Our visit to Paestum: Greek influence in Italy!

This Greek site dates back to 600 B.C. It has 3 incredible,  unique temples along with ruins of the city. The Romans took it over in about 250 B.C.  It was saved from being destroyed and pilfered by others because it was built in a swampy, mosquito infested area!  I never thought I’d be grateful for mosquitos!
