Great monument, awful staff
Oct 2020 • Couples
The temple and amphitheater, are both amazing in their preservation and settings. The views from both are spectacular. The ticket is €6, so definitely worth it. There is quite a bit of walking to do so be aware of this but it really is worthwhile.
Try to ignore the terribly rude staff at the gate or at the ticket booth and desk. They do not want to provide any information and very obviously have not been trained for visitors interaction. It is very clear that visitors are an annoyance to them, but for that reason now it think it’s also worth going and make sure you ask them at least one question too about the monuments or where to park. They hate it!
Anyway, maybe if a managers read this they’ll get some training courses in place for them.
So definitely worth the visit and so close to the motorway too, you can’t miss it.

Pay for the shuttle bus!!!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We visited today and as you’ll read from the reviews you need to pay for the car park then entrance so when they said we’d have to pay to use the bus to the theatre we decided to give it a miss and walk it which it said was 1250metres but it’s MUCH longer. Don’t do it! Our biggest regret was not paying for the bus. On route we had: a snake cross our path, a wild cat jump over the wall beside us, almost hit by the buses going up and down the hill, sun burnt and sweaty. Really don’t risk it if you’ve children with you. Pay the shuttle fare

Great archeological site with a Greek temple and a Greek theater
Oct 2019
This well preserved temple is only a short walk uphill from the parking lot and only an hour drive from the Palermo airport. The Greek theater is amazingly well preserved and impressive. Take the bus to the theater because it is a long, hot walk uphill.

Small but idyllic temple
Sep 2019 • Couples
While in Sicily we visited 3 “Greek” temple complexes. This was the smallest, but certainly the most tranquil. Without throngs of other tourists, we were able to appreciate the beauty of the temple and the surrounding countryside.

If you are driving there, please remember on leaving the highway to follow the “Park & Ride” signs to the right, and do not drive up the hill to the temple. The guards will just direct you back down the hill to the parking area. The shop in the parking area the shop has just the best gelato.

Temple of Segesta
Sep 2019 • Couples
Don’t mind the reviews about parking issues. There is a well organised car park with shuttle buses, which cost 5euros for 2 people. (Payment for temple is separate)
The shuttle bus drops you at the base of the short climb up to the temple...
Both at the car park and drop off point there are great shops and cafe areas..
The temple itself is a must see, breathe taking in its size and construction

Hidden gems
Jul 2019 • Couples
Under half an hour from where we were staying (Sirignano Agriturismo - separate review), were the amazing temple & amphitheatre ruins. Actually both quite in tact and sitting apart on this beautiful location in the Sicilian hills to the East.
Follow the signs for Parking - everyone has to park in the public parking area, pay the fee then get the shuttle bus to the attractions. An additional bus can be caught for a small additional fee up to the amphitheatre, the temple is closer. Refreshments & WCs at both the car park and the venue.
Wonderful spectacles both.

Lots to see
May 2019 • Friends
Interesting ruins, you get a ticket at the parking lot to take a shuttle to the temple and then another shuttle to take you to the theater. Overall, very interesting and worthwhile. There is a gift store, restrooms, and a small cafe which had decent food and gelato. Lots of walking, it could be pretty hot in the summer. Gorgeous views of the countryside.

Beautiful setting
Jun 2019 • Couples
The temple sits on a hill. Speactacular views all around You have to leave your car and take their shuttle bus. Then, to get to the amphitheater, you have to walk or take another bus. We took their shuttle up and walked down which was beautiful but if you’re looking to do your steps.... The weather was gorgeous, but you definitely need a hat and sunscreen! It was not crowded at all as this is a smaller tourist site, but totally worth it. Combine with Erice for a perfect sightseeing day.

Amazing site
May 2019 • Couples
We have probably visited all the archaeological sites in Sicily. Aggregento is obviously one of the biggest. Sellinunte is also amazing but there is limited information about the sites. Segesta is a great site as the ruins are beautiful but there is also alot of information on the sites, you can get water and there are alot of toilets. The view over to the sea is stunning.
Even though there were lots of other tourists we found it easy to see the theatre or temple with no other people there.

It's good, but there are other better places
May 2019 • Solo
There are 2 main sights at the archeological park in Segesta: a never-completed Greek (Phoenician?) temple and an amphitheater. By itself, the park is good because it nestles in a somewhat remote, rather scenic valley, it is of modest size, and both structures are in good shape. It affords visitors a more unhurried pace to explore the park on foot. And it is a good thing too, as the 2 sights are located on opposite sides of a shallow valley. One can also take the shuttle bus to alleviate the walking up and down the hill.
But its positives should not be overstated as there are places which are more convenient to get to, are more likely to be on a tourist's travel route, and/or consist of larger collections of impressive ancient structures or the structure is simply more impressive. I am, of course, talking about the outstanding temples at archeological parks in Agrigento and Selinunte and the dramatic amphitheater in Taormina. These are well-known and well-traveled tourists spots. So it may not be necessary to go to Segesta after having visited those other sights.
