Parco Archeologico Paestum

Greek antiquity provided the foundation for modern western civilisation. In the UNESCO World Heritage site of Paestum, ancient Greece can still be enjoyed in a way that is impossible elsewhere. 
The three Doric temples of Paestum, built about 2500 years ago, are among the most well-preserved temples in the world. They can also be admired from within by means of a special itinerary that enables visitors to go inside the ancient buildings. 
In many periods of the year, you can also visit the new excavations in the archaeological area designed to bring to light further ancient structures: houses, fortifications, public buildings.
The museum of Paestum, which is situated on the archaeological site, is one of the most important museums in Italy. The collection includes stone and terracotta sculptures, thousands of painted vases and hundreds of frescoed tombs. The Tomb of the Diver is the oldest painted tomb in the Greek world: the image of the young man diving into the water is unparallelled and the academic debate about its meaning still continues to this day.
