Paestum, named Poseidonia during the Greek age, was founded at the beginning of the VI century B.C. by a group of Achaeans coming from Sybaris, who settled in the fertile plain on the south bank of the Sele river; at the end of the V century B.C. the city was conquered by the Lucanians and in the 273 B.C. it became a Latin colony. Today it is possible to visit a wide archaeological area divided into three parts: two sacred, the northern and the southern sanctuaries, and a public one in the middle, the Greek Agora, which later became the Roman Forum. In the two sanctuaries three marvellously preserved Doric temples: on the northern side the so-called Temple of Ceres, dedicated to Athena, on the southern side the so-called Basilica, Hera’s Temple and the so-called Neptune temple , maybe dedicated to Apollo. In the public area are buildings of the Greek era ( the ekklesiasterion, the heroon : the hypogeic tomb of the founder, hero of the city) and of the Roman period ( the forum, the Italic temple, the amphitheatre and the built-up area). The ancient city is surrounded by walls with four door in correspondence with the four cardinal points (Porta Aurea north; Porta Giustizia south; Porta Sirena east; Porta Marina west), datable between the end of the IV century B.C. and the Latin colony period (III century B.C.).

Buffalo mozzarella or Mozzarella di Bufala in Italian is a mozzarella made from the milk of domestic water buffalo. It has been observed that those cheeses made from buffalo milk are higher in calcium, protein and lower in cholesterol than cow’s milk. Mozzarella di bufala is manufactured under strict regulations in areas ranging from Rome in Lazio to Paestum, Campania and a production area near Foggia, Puglia. Buffalo mozzarella coming from the Campania

“Mozzarella di Bufala Campana” trademark and DOC status granted in 1993. In 2008, the European Union granted Mozzarella di Bufala Campana a Protected Geographical Status. Apart from Italy, it is also produced in many countries.

Buffalo mozzarella is a fresh, soft, semi-elastic textured cheese belonging to “pasta filata” family. The process of making pasta filata cheese includes heating the curd to a point where it can be stretched and formed into various shapes. This gives the snowy white mozzarella a mild yet slightly sour taste. The texture is soft, moist and somewhat granular. It is coated with a thin edible rind and brined for up to a week when sold in vacuum-sealed packages.

    Realized by Luigi Vanvitelli for king Charles of Bourbon in 1752, the Royal Palace is characterized by a Majestic rectangular building with four courtyards connected by galleries and by a broad park with gardens, fountains, waterfalls and sculptures. The two main façades, one facing the piazza d’Armi, the other facing the park, are characterized by a sequence of windows, mouldings, frames and pilasters in brick and travertine. The Palace includes 1200 rooms that, in the original project by Vanvitelli, has, apart from the royal residence, also the houses for the troops and the administration offices. From the central vestibule on the ground floor you enter the scenographic flight of steps in polychrome marbles that divides into two other flights of steps that give access to the royal residence and the Palatine chapel. Very interesting and precious is the small court theatre, a perfect miniature re production of the S. Carlo theatre in Naples, with 42 upper-circle boxes set on 5 levels decorated with festoons, puttoes and masks. The entire complex of the Royal Palace extends along a central axis, dotted with three octagonal atriums, and behind the building on the long alley that leads to the park. The latter is divided into three areas: the parterre behind the Royal palace with the so-called “old wood”, the Fish-pond and the grassland with flower-beds, hedges, walkways and statues; the central area along the alley with water basins, waterfalls and sculptures and an English garden with arboreal essences, small lakes and streams.
