"As Pompei and Ercolano are so..." Salerno Off The Beaten Path Tip by JaumeBCN

Salerno Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 5 photos


As Pompei and Ercolano are so near from Salerno and Naples, many people don't visit Paestum where there are some fantastic Greek temples, almost 'new' I would say. The most impressive of the temples is the Tempio di Neptuno (Vth century b.C.). Also there's a museum with nice paintings such as the Tomba del Tuffatore which includes the painting Gli Amanti (The Lovers). Some people say it's one of the most ancient gay paintings (480 b.C.).
