Segesta, according to the traditional legend, had a Trojan origin. It is located on the isolated hill called Barbaro, which offers a great panorama, and washed by the river Crimiso, nearby Calatafimi. The well preserved temple and the greek theater were built in the late 5th century BC.

It's impossible not to visit Palermo: once a regal capital where peoples very different from one another mingled their cultures creating a particularly original fusion like the Arab-Norman-Byzantine style of its finest buildings. Palermo is a many faceted city, with as much an unmistakable as enigmatic identity, a combination of aristocratic magnificence and the colourful ways of the common people.

For up to 6 travelers

A Recent Review of this tour

Mimmo is the guide to have for custom touring in Sicily. Prompt, courteous, extremely knowledgeable and funny from my point of view. I booked a full day tour of Selinuite, Segesta and Erice. Covered all the bases plus lunch in a quaint, off the beaten path bakery/deli to sample some "authentic" Sicilian food with great cannolis. Highly recommend!
