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.

What a fantastic site, a must for anyone interested in Greek history. The overall site of ruins measures 700m x 260m and contains three Greek temples in a remarkably good state of preservation. The areas between them have low ancient walls and old roads. Having spent a week in Naples this day trip out was a welcome break from all the noise and hubbub of those busy streets and the car horns. The site is very rural and the 1km stroll through open fields to the booking office was a joy in itself. There are a number of good eating establishments and a very interesting museum of artefacts from the site.

We are so happy to have explored this archeological park. After many trips to Italy, this was our first time to Paestum. It is a treasure for anyone looking for a unique site that is not crowded. Our pictures are amazing and no other tourists appear in any of them. The museum is definitely the place to start. Start upstairs and make your way downstairs before heading to the park. Tiqets was an easy way to keep our passes safe on the phone.
