Rome/Florence/Italy with an older person- I am back!! it is possible.

Jump to last reply

I thank everyone that gave me tips as to how to travel with my mother who cannot walk two long without needing a place to sit. Yes, we did Rome, Florence and Rome (we passed by Pisa of course).

We found a place to rest everywhere all the time. People that do not need to sit down do not notice chairs, benches, etc. We went to these great cities in October and found lots of people, but not as crowded as they say it is in the Summer time.

I carried a folding chair. The brand is "Roots". It was tall enough to make the entire process of standing up easy for my mother. It looked like a big umbrella hanging from my shoulder.

The Vatican guards kept themselves busy asking me what it was. Other than that all was very cool!. Carry a piece of paper with an explanation as to why you carry a folding chair in Italian. It makes everybody happy.

Cheers and go and Travel with older people, it is a lot of fun, and very rich.
