Paestum - Greek temples

Among the greatest glories of Campania, Paestum is one of the few places in Italy that affords more than a
glimpse of Magna Grecia - the overseas colonies established by the city states of ancient Greece.

Here the remains of three magnificent temples stand amidst ruins from the walled city, attracting relatively
few visitors despite Naples, Sorrento and Amalfi all being so close.
