Travel diaries: Cilento!

Happy first of July!
July is a month I love, since it's my birthday month and for me has always meant sun, beach and vacations. Well... I have to work until mid-August, but the long days, warm air and having dinner on the terrace makes me feel already on vacation.

Last week husband and I took a trip down to Cilento, sounth of the Amalfi Coast, to celebrate a friend's wedding. We spent almost three days there, and took some beautiful pictures.
This is Agropoli, the town where the weding took place:




 Ando on our last day we visited Paestum, a place none of us had ever been to. It's famous for its standing greek temples, but it was populated by the locals way before the Greeks took over, and it has roman remnants too. This is the Hera temple:


Amazing, isn't it?
And a view of the ancient town:



This place kind of revived my passion for ancient history and civilizations... I am already reading a book on Homer poems, and I want to read more on ancient literature!
