My husband and I want to find a good place to stay that will make it convenient to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum. We are traveling Italy in a rental car. We are spending one night 10/9 near Paestum. Then we will spent 10/10 - 10/16 exploring Naples area before turning in car at the airport before flying to Sardinia. Maybe not too far from Naples airport, but not necessarily.
Also, is it better to book a tour that will take us to either of the ruins?. Or would we be better off driving there ourselves?
