The famous site of Paestum, near Naples, is the first of Italy's architectural sites to reopen after the coronavirus blockade.
In the 6th century BC, it was the site of a Greek colony and has three extremely well-preserved Doric temples.
The park is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site; it has traces of human occupation "that go back to prehistoric times".
“I came for the weekend,” says Maria, a teacher. ”I took the opportunity to take my students on a virtual trip – my students at a distance. They were all connected, and I took them to Paestum. And they loved it. "
The Vatican museum is also preparing to reopen visitors from June 1, but advance reservations are mandatory. Ticket sales and souvenir revenue are an important source of income for the Holy See.
