  • Over the past two years I have been with the family to visit the Valley of the temples, the temples of Segesta and Selinunte, all spectacular. Of course I didn't expect to stay even more amazed by the beauty of the temples at Paestum and instead ... In particular, the huge gift of being able to walk inside the Temple of Neptune (the second) is something priceless and not describable in words. Without wishing to make ridiculous rankings I recommend everyone to visit it once in their lifetime.

  • Really remarkable site. The temples are in great condition. Be sure to carry lots of water and a hat in summer! There's no shade and the sun is brutal!
  • Well-preserved Greek ruins in a charming scenery.
  • No tourists, no crowds. Easy, stroller-friendly, walking. Interesting museum. Very well preserved ruins.
  • A great place to visit. It's not so well knows as Pompeii, making it not as busy and giving you more room to take pictures and enjoy the location.
  • Great place to enjoy the best preserved Greek ruins without any crowds.
