I think this site has a lot of things going for it, but it also has some pretty big things working against it. The theater is especially interesting because of the construction materials; it is made of the same type of rock as the Scala...More

We went on the first Sunday of December. We were the only visitors there that day. On the first Sunday of the month there is no charge for the museum and excavations. The museum is small. Most artifacts found on the site appear to have...More

Wonderfull place, good energy, wonderful views, nice walk, poor maintenance of info tables, focus on weather protection of the ruins (almost everything is covered), info table messages not attractive for "normal" users, poor toilets.

The sandstone arena has encountered a great deal of erosion, so it is covered for preservation and restoration. Compared to the other major sites at Segesta and Senuste, this is a bit disappointing.

A very interesting place to spend an hour. There is a good little museum, an amazing amphitheatre and a great insight as to where the people lived. Well worth a visit.

The very small museum is nice because of its exhibition of the pottery. The theater has a cover, not nice but functional. The site was kept till 2006, and after that there is not very much money spend on the outside area. Not worth a...More

Unfortunately, the main attraction of this place, the ancient greek theatre (or something like that) is practically impossible to see... I know they want to protect it, but it's too bad they continue to display images of the theatre and the sea in publicities... Looked...More

The site is very small, but has an interesting museum on the site with pottery found on the site, but it was small. Not much to actually see and quite a confusing lay out. Not worth a special trip.
