Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum) Tours and Activities

star-5
23 Reviews

From Rome’s Coliseum to the mighty city of Pompeii, Italy might be most famous for its Roman ruins, but the Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum) dates back even earlier. The ancient Greek city of Poseidonia was founded in 600 B.C. and conquered by the Romans in 273 B.C., when it became Paestum, and the impressively preserved ruins offer a unique glimpse into Italy’s Greco-Roman roots.

The most memorable remains of Paestum are a trio of remarkably preserved Greek Temples – the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Neptune and the Temple of Athena – while additional highlights include part of a Roman Forum and amphitheater, and the Heroon tomb. There’s also an archaeological museum on-site displaying a sizable collection of sculptures, paintings and artifacts, most notably the famous fresco from the 'Tomb of the Diver'.

Day Trip from Naples: Paestum and its temples - private tour

Paestum is a truly enchanting and atmospheric place, and a 'must' on any classical tour of Italy. Just south of the Sorrento peninsula and Amalfi Coast, and a mile inland, this is a haunting archaeological site where three Greek temples stand in the middle of the countryside. Paestum is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once called Poseidonia, the city was founded in the VII century BC by Greeks colonists from Sybaris and it would has probably occupied by a human settlement when they got there. It turned the name in Paestum once and for all when it was taken by Rome and continued to prosper until the mouth of river Salso started to be buried by sand and the whole place turned into a swamp.
