Are you ready for a full day of ancient Greek immersion?  Our private shore excursion to Segesta, Selinunte & Trapani is an amazing adventure to two of Magna Grecia’s most important civilizations.

Features of this day trip to Segesta, Selinunte & Trapani from Trapani:

  • Pickup at the port (please refer to your confirmation for precise meeting instructions)
  • 40-min drive to Segesta in air-conditioned vehicle
  • Segesta & Selinunte: Important archeological site of ancient Greek civilizations
  • Trapani: Baroque churches, shopping, fish market
  • Dropoff at the ship


To reach the Archeological site of Segesta we’ll take a scenic drive through the interior of western Sicily.

The foundings of Segesta are sketchy.  Some say that refugees from Troy came here after the Trojan War (so we’re talking more than 1000 years before Christ).  For sure the ancient Greeks were here at some point, imparting their culture, as is most brilliantly seen in the Doric temple at Greek theatre of Segesta.

The temple, which is very stately and extremely well preserved, dates to the 5th Century BC but was probably never finished.  It’s location, with the green landscape around it, is truly enchanting.

An equally impressive part of the archeological site is the Greek amphitheater, where 4000 spectators could enjoy theatrical performances with beautiful views.  The amphitheater has amazing acoustics and is still used for summer performing arts events.


Covering more than 740 acres, Selinunte is the largest archeological park in Europe (really and truly!) and rivals anything to be found in Greece. 

Founded by the ancient Greeks in 650 BC, Selinunte was a thriving civilization for a couple of centuries until it was laid to waste by the Carthaginians (the ancient peoples of Northern Africa, where Tunisia is today) in 409 BC.  Today the ruins of this important Greek colony still tell the story of its glory through the remains of seven Doric temples, the fortifications of the Acropolis, ruins of residential and commercial buildings, an artisan’s area for the production of ceramics, and the Cave of Cusa quarry that furnished the stone for construction.

The Greeks knew how to choose a spot for their temples and cities, and Selinunte is no exception.  From the Acropolis, the highest point of the ancient city, you’ll get gorgeous views of the sea that may very well make you feel like a god or Homeric hero.


Across from the Egadi Islands, in a beautiful spot where the Tyhrennian Sea meets the Mediterranean lies Trapani.  Renowned for its fine seafood and Sicilian cuisine, it also contains some lovely Baroque structures as well as the usual assortment of architecture that tells Sicily’s story of ever-changing civilizations.

1. Is this tour private?

The tour is private just for your party; however, you can look for other travel companions to share the costs of the tour with.

2. Is the driver also a guide?

Our English-speaking drivers are NOT licensed guides. In order to provide you with the best-in-class service, our English-speaking driving guides have been trained to offer our clients a nice overview with information regarding the major highlights avoiding the expensive charges of hiring a private guide. Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our driving guides can comment and explain the sights only from inside the vehicle but are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. They are regularly licensed instead to chauffeur the public. We highly recommend that you never book with any touring company that does not make this clear.

3. Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?

No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.

4. Does this tour include lunch and admission fees to sites?

No tickets or lunch are included in the rate. Please contact our office for pricing and reservations.

5. Does it include a guide?

No guide is included either. Please contact our office for pricing and reservations.

6. What is the duration of the tour?

The duration of the tour is 7/9 hours, including pickup and drop off at the ship.

7. Is the itinerary flexible?

Our itineraries are completely flexible, and we will be happy to operate any changes to the original itinerary (within reason). Please contact our office with all the requests you may have so that we can better organize your day.

8. Do you guarantee the return to the ship on time?

In almost 30 years of business, we have never missed the ship that is why we have organized all itineraries to guarantee your return on time.

9. Is gratuity included in the price?

Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service. Tips are generally: 10% not bad 15 % great 20 % best tour in my life. Please report any abuse.
