Experience it!  Myths & Legends

Approximately 55 south of Naples, Italy lies the ancient city of Paestum.  Legends tell of the city’s founding by Jason and the Argonauts, but archaeologists, uncomfortable with the stuff of legends, attribute Paestum’s birth to 7th-century Greek colonists.  With the fall of the Roman Empire, Paestum fell into decline and was deserted for many centuries.  Rediscovered only in 1752 by an Italian road-building crew working in the area, Paestum is the finest preserved Greek temple complex in the Mediterranean world.  The two primary temples, the 550 BC Basilica and the 450 BC Temple of Neptune, are archaeological wonders that will leave an impression on you long after your return home.  The Temple of Neptune – in all its classic Doric beauty -0 has thick marble columns that are still strong and upright.  It is the oldest and best-preserved of the Greek temples in Italy, and it still inspires hope in those who visit its open-air shrine.  A third temple on the site was dedicated to Athena, the goddess of wisdom, spiritual consciousness, and the arts.
