The Greek temple and theatre complex in the archeological area in Segesta are on a hill just outside the site of the ancient city of Segesta. The unusually well preserved Greek Doric temple is thought to have been built in the 420's BC by an...More

In fact if it wasn't for the theatre having been restored in 2001, little would remain to indicate anything other than farmers huts were ever here. Fantastic views to be had and the theatre alone is worth the visit.

As we said in the review of the temple, this theatre is worth the trip. The entrance is one, with the silly three tickets. In any cas it is a splendid theatre and worth the trip. Please check our review on the Temple. These two...More

Not as big as valle di templi in Agrigento, but rather quiet and well kept. The Parking is 10€ including the busfare. There is an extra 1,5€ for a bus going up the hill to the theatre. Everything worked fine and was nice to visit.

This attraction is located high on the top of a hill, and requires a bus ticket/ride to the top. Be prepared to walk down, though, as the bus schedule is a little erratic. (Easy walk down, unless it's really hot.) The amphitheatre is well-preserved and...More

The area around here looks wonderful from the top of the theatre. The theatre itself is small by Greek standards, but not as small as most odeons. There is no evidence that walls were built round the seated area to allow animal fights in later...More

Perched high up overlooking the sea this is a wonderful Greek theatre in a glorious setting. There is a shuttle bus to take you up and bring you down. At the bottom, up a less steep hill, is a 5th century temple in a good...More

You cannot see the temple of Segesta and miss this gem. Would recommend tge bus up for 1,50 each though as the walk is quite steep. I was very impressed by the amphitheatre because of the way it has been renovated and most of all...More

What a wonderful, historic site occupying a spectacular and commanding viewpoint. They have done a wonderful preservation and restoration job here with a terrific back story and an example of the eclectic history of the island. The view is magnificent.
