Springtime in Campania: the Minerva’s Garden and the Temples of Paestum!
Friday, 20 April 2018
Beside being a wonderful city by the sea, Salerno is a strategic point connecting the Amalfi Coast to the Cilento Coast. It’s an unavoidable stop-over if you want to discover the Campania region as the city is very well connected both by overland and by sea and it facilitates the travelers’ transfers all along the territory.
Visiting this corner of the peninsula in springtime means to discover the typical colours and perfumes of the local flora. The springtime is characterised by pleasant temperatures and sunny days which intensify the beauty of the local nature: in fact, this is the best moment to visit the unique Minerva’s Garden in Salerno and the majestic Temples of Paestum.
Travelmar’s maritime routes connect Positano, Amalfi, Minori, Maiori and Cetara harbours with Salerno: by using these maritime connections, you will quickly get to the Salerno harbour and easily reach the Minerva’s Garden located in the city centre. The Garden hosts the medical plants belonging to the Schola Medica Salernitana and offers a breath-taking overview over the city of Salerno.
Alternatively, you can choose to catch one of the 15 trains which daily connect the provincial capital of Campania with the ancient city of Paestum and visit the majestic Archeological Site: the Temples ruins and the Paestum Museum gather the thousand-year old history of all the populations that used to live in Paestum, a Magna Graecia’s ancient city.
It’s convenient to #goboating: even if it’s springtime, don’t forget to bring a hat to protect yourself from the sun and a k-way to protect yourself from the wind!
