Consider Herculaneum over Pompeii


the ruins are much better there, it's less crowded and its a short walk from the train station with places to eat along way. We went to both Pompeii and Herculaneum about 2 years ago and everyone agreed that Herculaneum was better. We paid for a walking tour that was given by an archeology student from the University of Naples and it was fantastic. Tour was around 20 Euro/pp if I recall correctly.
