Paestum; the town was founded by Greeks in the sixth century B.C. The Romans conquered it in the third century B.C. But the final conquerors of Paestum, malaria-carrying mosquitoes, kept the site wonderfully deserted for nearly a thousand years.
The Temple of Neptune, constructed in 450 B.C, it's a textbook example of the Doric style. As well-preserved and beautiful as the Parthenon in Athens, this huge structure is a tribute to Greek engineering and aesthetics.
