The three Doric temples of Paestum are said to be the best preserved Greek temples in the world and the walls around Paestum are the most complete of that period.
Excavated Pompeii is a very well preserved complete Roman City. It is a lifelike impression of classical antiquity. A visit to Pompeii is a must on the agenda of every tourist in Campania.
Ercolano is smaller but also well preserved. Don't forget to also visit Vesuvius. Have a panoramic view on the entire Gulf of Naples.
Visit the Gulf of Salerno with about 40 kilometers of sandy beaches and Cilento Coast with the beaches of the beautiful seaside resorts Marina di Ascea, Marina di Camerota, Palinuro with its long sandy beaches around.
All the frequented tourist destinations as Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrento, Capri and even Naples are at least good for a day trip.
But you may also choose less frequented places of a magnificent landscape. The beautiful mountain ranges of the Cilento, which is a Unesco biosphere reserve, with its genuine villages. Have a look at the gorges and the valleys of the Calore and the Mingardo River.
Enjoy some different tourist activities as trekking, cycling with mountain bikes, horse riding and more.

"www.paestum.de" is a private German website. I hope you will at least enjoy the photos and panoramas from these beautiful places in Southern Italy as long as there are still some pages which are not completely translated into English. Due to my limited knowledge of the English language there will certainly be some mistakes. It would be very nice if anybody could give me some hints on these mistakes via E M A I L
