Paestum

The ruins of Paestum allows the visitor to view temples built before the Roman times and also the foundations of the houses and shops along the via. If you go in the Fall of Spring the crowds will be smaller and you can sit and enjoy the structures without so many people getting in the way of your photos.
I recommend a good guide book that you can pick up in the many souvenir shops at the entrance.
The beaches near here are very nice for swimming, and you can also find good lodging in the nearby agritourismos.
