Photographer's Note

It was a very good idea to stay in the hostel in Paestum. The hostel was just on the other side of the ruins and in this way I could see all the temples in blue hour and then in the night. it was fascinating experience.
Paestum was a major ancient Greek city on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Magna Graecia (southern Italy). The ruins of Paestum are famous for their three ancient Greek temples in the Doric order, dating from about 600 to 450 BC, which are in a very good state of preservation. The city walls and amphitheatre are largely intact, and the bottom of the walls of many other structures remain, as well as paved roads. The site is open to the public, and there is a modern national museum within it, which also contains the finds from the associated Greek site of Foce del Sele.
Paestum contains three of the most well-preserved ancient Greek temples in the world.

This is the second temple of Hera, built c. 460–450 BC.
i will upload also the view in the day as Workshop.
