Excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum
Declared a World Heritage Site in 1997, the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the city buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 70 BC, are one of the few remaining proofs of the original social structures.
The eruption of the volcano in fact took place in broad daylight, literally petrifying people and their objects. The lava in Pompeii has imprisoned people who were trying to save himself heading to the port and cooling scored the profile of the bodies. A similar fate also for the inhabitants of Herculaneum, for which the speed with which the tragedy came true did not leave time to even escape attempts.
Admire the sunset in the shadow of the temples of Paestum dedicated to ancient gods Hera and Neptune, without forget to see the amphitheater, the Sacred Way, the baths and of course the city enclosed in the walls.
Within the archaeological site it is possible to take part in various activities ranging from guided tours to exhibitions to get to conferences and video projections, everything to make you fully enjoy the magic of Paestum.
