I actually found this location by accident a few days prior to leaving on our weeklong vacation to Southern Italy. Ruins, Roman and Greek history absolutely fascinates my husband and I. We wanted to show the kids how love for historical places and they had a blast. Definitely do your research prior and if you have any guides (I used Rick Steves self guided tour), use it! You'll leave the site with beautiful pictures and I'm still in awe that we walked on the same roads that the ancient Greeks roamed. Walk across the street to the museum which just sinks in the grandeur that Paestum once was. You're able to take photos without flash so that was a plus. Besides being an ancient site, it also has great historical value if you're a WWII buff. Roam throughout the roman housing areas to see treasures within. (floor mosaics, fountains and general layouts)
