We didn't have the opportunity to watch any dramas here, but the place itself offers a view into the past. Not just the theater, but also other ruins around, almost each from different time in the past. Good opportunity to think about cultural and civilization changes through time. We walked uphill, but there is also affordable ride available. The walk... More

Well worth viewing the seating and orchestra of the theatre with the outlines of parados and skene. Not so grand as Epidaurus, this location features the combination of sky and surroundings and suggests and time when drama was an essential of culture.

I only wish I could have attended a production — I understand that during July and August Greek and Roman comedies and tragedies are presented in Italian starting at Sunset — but my daytime visit to the theater in September is something I will always remember. Part of the Segesta archeological park, which includes a hauntingly beautiful unfinished Doric theater... More

This is part of the Segesta park. Very finely preserved and worth the walk to and around the arena. Highly recommended

The view from the teatro was beautiful. It is worth the walk. Do not forget to take spare water, there are no services on the top.

we thought we were in Greece! Gorgeous view from the top of the mountain. From this location you can take a navette bus, to the temple, but we did it by foot, so we could enjoy more of the nice view.

Wow! This landmark is so well preserved and it's amazing to think of what went on in the amphitheater so long ago. We saw it at the same time as we saw the temple and it was a very hot day so we were literally melting. It didn't ruin this amazing landmark though. A great place to visit.

If you travel to the top of the hill when you visit, walk down beyond some of the ruins to see this amphitheater.

The Teatro at Segesta is not to be missed! You have the option to take the bus up the steep road or walk on parralel trails. I recommend the trails, both for the photo ops & to earn the gelato when you return!
