Not as well known or busy as Pompei, this site has standing temples that are dated to 500 - 600 BC. You can walk among the foundation ruins of houses and still see intact mosaic flooring as well as the temples. Truly impressive when you...More

Paestum is a short train journey from Salerno, with a walk of about 10 to 15 minutes to the site. My advice would be to see both the archaeological park and the museum if you have time. We visited the temples first and they are...More
