Roma Experience has launched a collection of new accessible Rome tours available to anyone with unique access requirements. These exclusive tours explore the Colosseum and Vatican City, with itineraries to accommodate those with disabilities.
Each tour includes pickup from guests’ hotel in a private minivan designed for those with disabilities, before heading to the ancient sites to meet a private guide. Roma’s new Vatican itinerary, modified to accommodate those with access requirements, begins at the Vatican Museums where visitors will have the chance to gaze upon the artwork before gaping at the School of Athens.
Colosseum accessible tour includes an expert guide. The first and second floor of the amphitheatre is accessible via an elevator and a step-free entrance is also available.
Davide Bolognesi, marketing manager of Roma Experience said: “Italy is not one of those countries that would typically be considered easily accessible for those with additional access needs, thanks to its cobbled streets and rolling hills. Our brand-new accessible tours are designed in consultation with disability advocates to perfect the itineraries for wheelchair users and people with other mobility issues. We want to take you to see Italy’s most beloved sights, in ease and comfort.”
The accessible tours all include an accessible vehicle, specifically modified for wheelchair users, accessible itineraries adapted for those with needs, a tour guide, and skip-the-line entry.
