SELINUNTE is one of the most evocative places in Sicily, also one of the most impressive of all Greek sites, never having been built over in modern times. In the 5th Century BC it was second only to Syracuse. The archeological site includes several temples, part of the ancient city, amazing ruins more than 2600 years old and a beautiful landscape. SEGESTA, according to the traditional legend, had a Trojan origin. It is located on the isolated hill called Barbaro, which offers a great panorama. The well preserved temple and the greek theater were built in the late 5th century BC open onto a breathtaking panorama.
Western Sicily holds its own against the fashionable destinations of the east coast—Agrigento, Etna, and Catania—but with fewer public transportation options. This tour takes you to off the beaten track gems while saving you the trouble of planning bus rides or car rentals. You’ll take a ferry to the island-ruins of a Phoenician colony, visit a Satyr Museum, and taste Marsala wine. Please note that the price of the ferry to Mothia and the admission ticket to the Satyr Museum is not included in the price of this tour.
