For the train, go to the Naples main train station (Garibaldi station). Go downstairs and buy a ticket for the Circumvesuviana train. Get off at the Scavi Villa Misteri stop for Pompei. See for more info. About a 35-minute ride.

It helps to have a guide as the remains can be difficult to invision. We spent 3 hours w/o guide in heat of summer.

There are usually guides offering their service at the entrance to the site. You can usually find other people to share the cost of a guide too.
