The wonderful thing about this site is the ability to wander, often on your own, around this huge and complex archaeological site.
*if walking is not your thing, take advantage of the "train" that will take you to a couple of the main attractions. You may also want to take advantage of this motorized transport if you're trying to maximize your time.
*there are washrooms on the Acropolis near Temples O/A. Don't expect to find much in terms of food and drink (other than maybe some flavoured ices/granite) so make sure to bring your own if you are going to spend time here.
*not everyone will enjoy the more remote locations (e.g., the necropolis, the Malaphoros shrine, etc.) but we loved the fact that we were virtually alone and could pretend to be explorers.
*check to see if there are evening concerts at the site and take advantage! Among other things, you will end up seeing the ruins in the evening light. If there is no concert, stay until closing to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and the evening "glow".
*pop into the Museo Civico in the near-by town of Castelvetrano to learn more about Selinunte and to see the "Efebo of Selinunte", one of the few bronze Greek statues that still exist.
*read up about the site before you go. There are some good interpretive panels in different places but a number are also fairly weather beaten.
