Although it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, Paestum is not as well known as other ancient ruins in the general area. Consequently, the area is not overrun with tourists. There were hardly any on the late September day we visited. The adjacent museum houses countless artifacts including many of the walls of burial sites. The custom was to paint the interior of the walls surrounding the tomb with pictures that depicted the dead man's life -- or the life he wished he had lived. Women were not granted the same honor.

Lacqua is a miniature hotel and spa; only 6 rooms. But each has a private balcony with a little pool overlooking the sea. We took the bus to Sorrento one day even though we have been there several times. The streets were crowded with tourists and we were glad to get back to our idyllic lodging where the sunsets were magnificent.
