    Ancient Paestum: Wine, Cheese and Ruins

Ancient Paestum: Wine, Cheese and Ruins

  • City: Naples
  • Duration: Tour is approximately 9 hours in length.

This unforgettable full-day private excursion from the Amalfi Coast includes a guided tour of the temples, plus a visit to a cheesemaker and a winery.

Overview

The three Doric temples at Paestum are said to be the best-preserved Greek temples in the world. These magnificent monuments date back to the 6th and 5th centuries B.C., and are dedicated to the city's namesake Poseidon (also known as Neptune, god of the sea), Hera and Ceres. Near sandy beaches in a region known for its typical wines and delicious mozzarella di bufala cheese, Paestum is off the beaten tourist path so you can admire these perfect monuments in all their pristine beauty.

Departing from and returning to your hotel on the Amalfi Coast, first stop will be the Caseificio Vannulo, a farm in the heart of the Campania region where mozzarella di bufala is still produced in a very traditional way. You will tour the farm and learn all about the cheese-making process before sitting down to taste the freshly made cheese.

At the winery Marino you will enjoy a selection of Italian specialties accompanied by some of the typical wines of the South. A guided tour of the archaeological site of ancient Paestum that will give you a feel of life in the Italian countryside completes this full-day excursion that combines history and cuisine of Southern Italy.
