Project Description

Selinunte and its temples, in Sicily

An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Sicily or from the main stations, airports or ports to Selinunte, one of the largest archaeological parks in Europe. Here, you can admire ruins of numerous ancient Greek temples and the remains of the first minted coins from 550 BC.

Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed ad hoc to make you discover “The City of Gods”, as the travelers of the eighteenth century called it, enchanted by the grandeur of the ruins and their position among the surrounding hills and the Tyrrenian Sea of the southwestern coast of Sicily. The city, built in the seventh century BC, owes its name to an herb, wild parsley, in Greek “sèlinon”. You will experience the sensation of staying while surrounded by temples, walls, aqueducts, roads, necropolises and small houses where the inhabitants used to live.

Then you will visit the Soap Museum in Sciacca, where technology and tradition meet to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This museum is dedicated to the history and science of soap: inside you will have the opportunity to explore the processes underlying the production of soap, which you will then replicate and create an olive-oil bar of soap in the laboratory to take home with you. A pleasant brunch will follow under the olive trees, where you can relax with a glass of wine and a tasting of local products.
