Another archeological site not to be missed..... It's an awesome site.... But I should say that how it's managed and organized must be improved. There were no informations about the site. There was an "app" but you have to pay to download it.

This is another site which is awesome and not to be missed. You can walk around it or sit on one of those little train-like trucks that cart you around. Standing in the acropolis takes your breath away.

The site is laid out on 2 hills a good 20 minutes walk apart. Of the 3 temples on the eastern hill, only the Temple of Hera has been restored, and it is still the best restored of all of the city's temples. The so-called...More

We took our Danish visitors to Selinunte, having previously been with other guests to Agrigento and to Segesta. Of course, it's worth a visit and impressive. However, the temples are much more scattered in Selinunte and the signs are poor. They are also more degraded...More
