See the Greek temples of Paestum and its ruins, visit a typical farm and taste the buffalo mozzarella.
Our professional chauffeur will pick you up at your hotel and will drive you to Paestum. The name “Paestum” derives from Poseidonia (name given by the Greeks in honor of Poseidon) and the archaeological site was declared a World Heritage Site in 1998.
Among the main Hellenic architectural constructions, you can admire the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Poseidon and the Temple of Athena (today it is still in excellent conditions). The Amphitheatre, the forum and the gymnasium were built during the Roman period, and today their ruins are still visible.
After the visit of the archaeological park, your tour continues with the visit to one of the typical farms of the area.
