Vesuvius/Herculanem/Pompeii - one day?

Jump to last reply

Staying in Sorrento, I would appreciate opinions on a proposed itinerary to attempt visiting all three sites in one day.
Start by making it to Ercolano on the Circumvesuviano train at catch the first Vesuvio Express bus at 9.30. Walk to the Herculaneum site on return; arrive 12.15, leave 14.00.
Lunch at Viva Lo Re 14.15 - 15.30. Train to Pompeii, arrive at site 16.30. Depart18.30 to return to Sorrento.
One question has to be whether allocating approx. two hours each to the sites is sufficient; we would not rate ourselves especially taken by this particular period of history but rushing around with one eye on the watch would make the whole expedition pointless. Self-guided would be our preferred way to view.
On paper, things look doable but in mid July, at the height of the season, perhaps those with experience could advise......
