Alternative to walking tours

Mum and I will be spending nearly two days in Rome. I have been searching through these forums looking for ideas on tours. It seems most of the tours are walking ones. Mum was hoping to find a tour that doesnt involve a lot of walking as she has a sore back. I have seen information about the Rome cab tours and hop on hop off buses but not a lot else. Can anyone suggest something that would enable us to see lots of the sights. Also can anyone give me an idea about how much the Rome cab tours might cost. Thanks for your help.

For the cost of the romecabs tour you should check out their website as they offer different tours of the city.

Have you thought about segway tours of Rome? They have a website /www.segwayfirenze.com/rometours.asp that might help.

Part of the problem is that buses cannot really reach a lot of the main tourist sites (due to narrow streets, heavy traffic, etc). That leaves cabs as your main option, and they can be expensive.

One thing I enjoyed previously was the Archeobus which is an open minibus that departs from Termini and does the Appian Way. You can get off and see the catacombs and maybe walk a little on the Appian Way or you can just stay on the bus and see the sights. There is audio commentary in several languages.
