Poseidonia was founded by the Greeks at the end of the 7th century BC. The name was related to the Greek god Poseidon, protector of the sea.

This archaeological area is now one of the best preserved cities from the times of Greek colonization.

We will go to discover the evolution of this ancient city from the Greeks to the Romans through the ruins of temples dedicated to Athena, Hera, Apollo and Zeus.

In Paestum we will visit also the incredible National Museum that show us some of the most important artifacts of Greek and Roman times, where is possible to see the painted Tomb of the Diver, a masterpiece of 2500 years ago.

Poseidonia/Paestum is a wonderfull cultural heritage protected by the UNESCO.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Campania Region. We rented a car and met Roberto in Paestum, Italy to tour the ancient ruins. Roberto was extremely knowledgeable as an archeologist in the area. His pacing of the tour and ability to answer any questions was remarkable. We even got to see a live archaeological excavation happening right while we were touring. I would highly recommend Roberto, and I can only wish we had him in our other trip in Rome. What a difference it makes if you tour with someone knowledgeable about local history and the overall historical and cultural context of these fascinating areas. Thank you Roberto for the wonderful time!

Paestum through the eyes of an archeologist makes it come alive! We loved the tour by Roberto, and found him to be interesting, and informative. I never thought we would enjoy the archeological ruins as much as we did, especially since I was in a wheelchair! Thank you, Roberto!

Ho fatto un ottimo tour con Roberto a Paestum. Non solo è un profondo conoscitore dei luoghi e dell'argomento, ma è anche in grado di inserirlo in un contesto più ampio, in maniera avvincente e passionale! è impossibile non lasciarsi entusiasmare da ciò che dice e da quello che racconta! Inoltre, è una persona anche davvero molto simpatica e ciò contribuisce a rendere piacevole l'atmosfera del tour. Lo consiglio vivamente!!!
