FIRST TRIP TO ROME & BARCELONA; NEED HELP

Jump to last reply

We redeemed miles for what will be our ONLY trip to MED. Hard to explain in sound bites--I am disabled. Have compression fractures in spine; have been home 12 years post accident dreaming of places I've always wanted to see!

Had some success with spine injections that gave me more mobility--for now--and so we booked 10 day cruise (9/14-9/24) on Oceania in MED.

Only time we could get seats is why we booked flying into ROME arrive @ 9 am 9/11 FCO. Thought oh we'll see ROME & BARCELONA before boarding ship (we also have day we disembark off ship 9/24--but how long I don't know. Have never cruised nor been to MED!!!)

Redeeming miles BC to try to insure I could rest to help mobility on what for me will be tough physical journey (everything is different once that spine is really messed up--grateful you don't understand). Arrive in ROME @ 9 am 9/11 and leave out of BARCELONA on cruise 9/14 that ends in ROME. Depart @ 9 am 9/25 to fly back to DFW.

Thought we'd get a hotel in Rome when we land am of 9/11, check-in SOMEWHERE & rest that day. Next am hire private tour to see ROME 9/12, check out am 9/13 am, fly to BARCELONA (haven't booked this flight yet), check in to hotel & see GAUDI SUNDAY afternoon??? Sounds ludicrous as I type it!!

Check out am 9/14 & go to cruise @ Noon.

Have to hire transfer people to/from
Airport FCO & one way BARCELONA as we aren't able to do what we used to do. I can walk & so can hubby; I just know I'll need to spend $$ to insure I can see most & still be able to move succeeding day. These aren't considerations for most people.

Need help with ROME & BARCELONA hotels! I think Hotel Colon in BARCELONA sounds nice; will we be able to see GAUDI on a Sunday afternoon???

ROME hotel???? Beginning to realize that hotel with great a/c, king bed, English speaking, oh and hubby is diabetic so need great breakfast which is eggs & protein base as opposed to pastries--feeling frustrated & overwhelmed as I can't find hotel in ROME that reviews on trip advisor don't eliminate for some of previously listed reasons!

THANK YOU for trying to help me!!!

Advice greatly appreciated!
