Wheelchair Accessible Tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum

This Roman Forum and Colosseum accessible tour visits the two greatest remnants of Ancient Rome: the Colosseum towering overhead and the Roman Forum sunken below street level. The Colosseum is wheelchair friendly, and the Roman Forum, which has some obstacles, can also be visited in a wheelchair.

The views and the photo opportunities are some of the best in Rome, but to really understand what events led to their creation, their use, and their demise, you’ll need the explanation of a local expert. What are those holes in the walls of the Colosseum? Why do people leave flowers on that dirt mount in the Roman Forum? Why was that victory arch built? Learn everything you have ever wanted to know about Ancient Rome on this tour.

Accessibility Description

This Rome accessible guided tour tackles some of the oldest ruins in Rome. The Colosseum has been completely modernized and has smooth flat pavement throughout it except for a small band of cobblestones shown on our Colosseum disabled access page. An elevator leads up to the second level of the Colosseum for a different viewpoint.

The Roman Forum and Colosseum accessible tour travels along the sidewalk connecting the Colosseum and Roman Forum which is flat and smooth. At the Roman Forum entrance, you will find an elevator that can take you down into the ruins. Once you get there, only about 20% of the grounds are wheelchair accessible. The other 80% have large gaps in the rocks and ancient stairs. A video of the accessibility challenges for this Roman Forum and Colosseum accessible tour is shown on our Roman Forum disabled access page.

* Important note:  Wheelchair accessible transportation is not included on this tour.  Private wheelchair accessible van pick-up at your hotel can be reserved in advance for 110 euro each way.
