The day day will start with a drive by the famous Sorrento / Naples Coast. We will continue along our drive passing through the town of Salerno, where just to the east and past the headlands of Pontecagnano, Battipaglia, Eboli till reaching Paestum.
UNESCO has recognized Paestum as a World Heritage Site. Unlike the busy Pompeii and even Herculaneum, Paestum can often be deserted as it is off the beaten path other tourists take. The gleaming white marble of the ancient Greek temples that date back to the 6th century BC, set against the dark brown hills and deep blue sea, provide a uniquely Greek experience in Italy.
Today, the preserved temple of Hera II (once mistakenly believed to be the Temple of Poseidon) is one of three temples you will have the opportunity to see. You will have about 2 - 2.5 hours to visit the ruins and the archeological museum that is home to a rich collection of Greek art and antiquities, either on your own or with a private guide (additional cost).
Look out for the buffalo grazing on the roadside during your drive as Paestum is also home to the famous Buffalo mozzarella cheese. After you visit the Greek ruins and temples we will stop at one of these famous farms for a unbelievable tour, tasting and lunch that will be 3 of the best hours of your vacation!
After this unique experience we will drive back to the location where we started.
