Tour suggestions for mobile but not agile traveler

Jump to last reply

OK, I know that is asking a lot; however, age is slowing me down. I have 2 bad knees and a bad back. I get along OK in normal situations, but I am not able to walk long distances. I want to go to Europe, especially France, Italy, Belgium, Poland, etc, but I am afraid to venture out with my limited mobility. I love ancient ruins and, of course, they do not tend to be very accessible for those of us with our own personal claim on being an ancient ruin. I am looking for any suggestions of places which are not so hard to access, or even of tour companies, day trips, etc that specialize in getting you up as close as possible to the site, so your walking is focused on the site itself.

I have to travel on a budget, so no fancy solutions will work. In 2006 I went to Rome and Africa , and in 2009 I went to 6 countries in Europe and also England and Wales. I loved them all. I used Couchsurfing and it worked wonderfully well in some ways but also added to my logistical hassles. I would probably try to use it again but in a more limited way. I am also looking into Air B&B, hoping to find a place CLOSE to transportation.

I am hoping some of you who are also "mobile but not agile" have some suggestions to share. Thanks in advance.
