Hello, From Rome, can you easily do a day trip by train to Pompeii? So, Rome to Pompeii and return to Rome in one day. Do you have to reserve to visit Pompeii or can you just buy an entry ticket (if needed) once on site? Any advice on what train(s) to take would be appreciated. Thanks. Andy
I've made this trip many times. Take a train from Roma Termini to Napoli Centrale and then take the Circumvesuviana train from Naples Centrale to the Pompeii station which is just outside one of the entrances to Pompeii. The Circumvesuviana is a local train that runs on a published schedule and does not require/take reservations.
We usually leave Rome early in the day and return in the early evening.
