The temples at Selinunte didn’t compare to the ones at the valley of the temples. However, being able to walk inside the temple gave a whole different perspective of the size and magnitude of the temple itself and made the stop worthwhile.

The tour of ruins from bc are amazing. The thing people built without use of machinery is a wonder. The place is preserved nicely and we walked a lot but enjoyed every moment.

Amazing ruins with a beautiful backdrop. We enjoyed everything about our visit. Although spread out - the reasonably priced golf buggy’s provided even more enjoyment for our young clan on the return leg! Fantastic day had by all

The site is well worth a visit. The temple ruins and acropolis occupy a large area that is well pathed and signposted. What was built here centuries ago was quite amazing and the reconstruction work done on some parts highlights what it must have been...More

Another Greek city in Sicily that rivals what you'll see in Greece or Turkey. The site is huge. You will first come on to the Eastern Hill, with Temples E, F and G. From there it's about a 20 minute walk to the Acropolis, where...More

If you're in this part of Sicily, these ancient ruins are a must. Take the tourist golf buggy-like train and soak it all up. It's not cheap – 36 euros for two – but it has to be done. And when you've finished (a couple...More

Really enjoyed exploring the largest archeological site in Europe. With only 15% uncovered this site is a must see if you like history dating back to 600BC.
