It is impossible not to be moved by the majesty of the Paestum temples which remain preserved perfectly intact today.

An expert tour guide will show you the best of the ancient site, explaining everything you behold. Then you’ll have the chance to gaze upon some exquisite artifacts exhibited in the adjacent museum.
