We arrived at Segesta by mid afternoon. A cappuccino stop at a gas station where several local men were hanging out, helped us find the site because one of the men offered to drive ahead of us. How kind! It had nothing to do with being a blonde tourist "sono di Canada."
This time, instead of walking to the theatre site, we took the bus, to find an ancient theatre with the most spectacular backdrop view. (No whining from Deb today since we bought the bus ticket). The condition of the site was unbelievable and sitting there in one of the seats, was utterly breathtaking. Apparently they still do performances at this site. That would be incredible, in such an already dramatic setting.
Also at this site was an incredibly intact temple set on the hilltop, with steep and dangerous ravines around it. Hard to imagine and fully grasp the construction efforts and living history of this place.
