If you are in Rome and don't think you have enough time to go to Pompei you can go to Ostia Antica. From what I was told in the roman empire this was the port for Rome. Ostia covers quite a big area, you can easily spend half a day or more there! Remember to bring water as it gets really hot in the summer.

Directions: Take the train to Ostia Antica (Lido). From Termini you have to change trains once. Not hard at all.
