Reviewed By JuliusVtravel - Naples, Campania, Italy

Once you walk through the 7th century gate and enter the stronghold, surrounded by the old walled fortifications and the Aragonese castle with its three circular towers and a moat, you'll find yourself immersed in medieval times. The history of the town, shaped by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Saracens as well as the attack of Turkish pirates, makes this a fascinating background for exploring the historical artefacts and other items of archaeological interest.

Crowded with people, going up these stairs during the evening hours you can breathe a different atmosphere, I love this spot, going up from here you can see the fantastic view of the harbor of Agropoli, a thrilling spectacle, then if you get the chance to be there during the sunset is even more distinctive.

Anfiteatro Romano Di Paestum

Reviewed By Ron S - New York City, New York

Not much is left of the Amphitheater and only about a half of it is excavated. Judging by the remaining passageway the building had to be some 30-40 feet high.
Some photographs posted here depict not the Amphitheater but another structure situated nearby. The pictures showing concentric circular rows of seats is the ekklesiasterion, the Greek council meeting place.
