If you are in Naples you should visit the museum. You should plan on a couple/few hours. There is a lot of items from Pompeii and other cities destroyed by Mount Vesuvius. Also some amazing marble sculptures.

The museum houses the frescoes, mosaics, statues and other artifacts from nearby Pompeii and Herculaneum. A wonderful collection assembled in one place, with wall panels in English as well as Italian. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

If you are at all interested in the history of Pompeii the National Archaeological Museum is a must as they have many artifacts and a miniature replica of the city as it was when it was excavated.
