Escape Naples for the day and journey into the ancient past at Paestum, the most complete Greco-Roman settlement left in Italy. Spend an inspiring afternoon in sunny Amalfi, famed as a haven for A-list celebrities and a quaint seaside lifestyle.
What to Expect
This full-day private tour from Naples offers an inspiring journey into the ancient past at Paestum and a little glitz and glamor in picturesque Amalfi. Paestum is arguably the most spectacular Greco-Roman site in Italy and features a wealth of well-preserved temples and ruins to explore.
There are three intact Greek temples to view with the finest doric columns from this era in Italy. Take a look at the museum here which details much of its known history and displays statues, mosaic tiling and painted gravestones. There are several house ruins and a lookout tower, however much of this ancient site has yet to be fully excavated and will surely offer up many more archaeological treasures in the coming years.
Nearby in the Canneto river valley stands famous Amalfi overlooking a picturesque pebble beach. It offers a typically attractive Mediterranean location with charming whitewashed houses perched on the hillside overlooking the sea. Explore the plush villas and winding cobbled streets of this tranquil town, noted for its upmarket specialty shops and as a haven for the rich and famous.
Attractions at Amalfi include the historic paper mill and 13th-century Cathedral and Cloister of Paradise. The latter features 120 eye-catching columns built in Arabic style. The town is also noted for its lush flora and there is time to explore with a short hike or bicycle ride.
