How long does Paestum take?

Planning your time: Give yourself at least a good 2–3 hours at the site and museum—after all, you made the effort and came all this way.

Unelss you can knock it off first thing in the morning, make Paestum an afternoon activity, starting with lunch, then some beach time (and mozzarella time), holding off on the museum and archaeological site until things cool off in the later afternoon—plus, this way you get to watch the sunset light up the stones of the ruins before turning in for the night then moving on the morning.
