Pompeii is a really cool place to visit while you’re in Italy. It took an entire day to take a train ride there from Rome, enjoy the site, make a quick stop in Naples, and then back to Rome.
When visiting Pompeii in early summer I recommend light clothing, comfortable shoes, and a bottle to refill water with.
The actual site is a quick 10 min. walk from the train station. The location of the ruins is so large itself so be prepared to do lots of walking! Also, grab a map because it can get quite confusing trying to find your way.
This picture doesn’t do the view any justice. This spot was an incredible view of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius in the background.
