Paestum Excursion

We'll pick you up at your hotel in Ascea and hit the road to the city of Paestum, declared a World Heritage Site in 1988. Ready to begin an exciting journey into the past?

Once we arrive, we'll start exploring the archaeological site of this ancient city of Magna Graecia, founded around 600 BC with the name of Poseidonia, in honor of the god of the sea. The city was then occupied by the Lucanians, who came to call it Paistom, until it became a Roman colony and took the name of Paestum

Here, we'll visit the Doric temples of Hera I, Hera II and Athena, while the guide tells us about the characteristics of each of these buildings, standing majestically against the green background of the plain... A perfect postcard image! 

Then, we'll enter the park's museum, where we'll have the opportunity to learn about the artifacts found during the excavations carried out to bring this ancient Greek colony to light. This is a vast collection of great historical and artistic value, including vases, weapons and grave goods from the Greek and Lucanian necropolis.

Among the museum's treasures, the most outstanding are the marvelous frescoes of the Tomb of the Diver, in which we see a man about to dive into the waves of the sea, a clear metaphor for the passage from earthly life to the afterlife... A unique painting that will leave you speechless!

We'll end our excursion to Paestum after four hours, taking you back to Ascea, where arrival at your hotel is scheduled for 7 pm.
