Paestum Sharing Tour
Our driver will come and pick you up with one of our Mercedes van to begin your shore excursions sharing tour of Paestum and Buffalo mozzarella from Amalfi port. We’ll drive through Atrani located between the Civita Hill and the Aureo Hill along the Dragon River, so called because a legend says that a dragon used to hide there. Atrani is the smallest village in the south of Italy.
Because of its unique beauty of gardens, squares, buildings and the characteristic “Scalinatelle” stairs, Atrani has been used several times in films sets and was featured in the FIAT 500 commercial. We’ll continue our drive through Minori, the origin of the name comes from the river Rheggina that goes through it, and the ancient Latin name of the town was Rheggina minor. Our next little village along the coast will be Maior that similar to Minori takes his name from the river Rheggia Maior, after that we’ll reach the little fisherman village of Cetara famous for the amazing anchovies and before getting of the high way towards Paestum we pass through the village of Vietri Sul Mare that lays at the foot of Monte San Liberatore and is the first village of the 13 pearls of the Amalfi Coast.
Was founded by the Greek and later on was conquered by the Luciana’s and then by the Roman that gave the city the current name. The ruins of Paestum today are very famous all over the world for three Greek temples in Doric style that are from the 6th century BC and are very well preserved; both temples were dedicated to Hera and Poseidon. The first Temple of Hera dates back to the 550 BC and was built by the Greek and is the oldest one in Paestum.
The second Temple of Hera was built around the 460 BC and was dedicated to Poseidon. In the center of the ruins we have the Roman Forum and going to the northeast we’ll find the roman Amphitheatre.
On the highest point of the site lies the Temple of Athena that was build during the 550 BC. The architectures of the temple are partly Ionic style and partly Doric style. Paestum unlikely Pompeii and Herculaneum is not a very busy sites so you can enjoy and be taken in by the magnificent scenery that the ruins have to offer.
Off course the next stop will be in one of the famous Buffalo Mozzarella farms where you can enjoy the incredible delight of the “Mozzarella di Buffala” and the other local produces. The Buffalo Mozzarella was awarded in 1993 of the DOC (Controlled Designations of Origin by the Italian government and from 1996 it’s also protected by the EU. The name Mozzarella comes from the procedure in which the soft cheese is made called Mozzatura, which means cutting by hands. You can either stop before or after the ruins in one of the farm.
