Though Italy is known for its Roman ruins, much of the southern part of the peninsula was part of Magna Grecia, the Greek Empire, long before the Roman conquest. Vivid testimony of this ancient Greek occupation can be found at Paestum, with a trio of the best-preserved Greek temples in the world, dating as far back as the sixth century BC.

It can accommodate up to 7 passengers who can enjoy air conditioning and leather reclining seats which are perfect for a comfortable ride.

Paestum is a truly enchanting and atmospheric place, and a 'must' on any classical tour of Italy. Just south of the Sorrento peninsula and Amalfi Coast, and a mile inland, this is a haunting archaeological site where three Greek temples stand in the middle of the countryside. Paestum is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once called Poseidonia, the city was founded in the VII century BC by Greeks colonists from Sybaris and it would has probably occupied by a human settlement when they got there. It turned the name in Paestum once and for all when it was taken by Rome and continued to prosper until the mouth of river Salso started to be buried by sand and the whole place turned into a swamp.
