What can I write... another must see if you're into history/architecture. You can hire an electric vehicle to move round the sites, however, you can not drive it.

Beautiful location along the sea. While the temples have not been restored as fully as at the Valley of the Temples, you are able to walk amongst the ruins and within one of the temples which has been partially restored. This coupled with fewer crowds...More

The temples at Selinunte didn’t compare to the ones at the valley of the temples. However, being able to walk inside the temple gave a whole different perspective of the size and magnitude of the temple itself and made the stop worthwhile.

The tour of ruins from bc are amazing. The thing people built without use of machinery is a wonder. The place is preserved nicely and we walked a lot but enjoyed every moment.

This ancient site is situated in a most wonderful location. Once home to 100000 people ,a rich & powerful Greek society. The ruins cover a vast area , taking at least 3 hours to see properly. The eastern temples are the most stunning, Temple E...More

The entrance was close to Temple E. This is the only rebuilt temple. The best part is that you are allowed to walk inside of it, so you can sense how it would have felt like and how the proportions were. In other ancient temple...More

Amazing ruins with a beautiful backdrop. We enjoyed everything about our visit. Although spread out - the reasonably priced golf buggy’s provided even more enjoyment for our young clan on the return leg! Fantastic day had by all

The site is well worth a visit. The temple ruins and acropolis occupy a large area that is well pathed and signposted. What was built here centuries ago was quite amazing and the reconstruction work done on some parts highlights what it must have been...More

Another Greek city in Sicily that rivals what you'll see in Greece or Turkey. The site is huge. You will first come on to the Eastern Hill, with Temples E, F and G. From there it's about a 20 minute walk to the Acropolis, where...More

If you're in this part of Sicily, these ancient ruins are a must. Take the tourist golf buggy-like train and soak it all up. It's not cheap – 36 euros for two – but it has to be done. And when you've finished (a couple...More

Hi from NYC .... We also did not use a guide. With the info posted at each part of the site, plus some googling, you’ll get a good idea of the layout and purpose of each building. We walked everywhere. I’d allow about 3... More

About four I think; basic golf cart. We walked but it was cool. Wouldn't want to do that mid summer as it's a big sight. Have fun.
