Pompeii: will 2 hrs be enough, considering...

Jump to last reply

We are driving from Sorrento to Rome on Sunday, and I wonder if we can stop at Pompeii and do the 2 hour audio guide, and if that is enough time, CONSIDERING, that we've already been to Oplontis (AMAZING villa) and Herculaneum (very interesting neighbourhood) earlier this week.

I've been to Pompeii many years ago, and it really made an impression on me. I'm traveling with DH and 2 friends who aren't as interested as we are.

I've heard the House of Menander is opened after being closed, and there are a few other things I'd like to see. DH is interested in seeing the underground aqueduct.

We did a tour of Turkey not long ago, and we saw many wonderful sites there, like Ephesus. So it's not like we have to see an amphitheater or such. I'd just like some feedback.

I'd appreciate any comments that would add to our discussion about stopping for a short visit on our way. Also, if you have a link to a map of the site, could you share that with me also.

The drive to Rome takes +/-3:15 hrs, so leaving in the morning should give us time. We haven't been to Naples, and we won't be going, so the museum there is out.
