Paestum is one of the most beautiful ancient cities of Great Greece (Magna Graecia)!
2600 year-old foundation, full of history and myths.

It is an unparalleled archaeological site:
  • • its three imposing Doric temples, among the best preserved ones between Greece and the western colonies;
  • • the Tomb of the Diver, the unique example of its kind in the world;
  • • the bronze vases of the so-called Heroon (cenotaph of the city founder), extraordinary in their elegance;
  • • some metopes of the Heraion (Hera sanctuary) with their archaic, fascinating reliefs;
  • • ancient tombs, whose slabs are painted with original frescoes and the well-preserved grave goods, both symbols of the wealthy Lucanian society.

There is much more than this! You are expected to see all these wonderful things with us!
