Naples day trip from Rome or overnight stay

Looking at adding Naples to my time in Italy. I have 9 night in Rome (I will have been traveling for 5 weeks and have 4 more to go). I am looking at adding Naples. I already have accomidations in Rome but am now looking at still doing an overnight in Naples. Have you found two days one night is easy to fill in Naples. I would take an early train from Rome on Sunday morning and late return on Monday (if I do overnight) I will have just a school sized backpack with overnight items.

Looking for a place to stay. Would it be best to stay by the train station as I can drop my bag at the hotel when I arrive in Naples and pick it up on the way back. Not looking for anything fancy. Or would it be better to stay more central in the historic centre of Naples.

If you have any suggestions for accomidations that would be great looking at under 140 euro if possible

I have looked at the Ibis styles by the train station or the Fly Hotel near the Piazza Mercato.

The Ibis is more but a fast walk to the train station.

Looking at October 16 and 17th.

EDIT: My original post was a little unclear. I am sorry. I am interested in the National Archeological Museum, Royal Palace, Castel dell'Ovo as well as a few other churches. To me its seems like enough for two days. I assumes one would be very rushed.

ChristineH thank you for the link. Lots of food for thought. It strange I have had like many others two years of trips planned and cancelled. Somehow despite leaving Toronto in less than 3 weeks I still do not feel 100% like it will happen.

We go to Naples each Christmas and stay at least four nights, and longer if my work allows. There's so much pizza to eat!

When we are not eating pizza, we fill the time with day trips to the islands/Amalfi Coast, shopping, people-watching, etc.

naples is an amazing city with tons of art and architecture to enjoy. just the caravaggios and the cloister of santa chiara are worth the trip to the city. also, don't know if you are planning to visit pompeii. i stayed for two days in an airbnb couple of blocks from the station and didn't feel rushed for what i wanted to see.

There is more than enough to fill 2 days. I stayed at a budget place one long block from the train station called Sweet Sleep, Via Alessandro Poerio 14. It was great. I even had a tiny balcony and it was quiet at night. I walked all around the historic center from there.

I liked the RS walking tour. It begins across the street from the museum.
