It is really not ideal to leave a car with luggage while you are touring Pompeii. At a minimum I would say 2-3 hours to tour the site. Keep in mind it is very hot and there is no shade so plan accordingly especially with kids. Hats, sunscreen, loose fitting clothes and lots of water.

Just drove to Pompeii and went all the way past the hawkers waving "parking" signs and headed to the front gate and parked in a small parking lot right after called Zeus. It was 15 euro for the day and steps to the front gate. We had some things locked in the trunk and all went well, but I would never park a car in any lot with luggage that can be viewed through the window. We spent over three hours there and loved it, but bought water before we entered. Also, downloaded free Rick Steves audio tour on our phones and it was fine. In fact, we preferred exploring on our own. The Steves tours are extremely basic, but if you don't want to shell out for a tour they are enough. I had additional info from a book and together it worked out. Went to Caupona for lunch after (2 miles away) and loved that as well!

You can leave luggage in car if nothing valuable is in it other than just clothes.
