Experience Rome's splendid historic beauty and architecture during this orientation tour of Rome that has been specially-designed for guests with walking difficulties.
Depart the pier for the drive into Rome. Upon arrival, you will pass by the Vatican walls that delineate the area of Vatican City, Lungotevere and the Ara Pacis. You will then pass by the Roman Walls, or Muro Torto, and the Villa Borghese before entering the Old Town near Porta Pinciana.
Next, you will see many beautiful and historic sites that include Via Vittorio Veneto, the symbol of the Italian dolce vita, the white marble Victor Emmanuel II Monument, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine, Circus Maximus and finally, St. Peter's Basilica. Some free time will then be made available in People’s Square (Viale Washington) which is very close to many of Rome’s important landmarks: the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps and to the Italy’s finest shopping streets: Via del Corso, Via Frattina and Via del Tritone.

The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them.
