The Pompei Archaeological Site of Rome is 239 kilometers away. You can get there on your own in 2.5 hours by car or by public transport - trains and buses, but this will be a whole adventure. In the article I will tell you in detail about all the options, let's go!
- The exact address of the complex: Via Villa dei Misteri, 80045 Pompei NA, Italy
The most interesting thing to get to Pompeii, traveling in a rented car. You can lay a route parallel to the sea along the SS7 highway and stop, for example, in Anzio, Sabaudia, Terracina or Sperlonga, swim in the sea or even spend the night in one of these resort towns. I personally would gladly return to Sperlonga - the old part of the city there is just fabulous.

The road from Rome to Pompeii without stops on the E45 toll road will take you about 2.5 hours. For gasoline and toll payment, it will take about 40-50 euros one way. It’s the cheapest to rent a car immediately upon arrival at Fiumicino Airport. You can also order a car at the office at the central station.

To get to Pompeii by train, you first have to come to Naples. I advise you to choose high-speed trains Italotreno. Travel time to Naples and Roma Termini Station in Rome will be 1 hour 10 minutes, you can read about all the options in this article. Tickets for a train cost from 12 euros, for a bus from 8 euros.
Tip: Naples has the opportunity to book an individual tour to Pompeii with a professional local guide. You will be met right at the station, taken to the archaeological complex. Such an excursion costs 200 euros for 3 hours.
Taking a guide from Rome is a bad idea, plus most likely he will not have a license and sufficient knowledge to tell you about Ancient Pompeii without common phrases.
From Naples to Pompeii there is an electric train and buses (I do not recommend), we wrote about these options in great detail in this section.
It is optimal to leave Rome in the morning at 07:40, then at 08:50 you will find yourself in Naples and after about an hour in Pompeii.
Leaving later, especially between April and October, you run the risk of being at your destination in the sun. Also keep in mind that in the south of Italy most restaurants close from 14:30 to 19:00 - if you do not have time to return to Naples before 13:00, then you run the risk of being left without a full lunch.
