  • A trio of some of best preserved Greek temples (pre-Roman) in the world. Is it worth visiting? A resounding yes. Best way to get there is by train from Naples (fastest train is about 1h each way). Train station is an easy walk from the ruins. The museum is also interesting , a magnificent collection of funerary frescoes that are worth seeing.
  • Fantastic location, with three standing temples built by the Greeks. It makes you feel as if you were in a 2000 year old Roman city. Excellent free audio guide. Less crowded than other archeological parks like Pompeii. We did not know of Paestum and it was a great discovery.
