"Hello, operator? connect me with Pompei..."
It's not a bad thing, and okay if your hands aren't full (like mine were) with a Pompei guide book in hand, a camera (try to take pics with all this stuff), backpack and whatever else. Just pray it doesn't rain. First of all, the Audio Guide tips are rather brief, and don't go into much detail. It's not a bad deal at 6 euro, but you will get more from the Pompei book or by using a human tour guide
Unique Suggestions: Purchase two of the "Audio guies, as it's only 9 euro for two
Fun Alternatives: Pay 7,50 for a Pompei guide book, and follow the tour trail in the book. Besides, you can keep the book, but must return the Audio Guide unless you don't care about forfeiting your ID.
Better yet, discretely follow along by one of the tour groups. You didn't hear that one from me ;-)
Any of the markets can be a tourist trap. Careful on what you buy, and double check the box and/or bag to ensure what you paid for is actually inside. Trust me on this one. MY buddies and I bought some really nice beer bottle and rock filled boxes that were supposed to be Video cameras. aaagghhh! Careful especially around Piazza Girabaldi, which is where Napoli Centrale train station is.
