Paestum is one of the most significant and precious archaeological sites in Italy, a gem of our cultural heritage.
A tour of this precious town will allow you to live an overwhelming experience. Legend attributes its buildings to the "Argonauts" of Greek mythology: a people of Greek origin, coming from Sybaris, who founded Paestum in the 6th century BC. The city, originally called Poseidonia because of Poseidon, god of the sea, soon became one of the most prosperous cities in the Mediterranean. Its decline came, however, with the fall of the Roman Empire.
Paestum is one of the most beautiful archaeological sites in Italy, a true gem of our cultural heritage well known for its spectacular Doric temples. One of the most important symbols of this area are, in fact, the Doric temples such as the Temple of Neptune, the Basilica and the Temple of Ceres, famous all over the world.
It is therefore recommended the addition of an archaeological guide for a more in-depth tour, which will allow you to better discover the beauty of Paestum. The tour starts from Naples and the duration of the trip will be about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Once there, our driver will assist you with the purchase of entrance tickets. Not far from the Doric temples you will also find the archaeological museum of Paestum, one of the richest archaeological collections in Italy. Your tour can therefore be enriched and include a visit to the numerous artefacts as well as frescoes, which retrace the 3 main phases of Paestum's history: the prehistoric phase, the phase of transition from Poseidonia to Paestum and the phase of decline with the advent of the Romans! For lovers of history and archaeology, then, Greek temples of Paestum private tour is the right choice for a fantastic experience!
