It took me more than FIFTY YEARS to visit. Learnt about it as an architectural student, dreamt about it ever since. For anyone who loves Greek architecture (and this is early Doric at its absolute best) there is nowhere else on earth in the same league. I visited during the Covid crisis so a few dozen of us had the place to ourselves. Wondered if there is anything negative to write about this place. There isn't! Wonderful beyond words . . . especially if you appreciate classical buildings at their best.

We drove it here from Naples, parking is available close to the entrance.
The temples were breath taking, grand and we'll preserved.
A one way in and out system, we bought tickets online but they weren't for a specific time slot or day.
We enjoyed wondering around following the marked out route, took about an hour. There were signs to explain the temples and other ruins.
The ticket also gets you access to the museum where lots of the finds from the ruins are preserved and definitely recommend going in, we spent around 45mins looking round. The staff kept saying 30mins to us when we entered so not sure if we spent longer than we should but were free to wonder round the marked route inside.
There are a few Cafe's between the ruins and museum for a lunch or ice cream stop.

I love ancient history and had of course visited Pompeii and Herculaneum - but I hadn't even heard of Pasteum before a holiday in Sorrento. Unable to hire a car and unwilling to pay the extortionate prices of organised trips, I was almost put off going by the tales of the journey involved (ie train from Sorrento to Naples then onto Pasteum then return: c. 7 hours in a train in total). However, it was absolutely worth the effort. I would tend to agree some of the other comments about poor signage and I was disappointed that an audiouguide didn't appear to be an option but I bought a 4€ guidebook from a nearby gift shop and that was all I really needed. The fown itself doesnt compare with it's two rather illustrious near neighbours - but then neither have those have a temple in extaordinary condition, let alone 3 of them! In fact, I would say the site is worth seeing for the Temple of Neptune alone. One cannot help but wonder at the ingenuity of the Roman's for having the ability to design and build a structure as wondrous as this some 2500 years ago. I'm marking down due to the afore mentioned lack of signage/info and audio guide - and the rather disinterested staff on reception who were more interested in continuing their conversation than admitting customers. As for the site itself though, amazing.

A short drive from Paestum is a huge site of the original city with three temples. Opposite is the museum and a small number of cafes and shops. The entry is a very reasonable €12 for an adult and €2 for under 25s. Whilst less emotive than the sites of Pompeii or Herculaneum and most of the specific finds are in the museum not in the site, it is still quite incredible to think the monuments are over 2000 years old. The guide app is good, more could be provided with images of finds, how do they know it was ah
Shop or the prison for example but still well worth a visit.

An impressive demonstration of pre-Roman history in Italy with 3 magnificent and surprisingly well preserved Greek temples and lots of other archaeological marvels
