Private Salerno & Paestum

Leaving from the cruise ship terminal in Salerno, this private excursion will take you on a knowledge-lover's tour of Salerno and Paestum. Explore the charming city of Salerno before heading to the ancient ruins of Paestum.

Sometimes underrated next to its more colorful companion cities on the Amalfi Coast, Salerno is a relaxed town, an authentic Italian experience. There, you'll find the Schola Medica Salernitana, the first medical school not only in Italy, but in the world. In the famed Cathedral of Salerno resides the tomb of Saint Matthew the Evangelist, one of the Twelve Apostles.

The coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea will only get more interesting when you reach Pasteum, a 60 km drive from Salerno. There, you'll find three beautifully preserved ancient Greek temples dating back as far as 600 BC. Along with the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Poseidon, and the Temple of Athena, Paestum is also known for its painted tombs, featuring remarkably colourful frescoes.

Please note the terrain in Italy can be very uneven, and archaeological sites can prove to be especially challenging for those who are not surefooted. Vehicles are accessible for a foldable wheelchair or walker.

After the day's tour, your driver will return you to the cruise ship terminal in Salerno. Book this Salerno excursion today for an unforgettable Italy experience.
