I am traveling to Rome in September and I'm taking my mother along. She is 72 years old and cannot walk more than 200 meters without taking a rest. She also needs to sit down quite often. I would love to visit the Vatican museums and Saint Peter's Basilica, but not sure how we are going to visit most of the Vatican sights. As I understand, it is quite a walk through the museums if you want to visit the Sistine Chapel.
I was thinking about hiring an individual tour guide, who would walk with our pace and would be willing to stop often. Not sure if I can find someone like that... they will probably charge a fortune for such an arrangement?
Do you know if they have some sort of electric cars or some other forms of transportation for elderly or disabled individuals?
Any advice would be highly appreciated!
