Selinunte is definitely a must-see location in Western Sicily. The ruins of this ancient city overlook the Mediterranean and there are many temples to explore. The combination of the bleached marble columns, the bright blue sea and the colorful wildflowers is breathtaking. The only downside is that the temples that you see are reconstructions as the whole city was completely devestated. After sightseeing, head down to the beach below for some swimming and sunbathing--Selinunte is also one of the best beach sites in Sicily.

An absolutely gorgeous, very well preserved greco-roman temple overlooking the sea. You will be transported to another world as you wander through the gigantic columns and feel the Sicilian breeze on your face, especially if you go at sunset.

This ancient Greek archeological site is really impressive, a must see in Sicily. Ther are five temples of which only one has been teconstructed, temple E. the ruins of temple G are so impressive. The pieces of columns left are so broad and large, I cannot imagine how big and impressive it could have been. The atmosphere here is really magic, a piece of ancient Greece in contemporary Sicily. It is one of the largest archeological sites in Europe. The fantastic sights of the emples are mixed withthe typical aromatic scent of Sicily at summertime, under a burning sun.
