What to do between Rome & Sorrento? Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples, etc ...

Jump to last reply

We (an active couple in our mid 20s) will be in Italy May 2012, spending a few days in Rome before training to Sorrento on a Saturday, and then training back to Rome on Tuesday. We're interested in some combination of seeing Pompeii, Herculaneum, the Archeological museum in Naples, and climbing Mount Vesuvius on our two travel days. I'm pretty comfortable with how to get to Pompeii, and have heard there is luggage storage on site. One of the travel days will be dedicated to Pompeii.

So my question is, mainly for the other 3 sites, how accessible are they from the train stations and is there a place to store luggage? About how long should we plan for touring each? Do any of them pair well to do more than one in a single day? Any other things we should note? We of course realize we won't actually end up seeing all four sites.
