Visit of Segesta, the city of the myth

The city of the myth with the Greek culture as the protagonist. Visit the archaeological park of Segesta with the temple, the theater and the colors of the Mediterranean vegetation burnt by the sun.

A journey through the Sicilian history with a guided visit of the archaeological park of Segesta, home to remains of Greek history with the theater and the Doric temple, the best preserved in Italy, and medieval remains of the castle and the walls.

Segesta, lies in solitude on Mount Barbaro, halfway between Palermo and Marsala, is an ancient city founded in 580 BC by the Elimi, a community who fled from Troy.
Segesta was strongly linked to the Greek culture and became one of the most important centers of the Mediterranean; warrior and florid city as evidenced by the greatness of its remains.

It is surrounded by woods, valleys, and canyons of wild beauty, making up a unique cultural space with a perfect scenography.
On the mountain arose the theater, partly excavated in the rock, that accommodated up to 4,000 people. Here the stage is the rugged land, the view of the horizon and the sea.

Not far, the temple of Segesta appears impressive with its 36 columns, an aura of mystery surrounds the use of this structure, we call it "temple", but perhaps it has never been used to pray gods...
