Temples at Paestum

Paestum, Campania

A day trip to the fascinating UNESCO sight of Paestum had been on my travel wish list for a few months. It didn’t disappoint. We toured the museum first, taking in the details of numerous articles found at Paestum and understanding the history of the area from Neolithic times through the Graeco Roman civilisations to the present day. Three enourmous temples dominate the sight and are stunning in size and grandeur. But there is much else to see … amphitheatres, the foundations of the forum and a maze of streets. I captured many angles on the temples, however none really show the imposing stature of the temples. The sunburst in his shot was just enough for me to think it was ok!
