Enjoy a perfect day that combines history and food, away from the crowds.
You will have time to visit Paestum, a Greek settlement founded in the 6th century BC in honour of the Sea God Poseidon. Today this World Heritage Site (recognized by Unesco since 1988) includes three of the world's best-preserved ancient Greek temples, as well as an engrossing museum filled with millennia-old frescoes, ceramics and daily artifacts.
You will visit a buffalo mozzarella farm where you will learn the complete process of buffalo mozzarella making and taste freshly made products. The visit will be followed by a light lunch at the farm, that usually includes an appetizer, a pasta main dish and a dessert (included in the price). Optionally you will also have a wine tasting at an extra cost of 10€ per person.

Joe Banana was easy to work with. They were very responsive to email communications prior to our trip and also while we were in Italy. Our drivers were right on time, right where they said they’d be. Our drivers were also really friendly and gave us good recommendations. We highly recommend Joe Banana!
Very nice driver, car and very professional. We had so much fun and so happy to not drive here. Definitely recommend this tour company. I know the name is funny but they really are a wonderful company. So happy we went on this tour with them.

Can't say enough about Joe Banana's transfers. His drivers speak English and they are attentive, helpful, and if you want a change in your tour, i.e., stay longer at lunch, they are more than glad to help. You can't go wrong with this company.
