Pompeii: itinerary efficiency

Hello! We are heading to Italy for 10 days and I’m looking for opinions or any advice you can share from experience, please! My rough itinerary is as follows: day 1 land very early in Rome, straight to Positano for 3 nights; day 4 head to Capri for 3 nights, day 7 head back to Rome for 3 nights. We would like to stop and see Pompeii and Vesuvius and I’m trying to come up with the best plan to do so!

I’m wondering if we should stop on our way from Capri to Rome OR if we should drop a night from Capri and book a night in Sorrento or Naples to do this as a day trip? I’m stressing over what to do as we only have so much time and I want to cover so much ground! I don’t love the idea of changing hotels too frequently but open to it if it makes sense. any insight or advice is much appreciated and thanks so much I’m advance for reading this!

For me is better to visit Pompei departing from Naples (there are many trains any hours, go and back). You can book a night in one of the hotel near the Central Station of Naples.

And I would see Pompeii on the way from Capri to Rome provided you hire a private transfer to drive you there and wait with luggage and then take you to Naples train. Or, perhaps do it as a day trip from Capri or Positano although I find once I am situated especially on Capri or Positano, that I want to stay put!
