Description

One of the most famous archaeological parks in Sicily is the one in Segesta, an ancient city founded by the Elymians (a Greek population escaping from Troy, the legend says) where an incredibly well-preserved Doric temple (built about 2500 years ago) and a stunning amphitheatre can be visited nowadays.

The site is set among verdant hills with typical Mediterranean shrub, and the whole area is very quiet and intimate.

The first thing to visit is the Temple: such an ancient building, yet so extraordinarily well preserved!
The amphitheatre is the main sight of the whole acropolis, set on a hilltop that can be both reached by feet or by shuttle service running every 30 minutes. If your holiday is planned in July or August, don’t forget to check for the annual theatre festival that takes place in the ancient amphitheatre: an absolutely unique setting for a play!
