Rome to Pompeii: Shuttle, tour or train?

Jump to last reply

My family of four (including sons, 16 and 17 years old) will be in Rome during Thanksgiving week. We want to visit Pompeii, but are confused as to the best way to get there. I've checked into a British Airways bus tour that goes through Naples, but BA can't tell me how long we actually get in Pompeii. (It's a 14-hour tour, and we really don't care to see Naples) The Enjoy Rome shuttle seems like a good idea. Has anyone else been satisfied with the 3.5 hours they allow at Pompeii? And finally, when I checked into the cost of train tickets, it seems the train costs almost as much as the shuttle when purchasing ES tickets.

Thank you in advance for any help. I've been so impressed with how generous everyone has been with sharing their experiences.
