  • This unique area is where Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman cultures mixed together, and can be seen on a day trip from Naples
  • See Ancient Greek wonders at both Velia and Paestum; your ticket lasts three days and gives you access to both archaeological parks
  • 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 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.

Your ticket also lets you visit the archaeological park of Elea-Velia, with ruins dating back as far as the 6th century BC.

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.

At nearby Velia, you'll be able to walk amidst ancient city walls made from local limestone, and pass beneath the Porta Rosa, a gate from the 4th century BC.

We visited Paestum. The place was really nice and peaceful. Not a lot of people visiting. Tickets worked perfectly.
