Paestum

Paestum is located south of Naples and is easy to reach with public transport, making for a great day (or half-day) trip from Naples. This Greco-Roman archaeological site is home to the remains of three ancient Greek temples and a museum.

Founded as a Greek colony in the 6th century BC, Paestum still has defensive walls, a Roman forum, what's left of a Roman amphitheater and a collection of ancient tombs, all of which can be explored at your leisure!

Paestum: Archaeological Park + Museum
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.

Paestum: Archaeological Park + Museum
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 !!!

Paestum: Archaeological Park + Museum
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!
