Paestum

Paestum is a city located about 90 km south of Naples. The Greeks founded it in the 6th century A.C. and they referred to it as Poseidon’s city. Today, Paestum offers you the opportunity to admire some of the most well preserved Greek temples and archaeological sites world- wide as well as discovering the character of another beautiful southern city. If you fancy learning more about the history of Peastum, you can also visit the National Archaeological museum. Gastronomy never fails to appear as an aspect of our excursions as Italy prides itself in specialised local cuisine. Paestum, like Naples, is the producer of fresh buffalo mozzarella and ricotta as well as being famous for fresh artichokes and fruity olive oil. This excursion is ideal if you would like to opt for a destination a little less off the tourist trail.
