We'll be in Sorrento next week and would like to go see Mt. Vesuvius and some ruins. We're traveling with our 2 kids ages 9&7. Would you recommend Pompeii or Herculaneum? Also, what's the best way to get there? I'm thinking the Campania Train but just wanted to see how easy this is.
Pompeii for me, but with kids that young Herculaneum is probably the better option. I will say that November might be ideal to see Pompeii though, since hardly any shade there and won't be hot like Spring or Summer.
