Guide Pompei - Tours in Pompeii

Salerno & Paestum

Stroll around Salerno, an important cultural city, along with an eventful history

Duration: 8 hours

The Historic centre is one of the most well maintained ones in all Italy with its famous Via dei Mercati, the core of the shopping area in the city and its beautiful promenade full of different palms reminiscent of the French Riviera. Visit the main attractions of this city, the Cathedral of St. Mathew from end of the 11th century with the characteristic Bell-Tower.

The city is also known for the Medical School of Salerno, which was the first and most important medical institution in medieval Europe, considered the mother of modern universities, the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi and the Provincial Art Gallery.

Visit the Greco Roman city of Paestum originally known as Poseidonia. It became a Roman city in 273 BC and continued prospering during the Roman imperial period. It was abandoned during the middle Ages and its ruins only became news again in the 18th century, after the discovery of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Start your guided walking tour strolling around impressive and well preserved Doric Greek temples, the Forum, the amphitheatre, the Via Sacra (or Sacred Way)and tombs. We can say that these Greek temples are one of the best preserved ones in the World, competing with those located in Athens and Sicily.

Visit the Paestum museum to enjoy antique metopes, the marble statue of Hera, funerary ornaments from the necropolises, the Roman Room, illustrating the various phases of the city’s history and the highlight of this museum, the series of mural paintings which decorated Poseidonia’s tombs including the world famous Tomb of Diver discovered in 1968 and dating to around 470 B.C. It is the only painted tomb to survive from the Greek city.

Have as much time as you need for wandering through at your own peace.

The guide (Or your driver) will be at your disposal for the full day in order to suit your private tour according to your main interests and needs and to give you all the neccesary information and best suggestions about the area.
