Worth staying in Pompeii overnight?

I will be traveling to Pompeii from Rome and it looks like a day trip will be quite long. Is it worth staying in Pompeii or even Naples overnight?

It depends. A day trip is doable, but if you would like to spend most of a day in Pompeii, staying overnight is not a bad idea. I'd suggest Naples rather than Pompeii itself: you can still get an early start in Pompeii, and there are more things to do and see in Naples.

Yes. I stayed in Modern Pompei for 10 nights and went to Pompeii ruins for 3 days in 2006. You can get a really early start on the ruins that way. We stayed at Villa dei Misteri Hotel near the Circumvesuviana stop. Venere.com can give you lots of options. We ate supper either in downtown modern Pompei on the other side of the ruins or took the train (30 min) to Sorrento for shopping and dinner.
