1. Paestum Tour: Best Preserved Temples in the World (UNESCO)
Paestum is an ancient city of Magna Grecia called by the founders Poseidonia and later Paestum by the Romans in honor of Poseidon, but very devoted to Athena and Hera. Explore the archaeological park and revel in the archaeological treasures found in Paestum. The guided tour will take you to admire three temples, the first, that of Hera, also called Basilica is the oldest, in Doric style, with impressive dimensions (twenty-six meters wide and fifty-five in length). Later you will visit the largest temple, that of Poseidon also called Neptune, comparable to the temple of Zeus in Olympia, a majestic wonder in Doric style built in 460 B.C.E. The tour continues with the discovery of the third temple, that of Ceres, the Sanctuary dedicated to Athena, of a more modest but equally exceptional size. Along the Via Sacra there will be the opportunity to see the Roman Forum and the Amphitheater. After the ruins of Paestum, the tour will end at the National Archaeological Museum, where you can admire the thirty-three metopes of the temple of Hera Argiva, the statue of Zeus, the crater with the rat of Europe and the famous tomb of the diver: a tomb of five limestone slabs in local travertine plastered and decorated with parietal painting of a figurative subject, realized with the fresco technique.
