2.5 days in Naples, Herclaneum, Pompeii

Jump to last reply

I have Friday noonish until late Sunday in May to tick ``see everything related to Vesuvius'' off my bucket list. (Arriving Friday from Ischia, leaving early Monday from Naples airport.) I am female, and will be traveling alone. I'm still working on my stamina after getting my new metal hips, and can maybe walk 3/4 mile (call it 1 kilometer) before needing to stop and rest bit. I've been to Italy about a half-dozen times, but not this region.

My list includes a visit to Herclanaeum, to Pompeii, and the archeological museum in Naples. So...

Where should I stay (area and/or hotel)? Near the Naples train station for easy access to the Circumvesuviana, or is that too sketchy an area? In another town or city, maybe? Something below 150 Euros per night would be good.

How should I arrange my time? For example, can I see Herclanaeum and Pompeii in the same day? What else to see in Naples besides the museum?

Any recommendations as to audio tours and books? Anything else I should know?
