Best way to see Pompeii from Rome in a day.

Hello Shirley,

As your time in the Amalfi area is so limited, my advice would be to visit Pompei en route from Rome to the Amalfi Coast. You could deposit your luggage at Naples Station (or at Pompei itself), - depending on your ultimate destination.

If you're planning to stay in Amalfi itself this is definitely your best plan, as Amalfi-Pompei by public transport takes 2 hours each way!

Dear Steve,
Thank you so much for your valued suggestion. I will definitely take your advice and do Pompeii en route from Rome to Naples, and leave the time I have for Amalfi for the sites in that area. Are you a fan of Naples? If so, what specifically do you suggest that we see in the short time we'll have for Naples and Pompeii?

Shirley - If you were planning more time in that area I would definitely recommend a day in Naples, but as your stay is so short my choices would be Ravello, Positano, Sorrento & Capri.
If you want to fit in more, how about Paestum or Ercolano, - or even a trip up Vesuvius?
Really you need at least a week to see the best of this area ...
