Visiting Italy

Hi, we are thinking about holidaying in Italy next year and ideally would like to visit Pompeii for a day trip. Any ideas of places to stay on the coast near enough for us to visit Pompeii as a day trip please?

Using public transportation, Pompei is about equidistant between Naples and Sorrento. Which is a better fit for you depends on your interests and likes/dislikes and what you want from this vacation.

Naples for city experience and Sorrento for a smaller town/by the sea vibe. Many will recommend the Amalfi Coast villages as well but IMO they are not a great base as it is a bit of a chore to get back and forth and I never want to leave once I have arrived on the AC! However, Pompeii can easily be seen on the way to or from the Amalfi Coast if you are using Naples are a travel point of departure or arrival.
