Paestum: introduction

Paestum Hotel

A short distance away from Salerno, in a position dominating the Piana dei Templi, rises Paestum. The city, rich in history and archaeological sites, offers the tourist an impressive display of natural scenery with its spectacular sea, and coastal landscapes and its green countryside, scattered with walking routes.

To visit: the Hera Sanctuary, the Basilica, the Temple of Cerere or Athena, the Amphitheatre, the Forum, the Diver's Tomb, the ancient walls of Paestum which, in approximately five kilometers of wall, form a pentagon around the city.

Built in more recent times one finds the Madonna del Granato, destination of pilgrimages, and the Church of the Confraternity of the Rosario. As far as traditional products of the area are concerned, particularly worthy of note are the Mozzarella di Bufala, the Paestum Artichoke, the Cilento Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and the marvelous local Figs.
