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!

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.
