Stick to sight-seeing - it's cheaper and easier.  Used to be lots of signorinas del notte lining the Via Veneto and hanging out in the hotel bars there back in the Dark Ages but I suspect that they have all moved on from there these days.  Prostitution requires a lot more resourcefulness and probably a lot more money throughout Italy now but it probably the ripest country for tourism in all of Europe.

Bugger Roma,  Get the train to Napoli, get out at Centrale. Look for the Circumvesuvina which is a local electric railway with a sepaprate station to the main one.  Dont let touts offer to take you there.  You will need a separate ticket from the main railway.  book to Pompeii Scavi and take a blue line Napoli-sorrento train http://www.eavcampania.it/web/sites/default/files/allegati/sorrento_0.pdf  Then go to the Pompeii roman site.  and go to the brothel!

 

Praps best to stay overnight in Napoli then you can get to pompeii early, do your sightseeing before it gets hot.

 

Pompeii is one of the best things I have done  (Punting excluded!)

Herculaneum perhaps even better (and smaller).

have you done both?  Seem to be 2 classes of people. those who say Herculaneum is best and those who say Pompeii is best.

Herculaneum has a station on the same circumvesuvino train.
