Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum) Tours

Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum)
From Rome’s Coliseum to the mighty city of Pompeii, Italy might be most famous for its Roman ruins, but the Archaeological Park of Paestum (Parco Archeologico di Paestum) dates back even earlier. The ancient Greek city of Poseidonia was founded in 600 B.C. and conquered by the Romans in 273 B.C., when it became Paestum, and the impressively preserved ruins offer a unique glimpse into Italy’s Greco-Roman roots.

The most memorable remains of Paestum are a trio of remarkably preserved Greek Temples – the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Neptune and the Temple of Athena – while additional highlights include part of a Roman Forum and amphitheater, and the Heroon tomb. There’s also an archaeological museum on-site displaying a sizable collection of sculptures, paintings and artifacts, most notably the famous fresco from the 'Tomb of the Diver'.

Practical Info

At the end of the 5th century BC Paestum was conquered by the Lucanians, under whom lived a period of prosperity and reached the maximum territorial expansion; in 273 BC the Romans established their own colony, changing the name of the city with the current one.
