Meet your guide at Nevada Park in Paestum, and start your tour to learn about Operation Avalanche. The 1943 Allied invasion was centered on the coastline in and around Salerno, and was one of the largest, and most significant, WWII landing operations.
Explore a local museum exhibition with your guide to learn how the operation of September 1943 unfolded, then head to into Salerno for a sightseeing tour. As you make your way around the sights, you’ll learn more about the invasion. Hear about the hard-fought battle for the Salerno beachhead, and how the operation led to Italy’s liberation from the Nazis.
Return to Paestum in time for lunch, and tuck into a light lunch of sausage, mozzarella, and grilled vegetables. With your appetite sated, you’ll enjoy a final visit to the Tower of Paestum, a military fortification that formed part of a chain of towers dotted along the coastline. Your tour ends in Paestum.
