Paestum

The ancient Greco-Roman city of Paestum was first settled by Greek colonists in the 6th century BC. It was later occupied by Lucanians, Romans and Christians. Malarial swamps led to the abandonment of the city in the 9th century AD, but also helped preserve the ancient city's finest artefacts. Today, Paestum boasts three well-preserved Doric Greek temples, ruins of ancient houses and a museum of Greek artefacts. 2,500 years after they were first built, the temples of Ceres, Neptune and Hera are relatively intact and are some of the best-preserved temples of their age found anywhere in the world. The fascinating Paestum Museum has sculptures, tomb paintings and many more items and displays, all of which have been found on site.

“A wonderful holiday with a varied itinerary that included history, spectacular scenery and sunny beaches. Rail travel was smooth and easy and we had some wonderful meals. The hotel in Sorrento was great but its breakfast coffee was best avoided - appalling for Italy - but that was the only poor aspect of a really good time. Tour manager was wonderful.
