A late afternoon visit avoids the tourist rush. The temples are well-preserved and easy to walk around and into! A unique experience; 2 hours max for most of us.

Amazingly intact site. So impressive. If spending time in Salerno or Cilento don't miss this site! Beautifully lit at night and they have many events worth a look at the website. We enjoyed a night of jazz while we were visiting this past August.

Such ancient history (600 BC) from an early Greek settlement on the Italian peninsular. Consider them better than those of The Valley of Temples in Sicily.

A must see if you are visiting this part of Italy. A nice area with lots of campsites and hotels. Lots of good places to eat in all price ranges.

Lovely place, rich history, wonderful aesthetics. Only a short stop, definitely a good thing to do in Paestum. Plenty of food and drink nearby. Wear comfy shoes, and apply sun cream!

Breathtaking and humbling. Visit the museum too for an amazing insight to this astonishing place. In September, easy to park (€3) fewer tourists, lovely restaurants and choice of gift shops. Wear a hat it gets very hot with little shade.

The Temples at Paestum are a smaller combination of Agrigento and Pompeii - but still impressive. Serene and inspiring. Fewer people than the better-known monuments and a super museum exhibition. Beware - the main street is pedestrianised - drive through at risk of fines!

We went to see the temples late afternoon when it was cooler, it was lovely, you do need several hours to wander around and see everything, there is an entrance fee for the main temple area. But there are shops and places to eat on...More
