The magical town of Paestum is in the southwestern corner of the region of Campania, in the province of Salerno. Abandoned for centuries because of its malaria-infested swamps, three incredibly well-preserved Greek temples dating between 550 and 450 BCE still stand as testimony to thriving ancient Greek colonies that one existed here. In 1969, a farmer in the area discovered the only known ancient Greek frescoes from a tomb dating from the 5th century BCE. While the Greek temples in Sicily receive much more notoriety, those in Paestum are arguably the best-preserved in all the world! Buona visita!
