Paestum: Small-Group Tour with an Archaeologist and Tickets

Highlights

  • Enjoy a walking tour through the ruins of Paestum
  • Admire the three Greek temples
  • Visit the Archeological Museum and the Diver's Tomb

Description

Explore the ruins of the wonderful site of Paestum including its three amazing Doric temples, the amphitheater, the forum and the markets. After the ruins, you’ll visit the National Archeological Museum where some of the most beautiful artworks of the Magna Greece are displayed. Paestum is one of the precious archaeological pearls of Italy, located in the northern part of the Cilento region, not far from the river Sele, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The town was founded by the Greeks colonists under the name of Poseidonia which became the most popular city of the Magna Graecia. Explore the archaeological site of Paestum, the best preserved Graeco-Roman city, with a certified archaeologist guide during a 2-hour walking tour. Admire the three Greek temples dating back to the 6th century B.C.: the Temple of Neptune, Temple of Ceres and basilica, similar to the Parthenon in Athens (nowhere else will you find such tall, elegant and well-preserved Greek temples.).  See the city walls and the Roman ruins: the comitium (political assembly hall), the amphitheater and much more. Then, visit the fascinating National Archaeological Museum, which has a rich collection of local Greek artworks from the 7th century B.C. The undisputed highlights of the museum in Paestum are the frescoes of the Tomb of the Diver and the red figured krater of Asteas.
