Add To Plan

It's about an hour's drive from Trapani to Selinunte and upon arriving you will discover the remains of a city founded by the Carthaginians in the mid-7th century BC. Visit the ruins of three impressive temples that once graced the site.

The first is Temple E, dating back to the 5th century BC and rebuilt in 1958. To the right stands Temple F, lying completely in ruins. Archaeologists believed that Temple G was dedicated to Apollo, and was among the largest of its type in the ancient world. Each of its columns weighed several tons. The remaining rubble gives some indication of its immense size. You will also explore the Acropolis, which was partially rebuilt in 1925. Then return to ship via the coastal route.
