      Getting to Naples airport

      Naples Feb 10, 2017 at 2:07 PM

      I just realized that our flight leaving Naples is at 6:45am. I've booked a hotel that's a 12 minute drive from the airport, but we won't be driving. How's the cab situation during that time of the day? We will be staying at the B&B Milionaria. Thanks!

We are thinking of hiring a car to travel onto Pisa/ Rome after Pompei so trying to work out whether it would be best to pick at the airport or whether there are better alteratives and leave hiring a car till we have had acouple of days sight seeing in Pompei? Any advice would be welcome , I have looked at a couple of Bed and Breakfast places in Pomei that seem reasonably priced or would we best staying in Sorrento or elsewhere ?

      Naples to Pompeii to Benevento

      by onehipdad Online Now Jan 15, 2015 at 7:05 PM

      I'm arriving in Naples Sat. 8 Feb. from Bilbao, Spain around 1pm. I would like to visit Pompeii & Herculaneum on Sunday, but I have to be in Benevento that night for work on Monday. Should I train to Pompeii for Sat. night? It looks like I'd have to take a train back to Naples, then to Benevento, taking about three hours. How late do the trains run, and what time should I plan to leave Pompeii on Sunday?

      Pompeii and Naples day trip from Rome, is my Plan possible

      by AbhinavA Online Now Apr 10, 2014 at 1:46 PM

      Hi guys

      I am planning a day trip from Rome to Pompeii and Naples National Archaeological Museum. I know it will be a stretched day, but we are 2 young guys(23 yrs) and we think we may be able to pull it off. Please review the following plan and help me understand if I may be missing any caveats.

      - Take Frecciarossa at 7-35AM from Roma Termini. Reach Naples at 8-45AM.
      - Take the other train to Pompeii Scavi. I believe we would be able to enter the site by 9-45AM? Am I right?
      - Explore Pompeii for about 4-5 hours and leave the site around 2-45 to 3 pm. Is this time too much or too less or appropriate?
      - Take the train back to Naples, Then Take the Metro to the National Museum. Expect to enter the museum around 4-15.
      - Enjoy the museum for a couple of hours (Only stuff related to Pompeii), Leave the Museum before 6-30 PM
      - Reach Da Michele's Pizza from the museum and have a great Napoli Pizza. I hope the waiting should not be much if I reach before 7pm. If the waiting is too much then I could go to Pizzeria Trianon across the street from Da Michelle.
      - After the Pizza feast head back to Napoli centrale and take the Intercity Train to Rome at 8-30pm.

      Please give me your thoughts about this and also feel free to shout it out loud if you think this is crazy. :-) :-)

      I will be in Rome for 1 day only on a cruise ship. How far from Rome is the sea Port? I have been told the port is about an hour from Rome but I am not sure. I would really like to see Pompeii and wondered if it would be possible to hire a car/guide for the day. At this stage I understand the ship will be in port from 7am till 7pm. The people I am travelling with have been to Rome before, but by plane and we would like to know if we do no other sightseeing except Pompeii would it be possible in that timeframe, Thanks for any information

      Pompeii + Vesuvius

      by manuna Online Now May 30, 2013 at 11:00 PM

      I am planning to make a 1 day trip Pompeii+Vesuvius in August. We will go by car and we plan to start rather early, at 8 a.m. I remember that it was very hot in Pompeii when I was there last time. On the one hand going up Vesuvius also can be hot, but on the other it is a little bit colder up there. So the question is ; what should I start with Pompeii or Vesuvius?
      May be there is something else that I should take into account? May be crouds of other tourists coming by bus-excursions? Where they are more likely and at what time?
