temples and icecream in Paestum ♥

Paestum Travel Beige Outfit Italy Poseidonia
Today I wanted to share some photos from Paestum. In case you follow me on Instagram you already saw some of them on Instagram. I love archaeology and Greek mythology, so this was a wonderful place to be at. I loved all the beautiful beige stones that tell stories that happened long ago. Paestum was founded by the Greek, named Poseidonia back then (about 600 BC). Due to the fertile soil, they could plant a lot of stuff and got wealthy enough to built those gigantic temples. As with so many place this one got lost and was found again around the same time as Pompeii and Herculaneum (18th century). If you get the chance you should visit the temples of Hera, Poseidon and Athena as well as the museum, they have some fascinating pieces there.

The Heraion is a bit further away, mum and I took the bikes to get there. It’s only a couple of stones/remains, but apparently it was sort of a temple once, too. However the museum they had closed as well which I think is rather sad.

    • It is a fantastic, beautiful place and the dog was the cutest. I bet he often runs around the area! (Both cats and dogs living on the street in this area look very good, because people take care)

  1. I love Paestum, I spent many of my childhood days running in its archeological park :)
    Just one thought on the insect you took a photo of: in Italian it’s called ‘cimice’, and it’s one of the most horrendous beasts. You may have not experienced it, but it makes a very loud noise when it flies and it releases a horrible smell. NOT CUTE AT ALL ㅜ.ㅜ

    • I can imgaine having fun in the park as a kid! It is such a wonderful place!

      Oh and for the insect: I though so too, this one did not smell at all, but it reminded me a lot of what we used to call “Stinkkäfer” (stinkbug) as kids. Haha. But it was so beautiful. :D
