Best way to visit Pompeii??

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I posted and my trip to France and Italy is coming up very soon (25 days!!!). I am hoping for some guidance for visiting Pompeii while I am away.

I am going to be arriving in Positano from Florence on July 20 around supper and will be departing to head to Rome on July 25. I leave to head home on July 28 in the afternoon.

I have two options for visiting Pompeii:
1. make this a day trip from Positano - if this were the option, there is a bus stop right by where we are staying so I could take the bus to Sorrento and then the train to Pompeii and the reverse back (or the ferry from Sorrento back). Alternatively I could pay a driver 70 euro to drive us there and train back. I do not wish to pay a driver for both ways as to have the driver wait, etc. the cost becomes very high. (Please let me know if public transit is doable)

2. visit Pompeii on the way to Rome. If this were the case we could hire the driver or do the bus/train option, store our luggage at the train station and when we leave we will need to take the commuter train and then another train to get to Rome.

It seems to make the most sense to visit on the way to Rome to eliminate any backtracking, BUT we will have our luggage with us and I am not sure how crazy or hectic this option will be? Also will we be able to enjoy ourselves on a timeline, knowing we have another travel ahead of us?

Also the choice will make a difference as to which area we sacrifice some time in (either Positano or Rome).

Any support with this would be great! I am not one to want to plan out every little detail, but if this is a daytrip, we need to book our transportation now from Positano to Rome for our departure date. Also it was strongly encouraged that we hire a guide for Pompeii so we will need to chose a date (it sounds like guides are filling up).

Thanks again for everything!!

Meagan
