“Overlooked in guide books- why?”
Review of Solunto

Attraction details
Reviewed 31 August 2012

While staying at the Domina home Zagarella we were looking for a less-than-taxing day trip and happened to find a small entry in a guide book on the Solunto ruins...not much info, but we gave it a go anyway. Basically, the ruins of a whole town are here and while many buildings are only outlines, there are some very interesting sites: elegant mosaics, columns, small amphitheatre, fresco of Zeus as a swan (Casa di Leda) and a small museum full of finds.

Avoid the heat of the day to explore and wander up the remains of a main street to the top of the site- the views encompass Santa Flavia and extend to Palermo the other direction!

We were the only visitors and we spent a few hours looking around, though it can be seen in less time.

Last piece of advice- take 'sensible' shoes, as some of the dried thorns and branches can pierce through flip-flops with ease!
