Salerno and Paestum
Our Mini-Group Journeys include affordable and pleasant small group day trips of the most requested and fine destinations of the Naples Bay area.
These special itineraries offer unique experiences of nature, art and history; escorted by our local expert tour guides, plus museum entrance fees and private minibus.
Visit the cities of Salerno and Paestum.
Together with our guide, we reach the Old Town. Crossing the alleys and the squares we see churches and palaces that preserve the history of the city, real evidence of the cultural, social and economic wealth of the past.
Next stop, the Duomo of Salerno; a must see when in Salerno. The cathedral, dedicated to San Matteo, was built in the Romanesque style in the 11th century and subsequently modified several times. It is an important testimony of the Arab-Norman fusion, of great historical and artistic value.
Lunch on your own.
We continue travelling east of the Gulf of Salerno to reach Paestum, once one of the richest and largest Greek colonies in Southern Italy. Visit the remains of the temples and not far from them the Museum containing mainly ancient Greek and Lucan objects, found in various necropolis of the surroundings. A highlight of the museum is the painting found in the so-called ‘Tomb of the diver’, the only remaining example of Greek painting of Magna Graecia.
