I'd not advocate skipping Pompei in favor of Baia, but I certainly wouldn't miss these amazingly accessible ruins. The baths are particularly intact. Baia also offers underwater scuba tours that are worl class.

Ah, be prepared to walk! Lots to see and more to imagine. At beginning there is a fallen "Parthenon" style building to Diana, and then you can enter the baths themselves after walking up hill to the entrance (and pay a fee). Well worth it.
