Since my family and I will be in Naples during a cruise in late April, and we would like to do a tour on our own because the ship excursions can be expensive for four persons and we already have tours booked for Ephesus, Turkey and two stops in Egypt.
Reading all the posts, I know a one day stop in Naples is not enough to do both Pompei and Capri, but I am swaying towards Capri because I think my two daughters in the early 20's may enjoy relaxing walking in Capri, rather than touring Pompei. My other concern is if we did Pompei by train, taxis ripping us off with a fare from the port to the train station and not finding the correct track and train and heading in the wrong direction? If we did do Pompei, we would like to go then to Sorrento to catch the hydrofoil back to Naples. Again, we are nervous of getting on the wrong train and going in the wrong direction.
Would it be easier to just take the hydrofoil from the port of Naples to Capri or should I also be concerned that we may get stuck because the hydrofoils won't run because of bad weather.
Should be just take a ship excursion to Pompei so we know the ship won't leave without us.
Thanks for all the input.
