Best day of week to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Paestum?

Is there a best day to visit each of these places? Is there a difference in crowds during the week versus weekends? Will these sites be open Easter Sunday and Easter Monday?

Don't go on Easter Monday. The places like Pompei are crowded! Paestum might be ok but there is extra traffic on the roads.

Paestum seem always to be very quiet - it gets amazingly few visitors for such an incredible site.

Thank you both for your input. It sounds like Easter Sunday and Monday might be good days to stay off the road and take a local hike (Amalfi/Atrani).
