Paestum is a set of Greek style ruins in the heart of the Campania region of Italy. Many people either do not know about these ruins or they are staying in Sorrento, where it is more difficult to reach the site, which is a shame because it is spectacular. From Salerno, the Paestum ruins are only a 30 minute train ride away. For a €10 entrance fee you get access to a large area of ruins, as well as the adjacent museum. The biggest highlight is probably the towering temples among the ruins. There are 3 fairly well preserved temples with nearly all of their external and some internal columns in place. Many artifacts found at the site are housed in the museum which is definitely worth a walkthrough, though in my opinion oddly laid out. If you do get a chance to see this site, and I recommend it highly, give yourself at least 3-4 hours. I went later in the day and felt like I rushed it a bit. I could have spent much more time there. My only complaint is that the place seemed very ill managed, the description plates, for instance, are hardly legible anymore. You would think that at people paying 10 euro a head to get in they could afford some maintenance and basic upgrades. Still, very cool site.
