Beautiful city beautiful view. For the temple and theater at segesta you pay 3 euros if you are younger than 25 and 6 euros otherwise. It is fine to walk to the top in 20 minutes, but if you have less mobility, there is also a bus that runs back and forth for 1.50 extra. I found the salt flats less interesting as the red water is beautiful.

Pleasant excursion to discover the archaeological site of Segeste and the beautiful town of Erice with a very good guide with exemplary conduct
