Surprising Paestum, we had no idea what an interesting place this turned out to be. Arguably the best preserved Greek Doric temples? Most of the site is on private land and so hasn't been excavated. Quite surreal – on one side of road of the little township is a church that a young couple were getting married at, just when... More

We visited in March, and there were no crowds. It was a beautiful area with well tended grounds. Very unexpected to see beautiful Greek ruins

We've been in Paestum 12 years ago; it was short visit, but so fascinating, that we couldn't get enough of this gem and decided to come back some day. So we did, spent half of the day there, and enjoyed every moment of this visit. This is one of the best and well-preserved ancient Greek temple sights in Italy, as... More

One of the best archeological sites and examples of Greek temple architecture in Italy. A great place to get a bit of history without the hordes of tourists.

The family packed a picnic and enjoy the grounds. My toddler could run and climb while my husband and I were able to stroll the grounds. Paestum is amazing! Definitely check it out if in the area.

The ruins of Paestum are collectively a wonderful site, we had no idea it was so large and contained so many structures. Certainly a worthwhile trip to this site and for us, in cooler and slightly rainy conditions and hardly any other visitors, a treat.

We altered our travel plans to add a side trip to Paestum on our drive up to Amalfi. The ruins are incredible and well worth the stop. So much history can be discovered in this one little patch off the beaten path. We felt these temples were equally as impressive as any in Rome or Athens and possibly even in... More

A massive area. Evenings would seem to be the best time to visit. It's fenced off so you have to buy tickets at the adjacent museum to enter. Allow about an hour or more if you want to linger and have a coffee or meal in view of a large well-preserved Greek temple!

Such an interesting place to visit. Loved it. I highly recommend spending at least 5 hours to visit the museum and see the ruins.
