Founded by Greek colonists, the ancient city of Poseidonia dates from 600 B.C. It was abandoned for centuries, but the remarkably well-preserved Greek temples were excavated in the mid-18th century.

Definitely go with a guide who can tell you the history of the site as well as explain the different structures. The small museum is also definitely worth a visit

We visited here using the Campagnia Region 3-day card. It was the third attraction we visited, so we were charged a total of 4 euro for two persons. That was fine with us, as we were dedicated to seeing the temples in person. We entered the museum first to obtain the tickets.

Feel as if you are back hundreds of years well kept site some notice boards but good to wander in awe at the temples which are still standing. Saw a few archaeologists working at the site so obviously there are still magic things to be found.

I first learned about Paestum through an UCLA Italian professor friend of mine. He raved about how magnificent Paestum was with Greek temples nearly entirely intact - the most comprehensive site in all of Italy. Indeed, that is the truth. Paestum took my breath away the 1st time

The best part of this ruin were the three very well preserved temples. We were able to actually walk in the temple to Poseidon. I’ve seen Greek temples before but have never seen one this much in tact. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting.
