We took the decision to go South for a couple of days to visit Paestum. This had been a long-cherished ambition. We arrived in the late afternoon, and were able to see the remains at dusk:
These are the temples of Poseidon and the first temple of Hera. It was too late to go in when we arrived, so we went for a Pizza. On the way back, we got these night photos.
The next day, we were able to see how big the site really is. Our hotel was at the Southern end of the city, so we start with Hera 1 and Poseidon.
Hera I, with some irreverent pilgrims.
Swimming pool, with underfloor and underwater obstacle course.
Painted Jar. Tourist having impromptu night-time Cretan dancing lesson, perhaps.
Armour; although it isnīt clear why the invisible man would need any.
