Wheelchair Accessible Van Tours in Rome Italy

This Rome wheelchair accessible van tour is an excellent way for disabled tourists to visit all the major tourist sights in Rome with the explanation of a tour guide.  The tourist sights in Rome are quite spread out and this tour allows you to easily visit many of them in a single day. The van used for this tour has a wheelchair ramp that make it easy for motorized wheelchair users or manual wheelchair users to get on and off.

Your tour guide will meet you at your hotel at 8:30 am to begin your full day of Rome sightseeing.  During the Rome wheelchair accessible van tour, you will see some sights from the van and others you will see by getting out of the van and going inside.  The tour covers all of the major tourist sights including the ancient Rome sights such as the Coloseum, Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, and Aventine Hill.

The Renaissance and Baroque sights that you will visit include the Holy Steps Church, San Giovanni in Laterno, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps.  Your Vatican sightseeing will include the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, and Vatican Museums.  Your driver / tour guide will return you to your hotel when the Rome wheelchair accessible van tour finishes around 5:30 pm.

Other Rome accessible tours that cover many of the same sights are the full day Rome accessible walking tour or the Rome accessible driving tour at night.
