The Temple of Hera (or Hera), also known as Temple of Poseidon or Neptune Temple, it was built in the polis of Poseidon (the Roman name Pæstum) around the middle of the fifth century BC
The ancient Greeks were not enough mathematical precision structures. They attached great importance to the visual effect. Therefore, until now, we can enjoy the magnificent view of this structure.

Templi Greci di Paestum

Founded by Greek colonists, the ancient city of Poseidonia dates from 600 B.C. It was abandoned for centuries, but the remarkably well-preserved Greek temples were excavated in the mid-18th century.

Reviewed By BragaA - Rio

Paestum is located one hour south of Salerno. Greek ruins are impressive: Temple of Hera, Temple of Netune and Temple of Ceres are impressive.

The Sea Caves of Cape Palinuro are the main attraction of the area. You can visit with boats leaving from the harbor of Palinuro. The tour includes the famous Blue Grotto, the Cave of Blood, the Sulfur Grotto and the Cave of the Monks. Finally, will be a stop at the Bay of Good Sleep for a refreshing swim in the clear waters of the bay.

Reviewed By JuliusVtravel - Naples, Campania, Italy

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, lush vegetation, crystal clear waters and a coast stretching for 100 km:
The Blue Grotto
Is the cave most known to tourists and the easiest to get by boat, just outside the harbor of Palinuro, and is therefore the most visited, also thanks to the spectacular play of light that can be seen on the surface of the water, which magically, especially at certain times of the day, is colored by an intense blue. The maximum depth of the cave is 33 metres.
To reach it you can catch a small boat which departs from the port of Palinuro and which may also include the possibility of excursions to discover the caves of Capo Palinuro like this one, the Blue Grotto. Current charge is €15 p.p.for a 90 minute boat ride.

Temple of Athena

Reviewed By Man1806 - Rome, Italy

This temple is an excellent example of Ancient Greek architecture in Italy. Built around 500 B.C. show us the tecnique of local architect. Is well maintained and his the masterpiece of Doric Style Architecture. Originally the name of the city was "Posidonia", from Poseidon God of the sea, and the roman conqueror changes the name in Paestum. His front so high and complete is a "unicum" for the visitors, witk lovely position, well surrounded by the nature and the background of the sky allow us to enjoy lights change of the colomum and block of marble.. No one must forget that The Paestum Temple is a complulsory visit.

Badia della Santissima Trinita'

Reviewed By GabyDublin - Dublin

This is a most beautiful mediaeval monastery which still houses about ten working monks. The architecture of the building is astounding - it is actually built into cliff and incorporates the cliff face. The guided tour is worth taking, showing the beautiful library and the vaults and giving a lot of background information. It has to be said that it is considerably off the beaten track and takes a little finding in the little hamlet of Corpo di Cavo - so if you are moving along the Amalfi coastline fairly fast, it is worth taking this into consideration.

Area Marina Protetta Costa degli Infreschi e della Masseta

Reviewed By Giffoni - Sydney

We motored out of Marina di Scario and followed the coastline to Infreschi, a beautiful cove with laid moorings and azure blue water. There are small Beaches and a large cave which small boats were backing into but fresh, cold water was coming out of the cave. We arrived early, had a swim and finally had an early lunch.
Then it began to get busy, so we continued on to Marina di Camerota. We did not see any facilities on the shore, for boats the moorings are great , otherwise anchor in ten meters of water.

Cala Bianca Beach

Reviewed By aingerfam - Doha, Qatar

After Reading many reviews on here, we decided to drive to find this amazing beach.
Sadly we couldn't find it by car using maps, sat mac etc. and drove around the hills in many directions to try and find it. Sadly we didn't
It would be nice to have known that it is best to access by boat from Marina di Camerota!!! Unless we missed a road somewhere!
But we enjoyed the beach with our 4 boys at the marina di Camerota instead.

Villa d'Ayala-Valva

Reviewed By 363frer - Bologna, Italy

The last time I went to Valva was more than 6 years ago. This time I decided to spend 5 days in this little town and I discovered the Villa D'Ayala that is own by the Knights of Malta. I actually visited it before but only in the evening, during events (on summers there is a quite interesting program of drama, music and theatre). With the sun I could see properly the amazing park with sequoias and huge trees, it is such majestic and unique, even if the renovation of the castle is not finished yet, the 18 hectars park includes two lovely Italian Gardens and the Verzura Theatre, a MUST SEE theatre made of box bushes and roman sculptures, amazing, probably the only one in the world. Inside the park there are several groups of sculptures, copies of the Gianbologna's in Florence, and lots of muses, Spring, Summer, the Arts, Diana, ecc...Very interesting it is also the system of caves and channels, probably Romans.
It is absolutely a place to visit and if you feel hungry after the spectacular view go to L'arbustico and try the typical Valvese cuisine.

Oasi WWF di Morigerati

Reviewed By Rob W - Montreal, Canada

We visited the site while staying in Polinuro, about an hour away. Very pretty walk through woods, by river, and spectacular cave. The mill was very interesting as it still grinds wheat into flour and has been well maintained. The WWF site is right in Morigerati. The signs point out of town and we drove an extra hour on very windy roads looking for it. The sign says it will be closed if raining so do not go on a rainy day. Small fee at entrance. Hilly walk but not at all difficult.
