In the footsteps of the Ancient Greeks

A Greek colony founded around 650 B.C.E., Selinunte flourished in the 5th century B.C.E. when the great temples were built and the urban centre expanded. The city was destroyed by the Carthaginians in 409 B.C.E. On this tour, we explore this fascinating site, which was excavated systematically in the second decade of the 19th century, then visit Mazara del Vallo’s Sant’Egidio in the afternoon, which displays one of the most important Italian archaeological finds of the last 20 years: a stunning bronze dancing Satyr in a moment of drunken ecstasy, and dated to the 4th century BCE.
