What people are saying about Paestum

I liked everything very much. An unforgettable experience. An excellent audio guide. Convenient to get there by bus and train. In the beginning, the construction crane, which hangs over Pompeii, interfered with the atmosphere, but at the end of the excursion, it was he who suggested that even after 2000 years , life on the slopes of Vesuvius continues.

If you intend to use the ticket extensively (for example, I was in Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum - including the train - and in the Archaeological Museum of Naples) it is definitely worth it, so I can only recommend it.

It is a very good saving option and it makes it easier for you not to have to buy tickets or tickets, POMPEII and HERCULANO for free and all the transport of metro, bus, discount in museums etc ...

Pompei was very interesting, the catacombs of San Gennaro were also impressive! With the ARTEcard we could use the metro and all trains, that was very practical!

Pass very suitable for means of transport (train, bus, metro) plus entry to museums or sites. economical and practical
