Embark on an adventure to discover the rich history of Paestum and experience the traditional Italian way of making mozzarella cheese. Your English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel at 7:30 am.
Our first stop is at the Tenuta Vannulo cheese factory where the renowned buffalo mozzarella is handcrafted using only the finest milk. You have the option to take a private guided tour with a factory representative for an extra fee of 40 Euros (for groups up to 6 people) or join a small group tour if available. During the tour, you'll visit the daily production, learn about the avant-garde milking techniques, see the leather shop and museum, and have the opportunity to sample some fresh buffalo mozzarella.
Next, we'll journey to the ancient Greek city of Paestum, located on the coast of the Tyrrhenian sea. The city, originally called Poseidonia, was founded in 600 BC by Greek colonists and later conquered by the Lucanians and Romans. Explore the well-preserved Greek temples, including the Temple of Hera, Neptune, and Ceres dedicated to Athena. You'll also visit the Archeological Museum and see the archaic Greek sculptures and vases, including a series of metopes depicting scenes from Homeric myths.
After touring Paestum, we'll return to the Tenuta Vannulo cheese factory for a delicious lunch featuring their specialties made with buffalo mozzarella. In the afternoon, we'll drive back to the port and conclude our tour.
