|Subject: Pompeii (was:Italy in February)|
Pompeii is, of course, fascinating. But right at Rome there are the wonderful ruins of Ostia Antica. Perhaps you could tempt your son with some reading about Ostia Antica and distract him. ;-)
But Pompeii could be combined with a visit to Sorrento, which is fun, or Capri, Ischia, or Naples. You could certainly find plenty to see and do.
