We spent all afternoon walking the city. The place is huge, much larger than I ever imagined. My only regret is I wish I would have been read more about it before I got there. I think it would have made it even more interesting. It is almost unbelievable to think that the art and buildings have survived so remarkably well preserved. If you are close to Pompeii, don't miss it. The only negative of our entire visit was the on-site cafeteria. I'd suggest bringing a snack and only using this place as a restroom stop!
