Interesting for a visit. We got the local train directly from Sorrento which was really easy (but not air conditioned). We did an audio guide, but it was quite hard to follow so if I went again, I’d do a guided tour from the site. Make sure you take water and a hat or umbrella as it’s very hot when sunny! We only spent about 2 hours here, although you could spend longer easily.

We had wanted to visit Pompeii for many years. It was worth the wait. The scale of the site is amazing, so be prepared for a lot of walking. A few of our party found it a bit much as much of the walking is on uneven ground and not a lot of shelter.
Do take refreshments with you as once you are in the grounds there is nowhere to buy anything.
If you are using public transport - the train station is only a five minute walk to the site.
So glad we visited and would recommend

We were a group of 12 members from India. The fact that this town was destroyed by the ash n lava thrown by mt vesuvius attracted us to this place. We booked a day tour from rome through viator. Worth every bit, the tour around Pompeii bought history alive. Its beautifully maintained..clean. The tour guide was very good. All in all worth every penny.

This was in June. Ticket advice: buy tickets ahead on line and go to the line with no line to the right of the ticket line! We didn't, and wasted 40 minutes in line - the tour guides get to bring in whole groups of people ahead of you. So even if you think you are close to the booth, you are not. That said, once in, be sure to wear hiking boots, seriously. My sneakers were not up to the uneven large stone walkways. Those in flip flops suffered (one in our group). And I would not recommend it for anyone under 9 or 10 who can find something interesting in the site. Our 3 and 7 year old grandchildren wanted to leave after 10 minutes. We covered about 1/2 the area in a couple hours And the crowds really took away from the fun for me, anyway. I enjoyed the museum in Naples with all the artifacts better than the site. Consider it.

You've heard about it but to be able to see the ruins is amazing. You can clearly see the streets and foundations of buildings. The amphitheater and courtyards are great. But the most amazing thing is to see Mt. Vesuvius in the distance .
