The history of Selinunte is filled with drama, blood and tragedy. But some of the old greek monuments still appear (almost) as ancient times. It is a beutiful site, both geografical and social. The atmosphere is magic. Recommanded!!!

Preferred the more out of the way site of Selinunte (and Segesta) to the valley of the temples. Not many people there when we visited in March and was considerably more atmospheric than Agrigento which was crowded. V well preserved and well worth a visit.

We took advantage of the electric carts to avoid some walking as there is plenty of trekking to do inside the archeological park itself. After inspecting the temple we clambered over the nearby ruins and enormous blocks of columns to our heart's content. Picturesque and...More

Our group left Agrigento and went to Selinunte. This was an impressive location but the temple was not as well preserved. It is definitely worth the visit and the surrounding locations as beautiful. This is another must see place if you are on the south...More
