Acropolis Museum and the archeological site of Paestum

Our journey to discover the site of Paestum begins with the guided tour of the Museum of Acropolis at the site of the Farnace of Agropoli where the splendid tables of Giovanni Battista Piranesi are stored. The views of Piranesi are a valuable historical testimony on which to admire the ruins of Paestum as they presented themselves to the eighteenth-century travelers of the Grand Tour.
Our experiential proposal continues at the Archaeological Park of Paestum.
Your guide will accompany you through Porta della Sirena, to discover the ancient Greek colony and admiring its high perimeter walls, the museum and the suggestive park or the heart of the Greek-Roman city on which all the most important monuments rise: the temples, the Greek Agora and the Roman Forum, the Tabernae, the Basilica, the Macellum, the Greek ekklesiasterion and the Roman comitium.
