Full description
You can't miss Paestum on your tour of Italy. With this tour, you will jump into the past and discover a UNESCO World Heritage site. The archaeological site at Paestum will cover a large area and take as much as 2-hours to explore thoroughly. A street runs along the railings outside the site and here, in the middle of surprisingly rural surroundings, you'll find a busy little row of souvenir shops. Paestum, also known by its original Greek name as Poseidonia, was a Greek colony founded on the west coast of Italy. Prospering as a trade center, it was conquered first by the Lucanians and then, with the new Latin name of Paestum, the city became an important Roman colony. The ruins of Paestum are famous for its three magnificent Greek temples in the Doric order dating from about 600 to 450 B.C., which are in a good state of preservation and the best examples of ancient Greek architecture. The archaeological area covers the heart of the ancient city. See the three Doric temples. Paestum is not all about temples, though. The extensive area which is open to the public includes civic buildings, the Roman Forum and amphitheatre, paved roadways and ruins of residential buildings. The city walls and amphitheatre are largely intact, and the bottom of the walls of many other structures remain, as well as paved roads. Here, you will have also great views. Relax and take pictures of this unforgettable experience. The museum will be just opposite the archaeological site. Here, you will see some paintings and grave goods from tombs in and around Paestum. You will have the chance to see the most famous of these is the fresco from the Tomb of the Diver.
