Where to stay in Pompeii

For easy foot access to Pompeii's archeological sites, consider checking into a hotel or B&B near the world-famous excavations. You can walk around the ruins by day and enjoy panoramic views of the area from your balcony by night. Centrally located Pompeii hotels are conveniently situated near the area's main road and railway networks, making them an ideal base for exploring the surrounding region and the Amalfi Coast. You can also choose to book your rooms in nearby Sorrento or Naples, which offer a wider range of less expensive hostels and self-catering apartments.
