For those who love visiting ruins and learning more about the past of our civilization, a day trip to Pompeii is a must for everybody visiting Rome, and as I fit this classification, I knew I had to visit Pompeii at some point in my life. So when I finally went to Italy, I took this opportunity to go to Pompeii as a day trip from Rome.
Pompeii is located close to Naples, it is a huge ruin site from ancient times, if you wish to visit the site completely you would need to plan at least one complete day to do so, and spend the night in Naples, to make it less tiring, otherwise, you can easily visit Pompeii as a day trip from Rome.
Of course you have options of taking a day tour to Pompeii from Rome, however, I found it quite hard to find a tour that would take you from your hotels, instead, there are many tours leaving from Piazza del Popolo, and some that you have to make your way to Naples by yourself, and meet the tor group in Napoli Centrale Station.
In my case, it was way easier to go there by ourselves, since our hotel was close to the Colosseum, and pretty far away from Piazza del Popolo, and nobody wanted to wake up early. Turned out it was definitely the best option.
