We liked this site a bit more than the Valley of the Temples and Segesta as it felt a bit more off beaten track and was not so crowded. You visit two sites (you can walk or drive between the two) the first containing three...More

I've been to lots of Greek ruins around Italy (Paestum, Agrigento, Taormina, Segesta, Solunto) and this is by far one of the biggest in size and one of worst in condition and maintenance. First the site (town) is in three sections (two entries close by)....More

We went early to avoid crowds and the heat and wandered around the beautiful ruins. You can drive between them so it's not too tiring and I would bring a hat and umbrella as you are very exposed on a hot day.

If you don't look further you'll be like everybody here and can only say: "great ruins, spectacular view" and "you can even enter the temples". Selinunte is so much more than that. It's not just an acropolis with a collection of temples at a beautiful...More

The site is a very good example of the joining of Greek & Phoenician culture. There is a large Doric Temple which is wonderful to look at. (Temple E) There are also the remains of the town to look at. These are very interesting. There...More

We loved visiting Selinunte (drove 90 minutes each way from Trapani to get there). The ruins are so extensive and interesting, and they allow visitors to walk into the temples (unlike Segesta and the Valley of the Temples). The site is lovely, too, with spectacular...More

We traveled here from Agrigento on the way to Palermo. It took about 80 minutes and was well worth the trip. The temples are situated in two locations and you can walk all around and explore. Good shoes are necessary. Not as touristy as the...More

The temples are impressive and look great against the background of the sea. One of the temples is inteally good state and gives a good idea of the ancient atmosphere.
