There are many websites that describe in detail the history of Segesta; here we prefer to focus on our tips for visiting the area.
Car park: there is a big free perking area available. It could be possible to find there some peaceful wild dog, so be careful if you are scared of them.
Ticket: the weak point. Fare is 6 euros, 3 euros reduced price. Under 18 and over 65 can enter for free. At the ticket office there were'n available maps or guides, we were forced to buy a silly map at the souvenir shop, this is unacceptable. Next to Porta di Valle there is a bus that you can take to get the Agorà, but no one give you any advice about this. The employee in the ticket office was bored, people chatted in listless gatehouse, other employees were talking listless... the worse image of Sicily.
Walkway: it is possible to use to bus to get the Agorà, on the upper side of the area. We did all the path on foot, browsing through the ruines:
- Back to entrance area and
- Back to car park area, end of the visit.
Along the way is possible to admire looking at the .
If you want to walk through all the path, you'll face a 5km length path with 200 meters difference in height path. Using the bus you can save most of the effort.
