We were truly awed by this magnificent historic site which was almost deserted when we visited on a sweltering July afternoon. (In the searing heat, it would've been a good idea to pay for the small electric buggies that ferry people around the large site.)...More

Truly amazing site. The two temples that have been reconstructed have been done some sympathetically and give just a glimpse and impression of their magnificence. Even just walking among the massive ruined columns gives a sense of awe. It is worth it to book the...More

Selinunte was my favorite archaeological site in Sicily. First, it wasn’t crowded at all, and we could poke around almost alone in some instances. Secondly, only one temple has been very restored, but there are other temples that are partially intact so that you see...More

Italy has a lot of ruins, but not many of them are Greek. Selinunte is a really cool complex of Greek ruins that you can walk though. While many of them are in rather poor condition, some have been reconstructed / restored and are stunning!...More

A large site of mainly ruins, with one temple that has been reconstructed - we had a guide which really helped to bring it to life! Beautifully situated next to the coast - well worth a visit!

Large and spectacular, these ruins are easy to access with plenty of parking. The ruins are vast and you'll need plenty of time to see them. They are well signed and interpreted and it is quite easy to understand without a guide. There is a...More

We used the Michelin Green Guide, which we took with us, and found it along with the excellent explanatory signage to be fine. We hiked and did not use a guide.

We used the Michelin Green Guide. I did not see guides at the site, but we went in late October, so maybe there are in the summer time.
