Travel Tips for Paestum

Different than Pomeii...

by sim1


This site is totally different to Pompeii or Ercolano. It was quiet here, no one to see..... a total difference with the busy Pompeii. It was almost like no one knows Paestum. But why? The temples are so amazing. When I mention this place to people a lot of the times they look at me with blank faces and a curious expression... "Paestum????" they ask... "Yes..... Paestum!" I answer... "A fantastic place where you can see Greek temples!" Hahaha, and than I mostly show them some photos of the Temples.

The pool

by orlandom

This area has been traditionally considered to be a Gymnasium .because the pool and surrounding structures were thought to have been designed for Gymnastic competitions. In fact this is a sanctuary for worship of the female goddess of fertility

House with the marble impluvium

by orlandom

This is the house with the marble impluvium (rain basin), on porta marina road. Here you can admire one of most spacious homes of the roman Paestum. This home even had a big pool. Excavation has shown that the house was divided in two and the pool was filled in and replaced with a peristyle of brick columns faced with stucco, which have been restored and give a good idea of the portico occupying the space of the former pool.

The temples of Paestum

by sim1


South of Napoli, you can find these magnificent temples of Paestum. If you are anywhere near, don't forget to go there. It is really worth the detour!

Paestum and the surrounding area is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
