What is the best way to get from the Port to Train station? Is it walking distance? How much would a cab ride cost?

The best way is take a taxi, it costs about 15/20 Euro.

taxis have a set price list on the back of their seats - if they don't, ask to see one. i think the set price for Molo Beverelo (main port) to Stazione Centrale is 6-9euro. total, not per person. luggage costs .50 extra per bag but they may try to charge you 1euro each. the set price list is there for a reason, it's written in italian and in english - refer to it and insist on being charged what is written. period. don't let them intimidate you... if your driver is courteous, a 10-15% tip is nice.

as for getting to Pompei after that, you'll want to go one level underground and follow signs for Circumvesuviana. this is a local commuter/tourist set of 4 or 5 train lines. the one you want has a final destination of Sorrento and you'll get off at Pompei Scavi. attention - there are two lines that serve pompei - one serves the city of pompei and the other serves the archeological site... you want Pompei Scavi (direction Sorrento). the ticket will cost you either one euro or possibly 1.70 euro. Buy these at the circumvesuviana ticket windows downstairs or at the giornali stand before you enter the area of the platforms. when you exit the station in pompei, you will turn right and walk about 100 meters and the entrance is right there on your left - very easy, trust me.

We will be in Naples in August for one day. After visiting Pompeii, we would like to see the city as well. What is the best way to do it and how?
