I am not reviewing this site but merely advising that it is closed for renovation and that people hoping to visit it should check before going there or else they will be disappointed. The entry ticket has currently been reduced to E3 to take into account that only one monument is available for viewing. The renovation is likely to take... More

A beautiful example of a Roman style Theatre. In the immediate are there is an agora under excavation as well as a mosque. The area is teeming with history.
