Paestum is ideal for those who want a holiday that combines leisure and culture. The long beach of Paestum (15 Km), washed by the sea of Cilento is a popular destination in the summer. A very large pine forest stands between the coastal road and the beach. In the coolest hours, it is really pleasant to have a meal and relax before returning to the beach. Dominated by the presence of the temples, the archaeological area of Paestum, was recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1988 and is bordered by well-preserved walls and towers, of considerable interest and is visited with pleasure.
