Guided Tour of Paestum
Visit Paestum, a city of Campania, by joining a Guided Tour of Paestum among those proposed by the authorized local guides of Evolved Guide.
Paestum is also known as Pesto, and once was one of the ancient cities of Magna Grecia. At the time it was named Poseidonia by its founders in honor of Poseidone, the god of the sea, earthquakes and tsunamis. It will change again its name into Paestum after the conquest of the city by the Romans.
The heyday of Poseidonia goes from 560 BC. to 440 BC and corresponds to the Greek age. It is thought that among the various factors that contributed to make this period so flourishing there was the easing of the Etruscan presence, which created an economic and power vacuum in the area located in the north of Sele. Subsequently, the Lucanians took possession of the city. There’s a lack of information about the wars waged by the Lucanians. For this reason, many historians talk about the presence of the Italic population, which was already present in the Greek period. They think the italic population did humble and servile jobs until they slowly got the political power of the city. In 273 BC Paestum became a Roman colony.
