  • This unique spot is where Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman cultures mixed together and can be seen on a day trip from Naples
  • See three great Ancient Greek temples: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Neptune, and the Temple of Ceres
  • Visit the Roman amphitheater, an early Christian church, and the Paestum Museum, home to a wealth of information about the local sites

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.

Highlight of our trip. Spent a fantastic morning wandering through the ancient ruins and were in awe of the beautiful temples. Museum is so accessible and certainly gave real sense of the era.
Had lovely pizza and glass of wine for lunch in the sunshine afterwards.

What a find! We knew about Pompeii but not about Paestum. Definitely worth a visit.

Paestum has a wealth of archaeological remains. Worth the round trip from Naples or Sorrento.

Paestum is a marvellous place. The Greek and Roman ruins are well preserved, the park is organised and the museum has a very interesting collection. It is definitely a place worth visiting.

This museum park was amazing, the scale and size of the buildings left you with a sense of awe. What an amazing sight to behold as you enter this park.
The only down side to the experience was-the organisation of entrance to the park. Lots of people park in the car parks at the exit end to the site! The entrance is at the other end of the road well away from the car parks this was confusing lots of people. the man on the gate was grumpy and unhelpful, even the Italian people visiting the park did not understand what he was trying to tell them. Either the entrance and exits need changing around or they need to be clearly signposted and explained in writing on the wall !!!

If you want to see beautiful history as it is being revealed within this archeological site, it's Paestum. We did not have enough time to spend in the Paestum Museum, and I strongly suggest you visit at least 2 hours in the Museum. Also, we hired a guide who made the experience very meaningful. Wonderful and a must see!
