Depart from Sorrento to reach the town of Paestum, founded by the Greeks and named after Poseidon, the god of the sea to whom it was dedicated. During that Ancient Greek time, the Basilica, the Temple of Poseidon and the Temple of Ceres were built and they are considered nowadays to be the finest examples of their kind and better preserved than the Acropolis in Athens. Enjoy a very informative guided tour of this beautiful archaeological site and time permitting, visit the nearby museum that contains sculptures and artifacts found on the site.
After visiting the temples, you will visit a local farm, where the famous buffalo mozzarella cheese is produced, entirely made by hand and exclusively with buffalo milk.
Here a guided tour will show you the daily production and the stables where the most avant-garde techniques of milking are used, to safeguard animal welfare, hygiene, and milk quality.
At the end of the guided tour, you will have a taste of this exquisite product!
After the visit, you will have some free time where you are free to purchase lunch from the farm’s own bistro or, of course, if you prefer, you can bring your own packed lunch.
Return to Sorrento in the afternoon.
