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.

If your idea of Italy is fallen-down ruins from Rome, visit this site to see what other cultures have left laying about. Segesta isn't the largest site in Sicily, but amazing views of the valley, the temple, and the amphitheater all make it worth the short drive from Trapani. Selinunte, a few hours to the south, provides a nice contrast,... More

Impressive Greek ruins in Segesta that date back to the 400's BC. Since it didn't have a roof, they think it was never completed. Well preserved. Easy walk up to the ruins. Get your tickets in the gift shop. There is also a building near the gift shop with free bathrooms. If you love Greek ruins, also visit The Valley... More

The Segesta ruins were so well preserved. You almost think you're in Ancient Greece, they're so amazing. Besides the temple itself, the views of the valley and mountains are simply stunning. Some of the workers weren't very nice, but don't let that hold you back from going here.

The temple and the theatre are very impressive and their location provides beautiful view.There is a short hike from the free parking area to the temple. The main two ruins are incredibly well preserved. A must see area, I would definitely recommend.

If you're bored whilst on holiday in or around Trapani or Palermo then Segesta is a nice trip out. But there's only one, unfinished, Greek temple and an impressive theatre on the hillside above the car park. It's not cheap to visit and, whilst there's no charge for parking, you will need to pay extra to get a shuttle bus... More

A climb to the temple reveals an appealing work of past splendor. The climb is rigorous, but it's worth the effort to see the outlines of a Greek monument so perfectly situated on a green incline. The drive up an adjacent road offers another glimpse from on high.

As the ancient Greeks started the wine industry in Sicily about 400 BC; this was a good time for some fresh air and a walk around this Doric temple. Despite the corrosion this temple is a spectacle. Love to see the ravens fly as they live in this edifice year-round. The ampitheatre is small; better sites in Siracusa or Taormina.... More

The Grecian Temple and amphitheater are well preserved. It is a ways outside of Palermo. It has great views of the Temple and the surrounding area.

Spread over two sites but quite reasonable €6 entry fee. The temple is in a lovely back drop of the surrounding valley and gorge. The climb up the hill to the ancient city and theatre is a bit of a hike on a hot day but there is the shuttle bus (€1.50 return). The theatre has a brilliant view across... More
