  • It's really a bit of searching to the parking lot and entrance of the site. A few large plates would be welcome. The site is very large and pretty impressive. Information is available but scarce.

  • the remains are awesome! are certainly worth the trip ... pity the poor organization, no guide, even a booklet available and very little maintenance. The place is unique, for art and views and deserves more respect and caring, however there is no supervision, free to walk over the remains ... We went around with the electric train for the complete tour and the driver was really nice, gave explanations as a guide. Kids love it!

  • When I found myself in front of the wonders preserved in this park ... I cried tears of joy! Just fabulous ... Immense ... Great ... Don't miss this magical place ... Go and sit in the House of the gods! Stops your eyes on huge columns and designed with heart and soul to the precious and inestimable value of these lands!

  • Awesome Park with lots of Greek history in italy. To reach some archaeological sites is better to move with a car. Pay attention to the sun if you will visit it during the summer.
  • Vast open park with well-annotated signage in multiple languages. There is parking in different parts of the park so to save energy in the heat of the day one can drive to different points. There are picnic benches in the shade near the Acropolis. The toilets are pretty smelly but clean.
  • A great leap into the past. The two biggest temples are ruins, the smallest one still stand and can even be entered. Well worth a visit.
  • Very big area which is open for you to explore. You can see the reconstructed temples as well as fallen ones. From everywhere you have a nice view. I liked it more then the one in Segesta.
  • Amazing place nothing to say about it and its history. Very well advised to everyone. Giving one star just because it's a massive SHAME to have bathrooms that are horrible..no lights extremely dirty and no care whatsoever. I was here exactly one year ago and it just got worse. Shame on you Selinunte, Sicily and Italy.
