Selinunte Guide

In the historical region of Sicily lies the city of Selinunte. It was founded in the seventh century BC but was destroyed in 409 BC when its citizens were at engaged in the war between Syracuse and Athens. Left behind were ruins of many temples, among them Temple G which was the fourth largest Greek temple in the world. The citadel of the city, its acropolis, was set on high ground between two rivers that surrounded the city. From the top of the acropolis, one can look out over the ocean and view many of the same sights that an ancient Sicilian Greek could see.

If you are looking to see the main ruins in this area, it would be best to hire a car and explore this vicinity at your leisure. All the Temples are known by the letters A-G and you will be able to see some that lie completely in ruins and some that have been partially rebuilt. The temples were erected to the gods Apollo and Hera and other deities worshipped by the Greeks.

The Cava di Cusa is not very far from the temple ruins. This is the quarry from which the stone was moved in order to build the temples. The drive to the quarry is lined with columns that were partially carved and now abandoned as the city lies in ruins.

Located five kilometers from the ruins is the beautiful Hotel Paradise Beach Resort. Offering 248 rooms as well as golf and a private beach, this hotel offers access to Selinunte and the surrounding sites. The hotel offers cable/satellite TV, air conditioning, as well as many other in-room amenities. The restaurant serves a complimentary buffet breakfast each morning as well as buffet style dining or outdoor dining. In either capacity, there are selections of Sicilian and international menu items to tempt you palate.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
