Hire wheel chair at colosseum

Hi

I am travelling to Rome and will be visiting colosseum. I have a blue badge due to reduced mobility and walking difficulties.

I was wondering if I can hire a wheel chair ar Colosseum. If yes, will my blue badge be a sufficient evidence?

Thanks J

I am not aware of wheelchairs being available at the Colosseum (they are available at the Vatican Museums: museivaticani.va/content/…accessibilita.html )

This may help as to some tips for visiting the Colosseum in a wheelchair: www.sagetraveling.com/Rome-Disabled-Access Note they also have a link for a quote for a wheelchair rental in Rome, and I listed a few more possibilities in this prior thread: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18779…

There definitely aren't any wheelchairs for hire at the Colosseum, you'd have to bring one with you that you had rented elsewhere.

Your blue badge would only be useful for parking concessions, if you will be using a vehicle in Rome.

If you have a wheelchair at home, why not take it with you. Airlines carry them FOC
