Pompeii is to archaeology, what the Empire State building is to architecture, so it's important to do it right - and trust me it is very, very possible to do it wrong. I'll prelude this itinerary with stating that this was not my first visit to Pompeii but it sure felt like it was. My first visit to Pompeii back in 2013 was as part of a day tour from Rome, which also included a hike up Mount Vesuvius. Although the trip included a guided 2-hour tour of Pompeii we failed to see much of the archaeological site and only saw 3 plaster casts (of which 1 was hidden behind thick metal bars). For the two hours, we stuck largely to the main entrance area and saw only the forum (stop 6), Terme Stabiene (stop 40), the Grand Theatre (stop 43) and the Brothel, skipping many of the known highlights of the site such as the Amphitheatre (stop 60), the House of Mysteries (stop 30) and the House of Fawn (stop 17). So upon returning to Pompeii last month with 8 hours up my sleeves to see all that I could, it felt like I was getting a second first chance to do Pompeii properly all over again. Below I've compiled a recommended itinerary to allow you to see all the highlights of Pompeii (as well as Herculaneum if you so desire) in one day from Naples.
