Private Tour of Paestum Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01643
  • Type : Private
  • Duration : 6.0 Hours
  • Meeting Place : Your Hotel

Description

South of the Amalfi Coast, lies the town of Paestum, home to the oldest Greek temples in mainland Italy and one of Campania's many UNESCO listed sites.

In the morning, a driver will meet you at your hotel to drive you to Paestum (pricing may vary slightly depending on hotel location), where your private guide will be waiting to meet you.

Paestum is a fascinating site, founded by Greek colonists who dedicated it to the sea god Poseidon, in around 600BC.  You will be amazed by the sheer size of the temples, which are like nothing you have seen in Pompeii and Herculaneum.

The earliest of the three temples dates to around 560BC.  Over the years the temples have been identified with different gods and you will learn why it has been so difficult for scholars, though they are all believed to have been built in honor of female deities. 

The temples are not the only ruins of ancient Poseidonia remaining.  Your guide will show you signs of the Greek settlers in the altars and the agora, while the later Roman inhabitants made their mark with the amphitheater and grand houses.

Finally you will visit the museum that houses many of the finds from the site and some wonderful tomb paintings, including the delightful Tomb of the Diver.

At the end of your visit, you may want to stop for lunch in town, before heading back to your hotel.

Client Testimonials

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
