Located in Sicily's far-southwest, the Greek temples at Selinunte see less tourism than the other major (Greek) archeological site at Agrigento. Selinunte is also close to the sea, with a beautiful panoramic vista. The seaside, though, portends the city's fate at the hands of the...More

Definitely get a tour guide to fully appreciate the history of this site. Lots of walking and can be hot in September but worth the visit.

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.

Short walk from our B&B and an easy site to walk round, especially good to get inside the ruins. Worth a look round the museum.

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
