About: 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!

Pompeii was lost to us for many centuries until it was rediscovered again, initially in 1599, and properly in the 1700s. It is one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. The volcanic eruption wiped out the population of Pompeii, but the town they lived in was remarkably well-preserved because of the combination of ash and lack of moisture that sealed the town, and essentially turned it into a time capsule.

Mount Vesuvius is a famous volcano which completely buried the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD. Visitors can walk the scenic slopes, learn about the volcano's history, and get incredible views of the Gulf of Naples. Vesuvius is easy to reach by bus from both Naples and Pompeii.

If you're in Cilento, it's worth your time to explore the spectacle of the Cape Palinuro Caves. Along with countless grottoes – including the famous Blue Grotto, whose deep blue waters leave the guests lucky enough to see it enchanted; Grotta Argento; the Cave of blood; and the Cave of the Bones – the stretch of coastline is also proud to boast some of Italy's most beautiful bays and beaches.

Step into life before the Vesuvius eruption with a visit to Herculaneum (Ercolano in Italian). This ancient Roman town lies in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius, and was once wealthier than Pompeii. Both towns were destroyed by volcanic flows in 79 AD. Pompeii is well-preserved but Herculaneum is even more so - the eruption preserved doors, bedding and even food here. This UNESCO World Heritage site allows you to explore several villas and taverns and examine the mosaics and frescoes preserved for centuries by the volcanic water, ash and debris.
