General

In the middle of Segesta’s lands, the mountain Pispica overlooks the entire archeological site of the namesake city, a mixed conifer and oak woodlands with essences of Mediterranean scrub that emanates his fragrances in the air. Rich and varied Fauna includes the kestrel, the buzzard and the quick peregrine hawk that often fly up in the sky above the landscape. And among these beautiful species, you can also find different types of butterfly, for example the swallowtail.
From mountain Pispisa you can enjoy the unique view that ranges from Egadi Island to the gulf of Castellammare with its beautiful Mountain Inici and the Segesta’s lands.
Along the way, among the ruins, stand the memorial monument “Pianto Romano” and a remarkably preserved temple, the Temple of Segesta, visible from different viewpoints and heights.
Paths are immersed in nature and excursions are not particularly demanding. While riding a quad into woods and vineyard, it’s possible, for those who like it, to take a break in some farm holidays and wine cellar and to taste typical products and wines.
Besides, depending on seasonal periods, you can savor some fruits directly picked up from the tree such as watermelons, tomatoes, melons, figs, prickly pear and mulberries.

The tour in quad, accompanied by guides, will lead visitors  to the wine cellars in the Calatafimi’s area and also will offer a final wines tasting.
This experience will leave you a precious reminder: the poetry of this beautiful view, the ancient and rural structures, the dry stone walls, the hidden barrel rooms in the wine cellars, the full-bodied wine you will taste and the friendliness, helpfulness and sympathy of Sicilian people you will met.

Trapani Segesta

Trapani Segesta

Segesta (Ancient Greek: Ἔγεστα Egesta;[1] Sicilian: Siggésta) was one of the major cities of the Elymian people, one of the three indigenous peoples of Sicily. The other major cities of the Elymians were Eryx and Entella.

It is located in the northwestern part of Sicily in Italy, near the modern comune of Calatafimi-Segesta in the province of Trapani.seg

The countryside leading up to the Segesta site is gorgeous especially in May when all the fields are in bloom with flowers and it’s not too hot. Worth taking the shuttle bus to the ampitheater…one of few left without modern seating added.

This temple is one of the most stunning sights I have seen! It dates back in the 4th century and noone knows why it was never finished. Not only the temple itself, but tbe surrounding nature is going to leave you speechless.
