Description

Not many tourists know about Paestum, making it a true hidden gem. Founded by Ancient Greeks, the site hosts three amazing ancient Greek temples - the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Neptune and the Temple of Ceres, plus a fascinating museum. It also features Ancient Roman elements, making it a complex and fascinating spot for a day or half-day trip.

Paestum was once known as Poseidonia, in honor of the Greek god Poseidon. A trip to this spot is a unique window into both Greek and Roman history.

Founded as a Greek colony in the 6th century BC, Paestum was then taken over by the Romans in 273BC. It fell into a state of decline in early medieval times and was eventually abandoned. It was rediscovered in the 18th century ("oh, look: a city!").

The best way to experience Paestum is to visit the museum first. That way you'll get a deeper understanding of the site, its mighty temples, and what it all means. Afterward, roam its Greek temples, Roman amphitheater, and the rest of the archaeological site.

Run your hands along the stone and imagine what once took place inside these buildings. As a bonus, Paestum is often less crowded than better-known sites like Pompeii.
