Go off the beaten track to a magnificent archaeological site that many tourists miss. The Paestum archaeological site is a two hour drive from Positano, circling north around the mountain and then down south towards the coast through magnificent scenery.
Rent an exotic car in Positano for the trip. For speed and style we recommend the stunning Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. This front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive, low lying exclusive sports car will thrill your senses.
Equally as imposing is the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Drop the top and experience the finer things of life in this unforgettable vehicle.
The town of Poseidonia, later named Paestum, was built by Greek colonists in 600 BC. It prospered as a city and was taken over by the Romans, after which it collapsed with the fall of the Roman Empire.
As you approach Paestum, you will be awestruck by the three imposing Greek temples, rising up into the skies. These dramatic temples are among the greatest monuments in Italy. The smallest was dedicated to Athena and later became a Christian church. The oldest is known as the Temple of Hera and the third is the magnificent imposing Temple of Neptune. Much of this ancient city is buried underground, but ruins depicting streets, squares and buildings can be seen. This magical venue has World Heritage Status. Visit the Church, stop for a drink at the local café and then explore the Museum. Wander around and soak up the atmosphere, it is most impressive as the sun sets, when the Temples shimmer in pink.
